The net proceeds from the planned issuance of the notes are intended to be used to refinance FDC’s existing indebtedness and to finance FDC’s investments in digitalization, renewable energy, water, desalination and wastewater, district cooling and other infrastructure projects.
FDC has mandated UBS AG Singapore Branch as Sole Global Coordinator, Joint Lead Manager and Joint Bookrunner and Standard Chartered Bank as Joint Lead Manager and Joint Bookrunner alongside UBS for the transaction.
