Northern Horizon Capital AS (the Management Company) informs of the plan to organize an issue of unsecured bonds of Baltic Horizon Fund (the Fund) in the aggregate nominal value of up to EUR 30 million. Pricing and other material conditions of the issue are expected to be agreed upon during April and May. The private placement is intended to be aimed at institutional investors in selected European countries with minimum investment of EUR 100,000. The net proceeds from the issuance of the bonds are expected to be used mainly for refinancing a portion of existing bank loans in order to minimize bank loan amortization payments but also for investment activities within the Fund.
After successful closing of the private placement, the Management Company intends to apply for listing of the bonds on Nasdaq Tallinn and for that purpose apply for the registering of a listing prospectus with the Estonian Financial Supervisory Authority.
