Veidekke ASA: Summons to bondholders' meeting – proposal for early redemption of outstanding bond loans

02.09.2020 - 08:49

Reference is made to the stock exchange release published 1 September 2020 regarding completion of the sale of Veidekke's property development operations in Norway and Sweden.

With the sale completed, Veidekke is now a streamlined construction company, with strong market positions in Scandinavia. The new strategic direction entails changes in the group’s financial needs.

To meet the property development operations' permanent financing requirements, the group raised two bond loans totalling NOK 1.6 billion during spring 2018. As a streamlined construction group, Veidekke’s financing requirements will fluctuate more. Veidekke therefore proposes to the bondholders that the two loans be redeemed early.

Attached is the summons of the bondholders' meeting, including further information and the background for this proposal. The bondholders' meeting will be held 16 September 2020.
