Moscow, Russia – February 16, 2017 - HMS Group (LSE: HMSG) announces today that it has successfully placed Rub 3 billion exchange bonds issue of JSC “Hydromashservice”, the main operational subsidiary of the Group.

Today HMS successfully came back to the public debt capital markets with Rub 3 billion 10.75 per cent coupon exchange bonds with a 3-year put option and 10-year maturity. It was the first HMS Group debt issuance since 2013.

The final book was more than 3.6 times oversubscribed with orders from about 40 investors. The demand for the issue mainly came from Russian banks, asset management and investment companies.
