VIS Group announces the issue of exchange-traded bonds in the amount of up to 3 billion rubles

On March 9, VIS Group held a webinar at the Moscow Exchange dedicated to the issue of the holding's bonds in the second half of March. The event was attended by managers and portfolio managers of investment companies, traders, private investors, representatives of banks and other financial institutions.

VIS Group was represented by Sergey Romashov, Chairman of the Board of Directors of VIS Production Company, Natalia Reznichenko, CEO of VIS Capital LLC, and Dmitry Suvorov, Deputy CEO for Economics and Finance of VIS Group (JSC). The meeting was moderated by Natalia Vinogradova, Deputy Head of DCM at BCS Global Markets.

The group plans to raise up to 3 billion rubles for investments in public-private partnership (PPP) projects, as well as general corporate purposes. The main advantage of such projects is the guarantee of the return of investor funds by the state, protected by federal law.

“Business stability is ensured by VIS Group’s portfolio profile, which consists of 97% concessions and PPPs. The current portfolio guarantees us a return on investment, full capacity utilization, development of the construction division and a stable cash flow until 2047,” Sergey Romashov commented.

Natalia Reznichenko spoke about the risk management scheme adopted in all of the holding’s business units and its own system of templates and regulations that allow to quickly and efficiently structure high-quality investment projects and maintain a balance of risks between the regions and the investor. Separately, it was noted that the subjects of the Russian Federation with a high credit rating are public partners in the Group's projects – in almost 90% of cases their rating is at least “AA-”. The holding itself also has a confirmed high credit reliability rating from both leading Russian rating agencies ACRA and Expert RA - at A(RU) and ruA levels, respectively.

This will be the third issue of VIS Group’s exchange-traded bonds. The term of the planned placement is 3 years, the coupon period is 91 days. The issuer will traditionally be VIS Finance LLC, a company specially created to interact with the capital market. VIS Group has been present on this market since 2017. The holding was one of the first in the country to place bonds under a non-concession PPP project in the amount of RUB 4 billion. In 2020, the first issue of social bonds in Russia in the amount of 5.57 billion rubles was placed. In the same year, the Group registered a program of exchange-traded bonds in the amount of up to 30 billion rubles. The first two issues within its framework were successfully placed in 2020 and 2021 for a total of RUB 4.5 billion.

VIS Group plans to hold an additional webinar for investors on the website of one of the leading financial information agencies CBonds on March 16 at 11:30. You can register here: https://cbonds-congress.ru/events/996/conference/
