On October 18th, 2018, JCDecaux SA (Euronext Paris: DEC) successfully placed €300 million of 2-year floating rate notes, maturing in October 2020, at Euribor 3 month + 0.27% (coupon set at Euribor 3 month + 0.33%, floored at 0%; issuing price set at 100.122%). The notes have been subscribed more than 3 times and have been placed with European institutional investors of high quality. The transaction was arranged by BNP Paribas and Goldman Sachs International.

JCDecaux also implemented a NEU CP program (Negotiable European Commercial Paper, ex Billets de Trésorerie) for a maximum amount of €500 million, registered at the Banque de France on October 16th, 2018(1). This program enables the Group to diversify its funding sources and to benefit from an additional short term financing tool at competitive conditions. €310 million have already been issued under this program through the five following dealers: BNP Paribas, Crédit Agricole CIB, CIC, Natixis and Société Générale (the domiciliation agent being CACEIS Corporate Trust).

JCDecaux has also registered with the Banque de France a NEU MTN program (Negotiable European Medium Term Notes) for a maximum amount of €500 million, that may be used for future needs.

The proceeds of these new financing sources will be dedicated to the acquisition of APN Outdoor and for general corporate purposes. They complement the existing €750 million notes issued in June 2016, maturing in June 2023, and a committed revolving credit facility of €825 million, maturing in 2022, which is undrawn to date.

In the context of the implementation of these financings, David Bourg, Chief Financial & Administrative Officer of JCDecaux SA and member of the Executive Board, said: “The success of these issuances demonstrates once again the quality of our signature and our strong balance sheet.”
