9.6.2005: Meldung: Veolia Environnement SA: ? 600 million inflation-indexed bond issue

Veolia Environnement has completed the issuance of a 10-year bond indexed on European inflation for a total of 600 million euros. The yield to investors will be 1.79% + European inflation, i.e. 65 basis points above the French Treasury bond with the same maturity.

This inflation-linked bond is the first of its kind to be issued by a private-sector corporation in the euro zone.

“This transaction reflects Veolia Environnement’s policy of diversifying its sources of funding by addressing long-term bond investors and lengthening the average maturity of its debt. In this instance, the Group is taking advantage of a new financial product very well suited to the structure of its contracts, which provide for price reviews linked to inflation in certain cases,” stated J?r?me Contamine, Senior Executive Vice President of Veolia Environnement.
