DS NORDEN’s $100 Million Bond Offering

Moalem Weitemeyer assisted D/S NORDEN on the deal.

NORDEN successfully placed USD 100 million in senior unsecured bonds which will mature 28 June 2024. The bonds will pay a coupon of 3 months LIBOR + 4.75% per annum, with quarterly interest payments. The initial placement was made under a USD 150 million frame allowing for additional bonds to be issued.

The bond issue is part of NORDEN’s plan to diversify its funding. Net proceeds from the bond issue will be used for general corporate purposes, which includes, inter alia, funding of working capital related to growth and attractive business opportunities mainly within the dry cargo market.
