- July 15, 2022, Ratingen, Germany -

German media title, Im Mittelstand, has shared news of All for One Group SE, a member of United VARs in Germany, successfully placing promissory note loans with sustainability components on the capital market. They report that the transaction was significantly oversubscribed and the originally planned placement volume was significantly increased from EUR 25 million to EUR 40 million. The funds give the leading consulting and IT group additional scope for further acquisitions and the expansion of the product portfolio.

The placement, arranged by Landesbank Baden-Württemberg and Helaba for a total of EUR 40 million, was marketed both in the traditional way and via the digital platforms of Debtvision and VC Trade so that the promissory note loans could be offered digitally to the investor base efficiently and transparently. With a total of 19 investors, a broad base of savings banks, cooperative banks, and commercial banks was taken into account in the allocation. The fixed interest rate of the tranches was placed at the lower end of the marketing range and corresponds to the good credit rating of All for One Group SE with terms of six and eight years.

Within a defined framework, an »ESG bridge« is agreed at the time of issue that two ESG indicators from the areas of environment, social affairs, and/or corporate governance will be defined by the end of 2023 and the corresponding target values for future test dates will be communicated. Failure to achieve these target values leads to an increase in the margin, and the company deliberately refrains from reducing the margin.

Summarizing the transaction, Stefan Land, CFO of All for One Group SE says “We focus on the topic of sustainability, but we also look inwards towards the market and customers. After all, it is digital technologies and processes that help anchor sustainable practices in the business areas. It is therefore only logical to firmly integrate the topic of ESG into our financing. The interest in the capital market was considerable and in these uncertain times, significant! In a challenging capital market environment, characterized by high inflation data, volatile interest rates, and great uncertainty as a result of the war in Ukraine, we have secured very favorable conditions.”
