Colombian energy group Celsia raises US$50mn

Colombian power generation, transmission and distribution company Celsia has placed bonds for 243bn pesos (US$50mn).

Proceeds from the five-year bonds will be used to substitute financial liabilities and do not represent an increase in debt, the Grupo Argos-controlled operator said in a regulatory filing.

Celsia highlighted that the issue was carried out “within the framework of the strategy to optimize its capital structure and guarantee competitive financing conditions, increase the average life and the maturity profile of its financial debt.”

Banca de Inversión Bancolombia structured and coordinated the transaction and Valores Bancolombia was the placing agent.

In recent days, Celsia secured approval to proceed with a public issue of green bonds for up to 400bn pesos.

Fitch previously maintained Celsia’s ratings at ‘AAA(col)’ with a stable outlook based on the company’s business position and “robust and predictable” Ebitda.
