Yorkshire Water ground breaking £160m index-linked swap restructuring
Centrus provided financial advice to Yorkshire Water Services covering the strategy and financial policy, the economic evaluation of the proposal, changes to the whole business securitisation financing platform documentation, the choice and implementation of the preferred solution and the detailed documentation phases.
The re-structuring centred on the removal of mandatory breaks and involved the combined use of institutional investor demand for swap-backed assets and bank balance sheets.
