Raised US$500 Million in 5 hours
The issuance of US$500-m dual tranche convertible bonds maturing in June 2022, and the concurrent tender offer to repurchase the 2018 bonds, provided Implats with certainty regarding the refinancing of the 2018 Bonds and enabled them to extend their capital market funding by five years.
The additional amount raised over and above the refinancing requirement of the 2018 Bonds were used to enhance the short to medium term liquidity of Impala Platinum.
