Frankfurt am Main, July 12th 2016
PwC Legal advised Bayerische Landesbank on issuing a promissory note loan of €250 million for the services company Edenred S.A. The loan was arranged by Bayerische Landesbank and Commerzbank AG. It was significantly oversubscribed.
The promissory note loans consist of five to seven year tranches (average maturity of 6.1 years) with fixed and floating interest rates. Average financing costs were 1.2%. Promissory note loans are increasingly used for company financing due to their tradability.
Edenred is a globally operating French company listed on the Euronext Paris stock exchange with 6,300 employees. The company offers prepaid corporate services such as prepaid cards and luncheon vouchers used for staff retention or as a sales tool.
