Issuer need

The Group aimed to grow its current retail pharmacy portfolio by increasing both footfall and sales through the introduction of new and innovative product and service offerings, while it planned to expand its presence through further acquisitions of retail pharmacies. The Group aimed to acquire two additional pharmacy licenses, while it aimed to conduct extensive refurbishment on both properties. At the same time, it sought to invest further in health-related equipment.

Solution

Calamatta Cuschieri structured a €137,000,000 Bond Issue for Brown’s Pharma Holdings p.l.c. to raise the necessary capital to finance its growth strategy. The proceeds also helped the Group fund other capital projects, carry out refurbishing works and rebranding under the Brown’s brand, as well as to refinance prior debt.
