On January 14, 2015 Sarens Finance Company NV, a direct subsidiary of Sarens Bestuur NV, successfully completed a €125m placement of Senior Notes.
The proceeds from the offering will be used to acquire assets currently held off balance sheet under operating leases and purchase options, to repay certain indebtedness and fund related transaction fees and expenses.
Accessing the Benelux and international bond markets was a logical step as Sarens continues to grow and expand its international presence. The ability to raise €125m at 5.125% provided Sarens with an optimal transaction size and interest rate that is fully complementary of its existing debt financings and will provide operational and financial flexibility going forward.
