The bonds bear interest at an annual rate equal to the 3-month EURIBOR +8.0%. The first tranche of bonds has a 5-year maturity, with interest-only payments for the first 15 months, and the second tranche of bonds has a 4-year maturity, with interest-only payments for 12 months. The issuance of the bonds is subject to certain financial covenants conditions included in the terms and conditions of the contract.
