 East African Breweries plc (EABL) has today announced an interest payment of Sh673.8 million to bondholders of its Shs 11 billion medium-term corporate bond.

EABL said it will pay the interest on April 28, 2022, to bondholders on record as of April 13, 2022 in accordance with the terms and conditions of the company’s prospectus for the bond issue Programme.

The five-year, fixed-rate instrument was offered at an interest rate of 12.25 per cent payable semi-annually. The bond was issued in October 2021 and saw investors bid Sh37.9 billion in the issuing round, representing an oversubscription of 275 per cent and signaling renewed investor confidence in a previously troubled local bond market.

The bond proceeds have been instrumental in supporting our capacity expansion strategy and contributing to our overall performance. As we celebrate 100 years since this company was founded, we thank the investor community for continued trust and support to our business.”

 

The EABL Medium-Term Note was ranked among the top corporate deals transacted in Africa in 2021 by the Bond and Loans Awards. The Award recognises the most innovative and ground-breaking deals from sovereign, corporate and financial institution issuers and borrowers. It named the EABL bond the Local Currency Corporate Bond Deal of the Year.
