EPIF successfully issues Schuldschein

24. 4. 2019

EP Infrastructure, a.s. (the “EPIF”) collected proceeds from an EUR 182,500,000 loan agreement issued under German law (so called “Schuldschein”). The transaction was launched with a volume of EUR 100 million, but given the strong demand by Schuldschein investor community, EPIF decided to increase the final size. The term of the floating rate Schuldschein loan agreements is five and seven years. COMMERZBANK AG and RAIFFEISEN BANK INTERNATIONAL AG acted as arrangers for the Schuldschein loan agreements. EPIF will use the proceeds from the Schuldschein loan agreements for its general corporate purposes. Gary Mazzotti, vice chairman of the board of directors of EPIF, stated: “We are delighted with the success of our inaugural Schuldshein loan, the issue was well received by the investor community. With the final size of EUR 182,500,000, it is one of the largest Schuldschein transactions recently placed by a CEE borrower, and continues to show the ability of EPIF to maintain and diversify its sources of finances across multiple tenors.
