Auchan Group successfully launched on Wednesday, December 5, a 10-year € 750M bond issue at a historically low rate of 2.375%.Auchan thus took advantages of such low interest rates to secure the Group’s needs for cash and to refinance the acquisition of Real’s 91 hypermarkets and 13 schopping centres, whose agreement was signed on Friday, November 30, 2012.

This largely oversubscribed bond issue confirms the interest of investors for Auchan Group, 57% of this bond issue being placed to foreign investors.

Auchan therefore reinforces its financial strength thanks to a long and well spread in time bond schedule.
