Enerjisa and Ak Yatırım Collaborate to Complete Turkey’s Largest Ever Corporate Bond Issue.
Enerjisa’s CEO Kıvanç Zaimler and Ak Yatırım’s General Manager Mert Erdoğmuş highlighted how with Ak Yatırım’s consultancy they were able to complete the market’s largest ever corporate bond issue, stating that this large issuance has created new resources through which Enerjisa can finance its investment program.
On March 2, 2017, Enerjisa Elektrik Dağıtım A.Ş.(EEDAŞ) , which has three electricity distribution and three retail sales companies under its umbrella, completed Turkey’s largest ever corporate debt instrument issuance. This four-year CPI linked bond issue to the amount of 405 million Turkish lira aims to create further resources to finance our investment program. Speaking about how twice the amount of requests projected were collected on March 1, Enerjisa’s CEO, Kıvanç Zaimler, drew attention to the energy sector’s dynamic structure; “We need to increase the sector’s investment portfolio and bring a bit more transparency to the sector. In order to do this, firstly we need to protect our strong financing structure and our transparency and continue being a company that looks securely into the future. With our experience we are constantly contributing to the sector’s development, playing an important role in bringing it up to corporate standards. As a company we continue to make investments by uniting people focused services with our technical infrastructure. And we will continue to invest in sustainable energy. Following the two bond issues we conducted in the second half of last year, as another first for Turkey this issuance has provided us with additional financing both for our new investments and refinancing existing loans.” He also remarked that this success underlines our ambition to target even more issuances in the future..
Meanwhile, Ak Yatırım’s General Manager Mert Erdoğmuş said the following; “Every issuance we brokered in 2016 had its own particularities, contributing value to the sector. In 2017, we will continue to brokerage groundbreaking issues. We take justified pride in the fact that our country’s leading electricity supplier and key retail sales sector player Enerjisa has successfully completed Turkey’s largest ever non-financial bond issue. The total issuance of this four-year CPI linked bond was twice what was projected on the market. Investments in roadshow meetings covering an extensive area played an important role in ensuring a large audience of investors was reached. We think that we have made a very significant contribution to the capital markets with our consulting services for and mediation of Turkey's largest ever non-financial private sector debt instrument issued, totaling 405 million lira, issued according to great demand by investors. As a result of this issuance, as Ak Yatırım we have further strengthened our position as the leading bond issuer in the private sector.”
