VINCI announces the successful placement by Autoroutes du Sud de la France (ASF) of a €700 million bond issue maturing in January 2023, with an annual coupon of 2.875%.
The issue, which was completed as part of ASF’s EMTN programme, was very well received by investors (being more than 6 times oversubscribed by nearly 300 subscribers), thus confirming their confidence in the company’s credit quality, rated BBB+ by Standard & Poor’s and Baa1 by Moody’s, with a stable outlook.

The lead managers were BBVA, Barclays, ING, Mitsubishi UFJ Securities International, Société Générale Corporate and Investment Banking and UniCredit.
