On November 12, DBB Jack-Up Services A/S (“DBB Jack-Up”) successfully placed a EUR 100 million senior secured bond loan.

The bonds will be listed on Oslo Stock Exchange within one year from the issue date.

The transaction was well received by the market, as evidenced by a strong demand for the bonds from both Nordic and European investors. Altogether, over 50 investors, both institutional and private participated in the oversubscribed issue.

“We are very pleased to see the interest and support from both existing and new bond investors.
