Pareto Securities has advised Scandinavian Biogas Fuels International AB
(“Scandinavian Biogas
”), one of Sweden’s largest private producers of biogas with a strong presence
in the Stockholm area and 4 facilities in operation, on their successful
placement of a four-year SEK 200 million senior secured bond. The proceeds
from the bond issue will be allocated towards partial financing of a new
biogas production facility in Skogn, Norway (Biokraft AS), partial
refinancing of outstanding debt, to finance an investment and optimisation
programme to enhance the group’s production capacity and profitability, as
well as to facilitate Scandinavian Biogas’ continued expansion in the
Nordics.

The bonds, maturing in February 2020, will bear a floating coupon of 3 months
Stibor + 9.75% (paid quarterly) and the terms include an equity interest rate
adjustment effectively reducing the coupon following one or more equity
injections. Listing of the bonds on Nasdaq Stockholm is intended to take
place within 30 days of settlement.

The transaction was successfully placed among predominantly Swedish investors
with additional participation from other Nordic countries as well as
significant demand from continental Europe. Altogether, approximately 40
investors participated in the issue.

“We are pleased to secure financing for Scandinavian Biogas’ strategically
important expansion into the Norwegian market and to support continued growth
in our core markets. Our strategy is to continue to build from our dominant
position in Sweden, proceeding from our in-house developed HOLD-Technology™
which makes us a leading force in efficient biogas production. By securing
the financing for the continued investment programme and the planned
expansion into Norway, Scandinavian Biogas is now executing on its growth
strategy aiming to deliver 1 TWh biogas energy on the market by 2020
” says Matti Vikkula, CEO of Scandinavian Biogas.
