Paris, December 18, 2012 – Today, Ubisoft placed €20 million worth of bonds with a six-year term and a 3.99% coupon. 

Commenting on the transaction, Alain Martinez, Ubisoft’s Chief Financial Officer stated: “This bond placement – which is the first of its kind for Ubisoft – gives us additional flexibility for our long-term financing, in excellent conditions. It also represents an interesting way of diversifying our financing sources in the context of a growing trend toward bank disintermediation. Lastly, the positive response to this placement clearly demonstrates the confidence that investors have in Ubisoft, and also reinforces our credibility as an issuer of long-term debt.”

The bonds were placed with a French institutional investor. They will be issued on December 19, 2012 and will be listed on NYSE Euronext Paris as from that date.
