Ferratum Oyj: EUR 100 million unsecured bonds of Ferratum Capital Germany GmbH listed on Prime Standard of Frankfurt Stock Exchange

Helsinki, 9 November 2018 - Ferratum Oyj (ISIN: FI4000106299, WKN: A1W9NS) ("Ferratum" or the "Group") announces that the EUR 100 million of senior unsecured bonds with ISIN: SE0011167972  of Ferratum Capital Germany GmbH (a wholly owned subsidiary of the Group) have been listed on the Prime Standard of the Frankfurt Stock Exchange.

The EUR 100 million of senior unsecured bonds with a tap option of EUR 50 million have a coupon of 3 months Euribor plus 5.50 per cent p.a. and a tenor of four years, and are also listed on Nasdaq Stockholm with ISIN: SE0011167972.

Jorma Jokela, CEO of the Group commented:

"This is a new milestone for Ferratum, as a bond of this size enables us to list a fixed income instrument  for the first time on the Prime Standard of the Frankfurt Stock Exchange, alongside our equity shares.

Our core strategy of delivering sustainable, profitable growth depends on having the balance sheet strength to finance our operations and growth initiatives. The EUR 100 million bond has further strengthened our balance sheet and enabled us to refinance two earlier bonds totalling EUR 45 million on more favourable terms."
