Syensqo successfully completes the placement of its inaugural US$ 1.2 billion USD-denominated bond offering 

Brussels, Belgium – June 4, 2024 - 19:15 CEST

Syensqo today announces that it has successfully closed a senior bond issuance for a nominal amount of US$ 1.2 billion across two tranches:

  • US$ 600 million bond, with a 5-year maturity and a 5.65% fixed coupon
  • US$ 600 million bond, with a 10-year maturity and a 5.85% fixed coupon

The rating for the bonds is BBB+ by S&P and Baa1 by Moody's.

The transaction was met with strong interest, with an orderbook more than 4x oversubscribed, exceeding US$ 5 billion, and participation from more than 125 institutional investors. 

Proceeds will be used for general corporate purposes, including the repayment of the bridge loan facility set up by Syensqo at the end of 2023 in relation to the demerger from Solvay.

Christopher Davis, Chief Financial Officer of Syensqo, commented: “The transaction is an outstanding achievement for Syensqo, establishing us as an issuer in the USD bond market and further strengthening our balanced financial profile.

The excellent demand from a wide range of quality international institutional investors is a testament to the capital markets’ confidence in Syensqo’s strong credit profile and growth strategy. This transaction also marks the final step of our capital structure implementation as a standalone company.”
