The Notes will be issued under SEEK's recently established Guaranteed Euro Medium Term Note Programme, and will be listed on the Singapore Stock Exchange. Settlement of the Notes is expected to occur on 28 April 2017 and is subject to customary closing conditions. The Notes will rank equally with SEEK's existing senior unsecured debt.
SEEK's CFO Geoff Roberts said "This represents SEEK's debut capital markets debt issuance. We were pleased with the strong support from investors which we believe is a recognition of SEEK's strong business model, growth prospects and robust cash generation. This note issue is consistent with our strategy to achieve diversity in SEEK's capital structure and extend the average tenor of debt."
