Eurofins Scientific (ERF FP, unrated), the global leader in bioanalytical testing, announces that it has successfully raised EUR 500m in its latest senior unsecured Euro bond public issuance. The bonds have a 7.5-year maturity (due 30 January 2023) and will bear an annual rate of 3.375% (ACT/ACT). The issue was more than 2x times over-subscribed.

Eurofins intends to use the proceeds of the issuance for general corporate purposes, including refinancing some of its existing debt instruments, as well as to fund any further growth opportunity in-line with the Group's strategy and objectives. The new bond further improves Eurofins' liquidity position by lengthening its debt maturity profile.

Comment from Dr. Gilles Martin, Eurofins CEO:"I am pleased with the result of our latest public bond issuance. In light of the market volatility due to the developments in certain geographies, specifically in Greece and China, we have decided to further optimize our funding position to lengthen our financing maturity, to secure the refinancing of our instruments coming due in the next couple of years, and more generally to secure our ability to respond to compelling opportunities while maintaining a strong balance sheet structure."

BNP Paribas, HSBC and SG CIB acted as joint bookrunners for the transaction.

The bonds will be listed from their issue date (30 July 2015) on the regulated market of the Luxembourg stock exchange (ISIN XS1268496640). The bonds are not registered under the US Securities Act of 1933 as amended (the "Securities Act"), and may not be offered or sold in the United States (as such term is defined in Regulation S under the Securities Act) unless registered under the Securities Act or pursuant to an exemption from such registration.
