Cuatrecasas advises Elecnor on registering its second sustainability-linked commercial paper program on MARF
Cuatrecasas has advised the Elecnor
Group on registering a multi-currency commercial paper program on the Spanish Alternative Fixed-Income Market (MARF)—with a maximum outstanding balance of €400 million—to finance its projects in the areas of engineering, infrastructure, new technologies and renewable energies in Spain and abroad.
The closing of the operation sees the launch in this market of the company’s second program linked to sustainability, which incorporates objectives related to the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions and the prevention of occupational risks which, if not met, imply a commitment of contributions to sustainable projects by Elecnor. This program will remain in force until June 2024 and will allow Elecnor to finance itself in euros or US dollars with terms of up to two years, through the issuance of commercial papers with a nominal value of €100,000 for institutional investors.
This new project will enable Elecnor to take an important step forward in its strategy of diversifying its sources of short- to medium-term working capital financing and optimizing financial costs.
The Cuatrecasas team handling this operation was led by Corporate and M&A lawyers Miguel Cruz
, Gonzalo Terceño and Matías Serrano.
