EPIF successfully issues EUR 285,000,000 green Schuldschein

5. 3. 2024

EP Infrastructure, a.s. (“EPIF”) has raised EUR 285,000,000 through Schuldschein loan agreements under German law issued in line with EPIF’s green principles (so called “green Schuldschein”). Initially targeting a minimum volume of EUR 100 million, strong demand from the Schuldschein investor community led to an increase in the offering amount. The floating rate Schuldschein loan agreements have durations of three and five years, with corresponding margins of 2.50% p.a. and 2.90% p.a., respectively. COMMERZBANK AG acted as the arranger of the green Schuldschein.

EPIF will allocate the proceeds from the Schuldschein loan agreements in accordance with its Green Finance Framework established in August 2023*. Václav Paleček, EPIF’s Finance Director, stated: “We are delighted with the success of our inaugural green financing through the Schuldschein loans. The issuance was well received by the investors, reflecting the confidence they place in our underlying business. Thanks to resilience demonstrated by our uniquely diversified structure, following this issuance, EPIF parent company level has a liquidity position, represented by cash and available committed credit facilities, of approximately EUR 1.2 billion as of the date of this announcement.”
