Lassila & Tikanoja plc issues EUR 75 million sustainability-linked notes due 2028

Lassila & Tikanoja plc (the “Company”) issues senior unsecured sustainability-linked notes in the amount of EUR 75 million (the “New Notes”). The New Notes will mature on 19 May 2028, bear a fixed annual interest at the rate of 3.375 per cent and have an issue price of 99.882 per cent.

“Lassila & Tikanoja is proud to be among the first Finnish listed companies to issue sustainability-linked notes. Our mission is to make circular economy a reality and sustainability is at the very heart of our strategy. The demand for the notes has been strong in the Nordics. These notes extend the average maturity of our bond portfolio and provide an incentive towards reaching our ambitious sustainability targets” says the Company’s CFO Valtteri Palin.

An application will be made for the New Notes to be listed on Nasdaq Helsinki Ltd. The funds from the issue of the New Notes will be used for the partial repurchasing of the Company’s outstanding EUR 50 million notes due 2023 and for general corporate purposes.

Danske Bank A/S acts as the Sole Lead Manager for the issue of the New Notes and as the Sole Sustainability Structuring Advisor on the establishment of the Company's sustainability‑linked bond framework assessed by the second-party opinion provider Sustainalytics.
