In cooperation with Signet Bank, ESTO Holdings OÜ, a leading innovative payments technology company based in Estonia, announces the settlement of its senior-secured bonds in the amount of EUR 16 million with a maturity of three years.
The senior secured corporate bonds were issued with an annual interest rate of 9.00% and term until 2024. Bonds were issued in the form of a private placement to professional investors across the Baltic States and Europe. The proceeds will be used to refinance existing liabilities and for the business growth in Estonia.
The new bonds are expected to be included on the Alternative Market of the Nasdaq Baltic First North within 12 months upon settlement subject to regulatory approval.
We are very grateful for the trust investors expressed in ESTO subscribing to our first-time corporate bond. We are pleased and proud that investors invested in our company with exceptionally strong demand coming from the Baltic region, but also from beyond the borders. This marks another very important milestone in the young company’s history and secures stable financing for ESTO for the foreseeable future.
Mikk Metsa, Group CEO of ESTO
Signet Bank acted as lead arranger and sole bookrunner, Aalto Capital (Germany) as global coordinator and financial advisor to the Group.
We are pleased to help ESTO, an innovative fintech company, to enter the Baltic capital market. As a result of its first bond issue, professional investors from both the Baltic and other European countries have invested in the company, which is an important step for the company’s growth and name recognition. For Signet Bank, this was a new milestone, as this is the first arranged bond issue registered with the Nasdaq CSD Estonian Branch.
