Homburger advises Roche on the issuance of EUR 1.5 bn Bonds

Roche Finance Europe has made a significant move by issuing EUR 1.5 billion in bonds guaranteed by Roche Holding. The joint lead managers for this groundbreaking transaction were Banco Santander, Barclays Bank, BNP Paribas, Deutsche Bank Aktiengesellschaft, and UniCredit Bank.

These bonds, with tranches of EUR 600 million due December 2027 and EUR 900 million due December 2036, will be listed on the SIX Swiss Exchange and traded on the Open Market (Freiverkehr) of the Frankfurt Stock Exchange. Governed by Swiss law, the documentation for this landmark deal was expertly handled by the legal team at Homburger. The team was led by partner Jürg Frick (financing and Investment Products, pictured) and supported by Eduard De Zordi and Daniel Hulmann (both capital markets).
