We have seen an increasing number of corporates across Europe accessing the debt capital markets through the issuance of deeply subordinated capital securities, commonly referred to as ‘hybrids’.
This type of debt is commonly assigned equity credit by the rating agencies so could benefit a corporate with significant outstanding debt.
We have been involved in many leading corporate hybrid issuances, so have become adept at helping clients overcome the challenges posed by the often competing demands of the market, tax considerations and ratings agencies.
