Carrier completes its first euro-bond transaction
Norwegian announced this morning that it had successfully completed a new unsecured bond issue of €125 million with a four-year tenor. The proceeds will go towards supporting the company’s future growth.
Earlier this year Norwegian issued a similar-sized three-year bond in Norwegian kronor. The bond was issued with a coupon rate at 7.25% semi-annual interest payments.
The airline said that the net proceeds from the bonds would be “employed for general corporate purposes and to support the future growth of the group”. In October, Norwegian signed an order with Boeing to buy 19 Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner aircraft, scheduled for delivery between 2017 and 2020.
“We are very pleased to have completed our first bond issue in euro”, said CFO Frode Foss. “With this transaction we have broadened our base of bondholders from the Scandinavian market to the international market. Norwegian continues to attract financing utilising different sources of funding of the group and future growth.”
