On 21.06.2018 Bulgarian Energy Holding EAD (BEH) placed its third Eurobond issue in the amount of EUR 400 million to be listed on the Irish Stock Exchange (trading as Euronext Dublin).
In the period 18th- 20th June representatives of the Company and the Ministry of Energy held intensive meetings with investors in London, Vienna, Frankfurt and Munich.
In the conditions of challenging financial markets BEH is the first corporate issuer in the market from the Central and Eastern Europe region since the beginning of May 2018. BEH successfully placed a bond issue in the amount of EUR 400 million at an annual interest rate of 3.5%. The interest rate achieved is the lowest one since the company has been participating in the international financial markets. BEH achieved a maturity of the Eurobond of 7 years, the longest attained so far. In this way the company will further spread its interest costs over a longer period of time.
The proceeds raised from the issuance will be used to refinance the Eurobond issued by BEH in 2013 which matures in November 2018.
