Coming after several years of inactivity on the capital market, Swissgrid placed another bond issue on the capital market on 2 September 2019. This CHF 125 million issue has a coupon of 0.05 per cent and a maturity of 30 ¾ years. The bond offering is listed on the SIX Swiss Exchange.
The proceeds from this bond offering will be utilised to partially refinance convertible loans granted to the company by Swissgrid shareholders in connection with transfer of the grid and to partially refinance the bond issue maturing in January 2020. The bond issue rounds out the Swissgrid maturity profile.
Swissgrid will conduct further activities on the capital market as necessary to ensure grid security over the long term in fulfilment of its mandate.
