Advestra advises Lonza on the placement of bonds

In a resounding success, Lonza has secured its financial future by placing two tranches totaling CHF 400 million. The first tranche of CHF 185 million, featuring a 2.25% interest rate and maturing in 2028, was complemented by a second tranche of CHF 215 million, offering a 2.60% interest rate and maturing in 2031. This strategic move not only solidifies Lonza’s financial standing but also underscores investor confidence in the company’s growth prospects.

The orchestration of this financial feat was made possible through the collaboration of esteemed financial institutions. UBS Investment Bank, BNP Paribas (Suisse), and Commerzbank Aktiengesellschaft, acting as Managers, played instrumental roles in ensuring the success of this transaction. Lonza’s financial journey continues to thrive, setting the stage for future accomplishments and sustained growth.
