Offre au public d’obligations de HOMAIR VACANCES sur NYSE Alternext

Back

Paris – 3 May 2013 – NYSE Euronext (NYX) today announced a successful €15 million bond issue by HOMAIR VACANCES, one of Europe’s leading mobile home holiday rental specialists, on NYSE Alternext in Paris. It was the market’s first Initial Bond Offer (IBO) of 2013 and the largest transaction of its type since NYSE Euronext first introduced this innovative instrument, which allows SMEs to raise both capital and visibility, in the second half of 2012.

Placement of HOMAIR VACANCES bonds took the same form as an IPO of shares, with admission to trading under a global offer that included a public offering in France open to individual investors and centralised by NYSE Euronext, and a global placement with institutional investors by Portzamparc, acting as lead manager and bookrunner.

Holders of HOMAIR VACANCES bonds, priced at a nominal of €100, will earn 6.5%* fixed interest a year for six years. Interest will be paid half-yearly each 7 May and 7 November, starting on 7 November 2013. The company’s healthy finances earned it a BBB- rating from independent rating agency Scope Credit Rating** on 28 March 2013***.

“We are delighted with the success of this Initial Bond Offering by HOMAIR VACANCES on NYSE Alternext,” said Marc Lefèvre, Head of European Business Development and Client Coverage, Listings Europe, NYSE Euronext. “NYSE Euronext is involved in many initiatives to optimise and promote new sources of finance, and the IBO—designed to channel domestic savings back into productive investment, and offer issuers a wide range of products—is one. By the end of the first half of 2013, we expect to see three more issues of this type on NYSE Alternext in Paris.”

Alain Calmé, Chairman and CEO of HOMAIR VACANCES, added: “I would like to thank all our investors, both institutional and individual, for the trust they demonstrated in taking part in this issue, and also thank the partners that have been with us all the way. The capital raised will allow us to accelerate our business development and pursue the strategy of profitable growth that we adopted several years ago. Today I am more confident than ever in the bright future ahead for HOMAIR VACANCES, and in our capacity to consolidate our position Europe-wide in the mobile home vacation market.”
