CMS Bureau Francis Lefebvre advised the Brest-based Omnium Group in relation to refinancing of its bank debt. The group agreed a syndicated loan for 110 million euros with a banking pool led by the two arrangers, LCL and ARKEA Banque Entreprises & Institutionnels.
The group also took advantage of the opportunity to strengthen its equity by issuing convertible bonds for an amount of 10 million euros, subscribed by Crédit Agricole CIB. This financing will give the group the resources to establish the foundations of its Burton of London, Devred 1902 and Eurodif brands between now and 2020.
The Omnium group was advised by CMS Bureau Francis Lefebvre, with Grégory Benteux (partner), Alexandre Bordenave and Alexandre Chazot for financing aspects and Christophe Lefaillet (partner), Cécile Sommelet (counsel) and Romain Boyet for corporate aspects.
The banks were advised by De Pardieu Brocas Maffei, with Christophe Gaillard (partner), Sébastien Boullier de Branche (counsel) and Camille Mercier. Crédit Agricole CIB, the subscriber of the convertible bonds issued by the group, was advised by Norton Rose Fulbright, with Roberto Cristofolini (partner) and Aurélie Pélisson
