Eurobond Issue results

HELLENIC PETROLEUM has successfully priced the issue of a 5-year, €325m Eurobond, with an annual fixed coupon of 5.25%. Total demand exceeded €1bn, signifying a 3 times over subscription of the issue, while international institutional and private investors exceeded 60% of total demand. The strong interest, demonstrated from both Greek and international investors, resulted to the completion of the book building process in a few hours, while the final yield, at 5.375% came significantly lower than initial price talk.

John Costopoulos, CEO of Hellenic Petroleum Group, commented:

“Following the recent issue of the USD bond, Hellenic Petroleum successfully returned to the capital markets, with the issuance of a 5-year, €325m Eurobond, reaffirming the confidence of international capital markets and private investors towards the company’s long term outlook.

The issue is an important step, in line with our financial strategy, towards diversifying funding mix, reducing interest cost, as well as extending the maturity profile of our loan portfolio, strengthening our balance sheet.”
