Settlement of the transaction will take place on or around 23 November 2018.
The Bonds were placed in an accelerated bookbuilding only with institutional investors.
ADO Group LTD, the main shareholder of the Company, received an allocation in the accelerated bookbuilding reflecting pro rata its current shareholding in the Company.
Rabin Savion, CEO of ADO Properties was pleased with the outcome of the transaction, stating, "This successful placement opens another funding source for us and improves our debt maturity profile by refinancing short term liabilities."
The Company intends to use the net proceeds to repay existing short term debt, extend the Company's debt maturity profile as well as to strengthen the Company's liquidity position.
