Arion Bank has mandated Barclays as Structuring Advisor, and Barclays, Goldman Sachs International and Morgan Stanley as Joint Lead Managers for a USD-denominated Additional Tier 1 transaction. The notes will have a standalone and consolidated 5.125% CET1 trigger with equity conversion. The notes will be rated by S&P and the Bank expects the rating to be BB. A series of fixed income investor meetings will commence on Friday, 14 February. The transaction is expected to follow, subject to market conditions.
The AT1 instrument is eligible as Additional Tier 1 capital under the Icelandic Financial Undertakings Act No. 161/2002. The planned issue strengthens the Bank’s own funds and is a milestone towards reaching a more optimal capital structure in line with the Bank’s medium term targets.
