Walder Wyss advises Groupe E on its Swiss bond transaction

Walder Wyss has adviced Groupe E on its Swiss bond transaction. Founded in 1968, the Swiss electricity producer and distributor, has successfully placed its inaugural Swiss bond transaction with a volume of CHF 220m. The bonds have been issued under a CHF 120m 5 years tranche with a fixed coupon of 1.95% and a CHF 100m 10 years tranche with a fixed coupon of 2.55%. The bonds will be listed on the SIX Swiss Exchange. This transaction will support Groupe E’s investment strategy for purposes of the energy transition.

Groupe E, a renowed Swiss energy supplier, taps the capital market for the first time in its history to finance its ambitious investment program. The capital raised will enable the Group to increase its contribution to the energy transition, particularly in the areas of district heating, hydropower and solar energy.

Walder Wyss has advised Groupe E on this transaction. The team included Lukas Wyss (partner, debt capital markets, pictured), Valentin Wiesner (managing associate, debt capital markets) and Rahel Steiner (trainee, debt capital markets).
