ViaCon Group Bonds

NOT FOR DISTRIBUTION, DIRECTLY OR INDIRECTLY, IN OR INTO THE UNITED STATES OR TO U.S. PERSONS OR IN OR INTO ANY OTHER JURISDICTION WHERE THE DISTRIBUTION OF THIS PRESS RELEASE WOULD BE UNLAWFUL.

ViaCon Group AB (publ) (the “Company”) has successfully raised senior secured bonds in the amount of EUR 100,000,000 due 2025 (ISIN: SE0016844617). The interest rate for the new bond loan was set at EURIBOR 3M + 6.25 per cent. The Company is intending to use the net proceeds from the bond issue to repay existing debt, for general corporate and working capital purposes and to make a distribution to its shareholders. The bond issue represents the last step in completing the separation of ViaCon from the Saferoad Group, a process which was initiated and has been ongoing strategically, operationally and financially since 2019.

Stefan Nordström, CEO of ViaCon: “Since joining ViaCon as CEO in 2019, we have strengthened the management team and reorganized the business from 30+ legal entities into three (3) core Business Units, each with its own leadership and strategy. We have shifted focus from lower margin traded products to focus solely on our higher margin engineered products. In addition, we have made value accretive strategic acquisitions, thereby strengthening our market position in Western Europe, a key and growing market for ViaCon. The bond issue and related refinancing is a great milestone for ViaCon, enabling us to complete the separation from the Saferoad Group and to continue to our growth journey as an independent Company.”

“The trust instilled in ViaCon by leading bond investors is a great testament to ViaCon’s strong platform and unique offering to customers” says Helena Wennerström, CFO of ViaCon.

The issue date is expected to be 4 November 2021 and the Bonds are expected to be listed on Nasdaq Stockholm during H1 2022.

Carnegie Investment Bank AB (publ) and DNB Markets, a part of DNB Bank ASA, acted as coordinators and joint bookrunners in connection with the transaction.
