Ferratum Oyj: Ferratum considers refinancing options for maturing bond

21 Nov 2016

Helsinki/Berlin, November 21, 2016 - Ferratum Oyj (ISIN: FI4000106299, WKN: A1W9NS), a pioneer in the field of financial technology and an international provider of mobile banking services, is currently evaluating  refinancing options for the EUR 20 million bond of Ferratum Bank Plc, the Maltese banking subsidiary of Ferratum Oyj, issued in 2015 which matures on January 21, 2017. Therefore, Ferratum has mandated Pareto Securities and ICF Bank to arrange European investor meetings and a new bond issue may follow, subject to market conditions.

Ferratum has continued its fast growth in 2016 and was able to achieve a steady increase of its credit portfolio quality. Ferratum's management sees excellent growth opportunities also for the upcoming years. Consequently, the volume of the potential bond issue could, subject to favorable market conditions, be larger than the bond maturing in January 2017 to support the further business expansion of Ferratum.

In total, the Ferratum Group currently has four bonds outstanding, which were issued by Ferratum Bank Plc, Ferratum Capital Germany and Ferratum Capital Poland, all subsidiaries of Ferratum Oyj, respectively. The rating of Ferratum Oyj, the guarantor of all existing bonds, was upgraded to BBB+ by Creditreform Rating AG in June 2016.
