  • Ingengico

    Repeat issuer and debutant launch convertible bonds

    Capital City | 23 June 2015

    Equity-linked investors in Europe are running the rule over a brace of new issues this morning. Ingenico Group’s seven-years bonds are the more eye-catching due to a €500m deal size, but the SFr150m issue by Swiss construction company Implenia is likely to offer better value.
