INVESTOR AB (publ) intends to invite noteholders of its outstanding EUR 600,000,000 4.875 per cent. notes due 2021 (ISIN: XS0466670345) (the “Notes”) to tender any and all of their Notes for purchase for cash (the “Offer”). The intended purchase price is expected to include a customary premium.
In conjunction with the Offer, Investor AB is considering a potential issue of new notes, subject to market conditions, under its EUR 5,000,000,000 Debt Issuance Programme.
Part of the proceeds from the new issue will be used for purchasing the Notes. The rationale of the Offer and the new issue is thus to proactively manage upcoming debt repayments and to extend the average debt maturity profile of Investor AB. Notes repurchased pursuant to the Offer will be cancelled and will not be re-issued or re-sold.
Please note that further information, which among other things will set out certain important restrictions, regarding the intended Offer is expected to be made available shortly and will be found on: http://www.londonstockexchange.com/exchange/news/market-news/market-news-home.html
