Bezons, June 30, 2015
Atos, an international leader in digital services, today announces the successful placement of its first bond issue on June 26, 2015.
This bond issue totals € 600 million, with a 5-year maturity. The coupon rate is 2.375%. Atos and the bonds are unrated.
The bond issue has been significantly oversubscribed by a large and diversified European investor base, which allowed Atos to increase the size of the issue from € 500 million to € 600 million. The book was closed on Friday June 26, 2015 at 1:30 pm CET.
This first landmark transaction, which confirms investors' confidence in the Group's strategy, allows Atos to diversify its financing sources in line with its 3-year plan 2014-2016, while benefiting from long-term resources at an attractive cost.
