MUR 600m debt issuance for Bank One Ltd

We provide our clients, both local and international, with bespoke capital markets advice across a wide range of sectors. We help them develop and implement funding solutions to support acquisition, growth, recapitalisation, and restructuring or refinancing of existing debt.

PLEION Corporate Finance advised Bank One Limited on its maiden MUR 600m subordinated Tier 2 debt issuance. The transaction, which was Bank One’s first issuance in Mauritian Debt Capital Markets, involved advising management on the costs and benefits of bonds as compared to traditional bank funding, structuring the transaction from a legal perspective (aligning with BoM & Basel III guidelines), and speaking to investors about the investment opportunity to secure their interest. This transaction shows that PLEION Corporate Finance’s experienced team is well placed to help a first time issuer come to the market in a COVID-19 environment and issue a 10 year unsecured bond at very attractive rates for both the issuer and the investors.

Our expertise, market intelligence and an extensive network of investor relationships is built on a reputation of bringing good quality transactions to Mauritian Debt Capital Markets and looking after the interests of the issuer and the investor. If you would like to speak to a member of our team to see how we can help you, please contact us.
