Cham, 16. October 2019, Selecta Group B.V. (“Selecta”) today announced that it has successfully priced its previously announced offering of €150,000,000 aggregate principal amount of senior secured notes (the “Notes”).

The Notes will be issued under the indenture (the “Indenture”) governing Selecta’s outstanding euro-denominated 57 /8% senior secured notes due 2024 and euro-denominated senior secured floating rate notes due 2024 (the “Existing Notes”), and will form a single series with the applicable series of Existing Notes for all purposes under the Indenture.
