Nyfosa AB (publ) (“Nyfosa” or “the Company”) has mandated Danske Bank and SEB as joint bookrunners to arrange a series of investor meetings commencing on April 22 in order to explore the possibility to issue a three year, green, senior unsecured floating rate bond (the “New Green Bonds”). Subject to market conditions, a capital markets transaction may follow. The proceeds from the potential transaction will be used in accordance with the newly established green finance framework and include financing or refinancing of green assets and investments to improve energy efficiency and for repurchasing of parts of the Company’s outstanding senior unsecured bond with maturity in May 2022 and ISIN SE0012569655 (“2019/2022 Bonds”).
The green finance framework is established in line with the International Capital Markets Association’s (ICMA) Green Bond Principles and has been evaluated by an independent third party, CICERO Shades of Green. The framework and related governing documents and reporting standards have received a “Medium Green” shading from CICERO Shades of Green.
