Release category: Other releases disclosed according to the rules of Exchange
Fortum has today successfully returned to the fixed income market and issued five and ten year bonds with a total nominal amount of EUR 1.15 billion under its Euro Medium Term Note (EMTN) programme. The bonds were issued across two tranches with the following maturities:
- EUR 500 million maturing on 26 May 2028 with a 4.0% fixed coupon
- EUR 650 million maturing on 26 May 2033 with a 4.5% fixed coupon
The bonds were allocated to more than 100 institutional investors and will be listed on the Luxembourg Stock Exchange. The proceeds will be used for general corporate purposes with the main objective to refinance existing debt and extend the maturity profile of the company’s debt portfolio.
“Fortum has successfully returned to a stable footing after a volatile period amidst the energy crisis. Our overall financial situation is solid, and we are very pleased to have made a return to the European fixed income market. The euro bond issuance will further increase our financial flexibility, says Fortum’s CFO Tiina Tuomela.
“The good demand for our bonds demonstrates the interest and confidence in Fortum’s renewed business strategy. The market clearly appreciates our focus on reliable clean power generation and driving decarbonisation of industries in the Nordics with our best-in-class asset portfolio”, she concludes.
Barclays and BNP Paribas acted as Joint Global Coordinators, and together with Danske Bank, ING, Mizuho and Nordea acted as Joint Bookrunners on the transaction.
