EANS-Adhoc: SW Umwelttechnik pulls back planned bond

ad-hoc disclosure transmitted by euro adhoc with the aim of a Europe-wide distribution. The issuer is solely responsible for the content of this announcement.

  • Bond placement not possible to full extent
  • Planned investments have to be withdrawn
  • Market position in Romania will be pushed forward

The listed family company SW Umwelttechnik is pulling back the planned bond with a total volume of EUR 10 m. Due to the harsh market situation for smaller titles, SW Umwelttechnik was not able to place the bond to its full amount. Planned commitments were then not followed through as they were connected to a financing of the total announced volume.

The issuer is therefore pulling back the bond offering and will not carry out the intended increased expansion investments in Romania. SW Umwelttechnik will however still push forward the activities in Romania and will extend its already strong market position.

The infrastructure in Central- and South-eastern Europe - particularly in the areas of road construction, sewer networks and local supply systems - is in need of high investments. For example, only 20 % of wastewater is treated in Romania. With a realistic extension of the sewer networks of around 2 % per year, there will be a market demand for decades that can be served perfectly by SW Umwelttechnik products.
