Avolon Holdings Limited (“Avolon”), the international aircraft leasing company, closed its inaugural US$500 million three year unsecured term loan facility. Natixis led the financing as joint mandated lead arranger, underwriter and bookrunner for the deal, along with Sumitomo Mitsui Trust Bank, Limited.
This transaction marks an important step in Avolon’s continued progress towards securing an Investment Grade ratings profile, as it further diversifies its sources of unsecured funding. It met very positive market reaction and was oversubscribed and upsized by over 60%.
Natixis is very proud to have supported its longstanding client in this inaugural transaction.
