Paris, May 02, 2013 – Today, Ubisoft placed a €40 million bond offering with a five-year maturity and a 3.038% coupon.
This bond placement is complementing the €20 million one launched in December 2012. It offers Ubisoft additional flexibility for its long-term financing, as well as an attractive way of diversifying its financing sources in the context of a growing trend toward bank disintermediation.
The bonds were placed with a French institutional investor. They will be issued on May 06, 2013 and will be listed on NYSE Euronext Paris as from that date.
The arrangers of the transaction were Crédit Agricole CIB and Société Générale CIB and their legal advisor Gide Loyrette Nouel.
