Quant issues senior bonds totaling EUR 29.5 million in connection with acquisition of Sataservice
Global maintenance leader Quant AB has issued further bonds of EUR 29.5 million under the senior secured bond agreement originally entered into in February 2018.
The issuance of further senior bonds is made in connection with Quant’s acquisition of Sataservice, a strong local Finnish industrial maintenance provider with revenues of above EUR 40 million the last twelve months, more than 400 employees and operations on more than 14 customer sites throughout Western and Southern Finland. The bond tap of EUR 29.5 million was successfully placed due to strong demand seen in the market. After the bond tap issue the total outstanding senior bonds amounts to EUR 92.0 million. The bonds mature in February 2023 and are issued with security in shares of the issuer and certain subsidiaries. The bonds will be listed on NASDAQ Stockholm before mid-February 2019. The net proceeds from the issues will be used for the acquisition of Sataservice.
– The refinancing of Quant in February 2018 provided a good structure to grow our business through the acquisition of Sataservice, who’s culture of high customer focus and operational execution is a perfect match for Quant’s culture. The acquisition is further strengthening our strong Nordic presence and the completion of the bond issue demonstrates that the bond market views our progress favorably, says Olof Sand, President and CEO of Quant AB (publ).
Pareto Securities AS has acted as sole bookrunner in connection with the issue of the bonds.
