VINCI has successfully issued a US$ 1 billion bond, maturing in April 2029 and carrying an annual coupon of 3.750%.
Following the inaugural £800 million bond issue realized last March 8th, this first issue in US$ enables VINCI to further diversify its sources of funding and its bond investor base, by accessing the American bond market. Moreover, it enables the Group to continue extending its average maturity in a well-oriented market environment.
The proceeds will be used for the general corporate purposes of VINCI.
This bond issue was carried out by way of a private placement reserved for institutional investors only (including qualified institutional buyers in the United States).
