MILAN, April 7 Italian scooter maker Piaggio
said on Monday it offered holders of a 150 million euro
bond due in 2016 to exchange their notes at a price of 104.5
with a new seven-year bond to be issued at par for a total of
200 million euros ($274 mln).
Piaggio said bondholders willing to swap their notes had
until April 15 inclusive to notify the exchange agent.
The minimum coupon of the new issue will be announced on
April 14, it said. The 2016 bond pays a 7 percent coupon. The
new issue would be priced on April 16 after the company gives
details on how many bondholders have accepted the swap offer.
