DLA Piper advises Rolta India on second high-yield bond offering
DLA Piper has advised long-term client Rolta India on a high-yield bond offering. The company raised $300m (£178m) in the international capital markets, issuing 8.875 per cent senior notes through its wholly owned subsidiary, Rolta Americas.
The offering was oversubscribed by more than eight times with an order book of more than $2.4bn and demand from a high-quality international investor base. Asia contributed 47 per cent of the demand, the US contributed 35 per cent and European investors contributed 18 per cent. The issuer of the bonds was a newly formed Delaware subsidiary of Rolta International, Rolta’s principal international operating company.
The team was led out of Hong Kong by Stephen Peepels, supported by Timothy Franklyn and Clark Chen.
Other team members included Chris Paci, Jason Harmon and Rajni Sekhri in the US, Martin Bartlam and Marcus Lovatt in the UK, Lex Oosterling and Fiorelo Klein in the Netherlands, Debbie Barbor and Tala Sara Eavis in the Middle East and Steve Weerts in the US for international and US tax issues.
