BKW réussit à placer un emprunt convertible d'un montant de CHF 163 millions

Bern (ots) - BKW SA («BKW») a placé aujourd'hui avec succès un emprunt convertible senior, non garanti, d'un montant de CHF 163 375 000 arrivant à échéance en 2020 («emprunt convertible»).

L'emprunt sera convertible en 4,2 millions d'actions nominatives BKW («actions»), ce qui correspond à 8,0% du capital-actions actuellement coté en bourse. Les actions qui seront remises lors de la conversion sont garanties par les actions propres de BKW. En raison de la forte demande de la part d'investisseurs institutionnels suisses et internationaux, le livre d'ordres a été souscrit à plusieurs reprises.

L'emprunt convertible offre un coupon de 0,125%. Le prix de conversion se monte à CHF 38.90, ce qui correspond à une prime de conversion de 22,5%. Le prix d'émission de l'emprunt convertible correspond à 100% de la valeur nominale. L'emprunt convertible arrivera à échéance le 30 septembre 2020 à 100% de sa valeur nominale, pour autant qu'il n'ait été préalablement racheté, converti ou annulé.

L'émission de cet emprunt contribue à renforcer d'avantage la solide structure financière de BKW en offrant la possibilité de monétiser ses actions propres. Son produit sera affecté aux activités générales de la société.

BKW va présenter une demande à la SIX Swiss Exchange pour obtenir l'admission des emprunts à la cotation et au négoce avec une admission au négoce provisoire attendue le (ou autour du) 29 septembre 2014. Le paiement et la remise de l'emprunt convertible sont prévus pour le (ou autour du) 30 septembre 2014.

E.ON a également réussi à placer aujourd'hui un emprunt échangeable en actions BKW d'un montant de 113 millions d'euros d'une maturité de quatre ans.
