BANKIA PROVIDES COMPANIES WITH SYNDICATED AND STRUCTURED FINANCE THROUGH ISSUES OF BONDS TARGETED AT INSTITUTIONAL INVESTORS.

Through the Capital Markets Directorate, Bankia provides business customers with a range of services, including syndicated and structured lending, access to financing other than bank loans through the issuance of bonds (government or corporate bonds) targeted at national and international institutional investors, interest and exchange rate hedging services, and financial advisory services aimed at improving companies’ financial structure and competitive positioning (e.g., advising in mergers and acquisitions).

In 2018, once the restrictions imposed on its business activity during the recapitalisation plan had been removed, the bank re-entered the business of long-term lending to large corporations with access to capital markets, in Spain and abroad, as well as project and acquisition finance.

THE BANK PLANS TO CAPITALISE ON ITS ABILITIES TO ATTRACT INVESTORS INTERESTED IN FINANCING SPANISH COMPANIES

The bank took part in more than 100 syndicated loan operations during the year. Specifically, in the field of project finance it once again played a leading role in renewable energy finance, taking part in the structuring and financing of one of Europe’s largest solar photovoltaic plants, located in the southeast of Spain.

As regards helping companies gain access to non-bank finance, during 2018 the bank reinforced its role as an originator and structurer of bond issues, focusing on the middle market. It also continued to act as a market maker for government debt, supporting the Spanish Treasury in its funding strategy.

In acquisition finance, Bankia led the structuring and underwriting of 15 deals during the year, with a focus on medium-sized companies, thus positioning itself as the financial institution of choice for the provision of banking services to these customers.

In mergers and acquisitions, it maintained its positioning in the renewable energy and solar photovoltaic sectors, as well as in other industries such as road transport and services for the elderly.

Following the effort of adaptation made in 2018, during 2019 the bank plans to capitalise on its origination and structuring capabilities and its penetration among Spanish companies to offer origination and structuring services to domestic customers and international customers interested in participating in the financing of Spanish businesses.
