BME's Fixed Income Market, MARF, today admitted Holaluz-Clidom’s first Green Commercial Paper (CP) Programme for 100 million euros. This programme will allow Holaluz to access qualified investors flexibly over the next twelve months and diversify its financing sources by issuing CP issues.
Holaluz has structured the CPs to be issued under the Green Note Programme to qualify as a "green instrument" under the Holaluz Green Finance Framework, under which the company can issue bonds and notes in accordance with the Green Bond Principles 2021 and enter into financing contracts in accordance with the Green Loan Principles 2021 of the International Capital Markets Association ("ICMA"). To this end, Holaluz has obtained a favourable opinion from Sustainalytics confirming that the Holaluz Green Finance Framework is aligned with the four fundamental principles that make up both principles.
Banco Santander is the Lead Arranger of the Programme and Banco Santander itself, Banco Sabadell, Bestinver and Norbolsa are participating as Collaborating Entities. Deloitte Financial Advisory will be Holaluz's Registered Advisor in the MARF. Uría Menéndez Abogados has provided legal advice to the issuer on the incorporation of the Programme.
Holaluz has a BB credit rating, with stable trend, by EthiFinance Ratings.
