Africa Finance Corporation (AFC), an infrastructure solutions provider in Africa, has decided to finance Aker Energy’s deepwater project located offshore Ghana by investing in $100 million of convertible bond notes with a commitment to participate in follow on fund raising activities.

Aker Energy said last week it had issued subordinated convertible bonds to AFC of $100 million. The bonds have a coupon of 5.5 per cent per year and will be converted to equity in the event of an Initial Public Offering (IPO) of Aker Energy, at an agreed discount to an IPO offering price of 1.85 per cent per year. The bonds have a maturity of five years, with an option to extend with another three years.

 

AFC explained that this investment was in line with its overall natural resources strategy, which entails building a portfolio of value added assets across the energy value chain.
