Transaction overview

  • Mirabaud was tasked with attracting financiers from institutional investors for the refinancing of the Desagri power plant.
  • The objective was ultimately to refinance Desagri’s power plant with new money, allowing shareholders to make a fund distribution to the HoldCo. in order to facilitate the funding of new power projects.
  • Grupo Jorge closed the issuance of this first Project Bond for an amount of €20m. The bond was issued for a period of 22 years having a fixed coupon of 3.7%
  • Listed in Freiverkehr (the non-regulated Frankfort Stock Exchange market), the transaction was executed with international private investors in a timeframe of just one and a half months.

We are very happy to have assisted Grupo Jorge in refinancing part of its assets through a Project Bond under very good conditions. In addition, generating the ability to benefit from significant cash out through a dividend payment. Project bonds are a very interesting financing tool and thanks to our extensive experience with a broad range of clients, we have a high level of expertise in this area.

Mirabaud contribution and added value

  • The way in which Mirabaud structured the transaction allowed Grupo Jorge to refinance Desagri on very attractive terms, taking advantage of the good timing in debt markets
  • Project Bonds offer higher flexibility in financing terms and conditions, allowing longer financing periods (>20 years), a higher degree of leverage, recurring generation of cash for shareholders, and a diversified investor base. This, in turn, facilitated the entrance of institutional investors in the capital structure of the Company
  • This transaction reinforces Mirabaud’s status as the advisor of choice in the issue of Project Bonds with institutional investors
