Couche-Tard prices $1 bln debt offering, including inaugural green bonds

- Canadian convenience store operator Alimentation Couche-Tard Inc ATDb.TO said on Monday that it has priced a $1 billion debt offering, including inaugural green bonds.

Green bonds are a category of fixed-income securities that raise capital for projects with environmental benefits, such as renewable energy or low-carbon transport.

The private debt offering included a $350 million aggregate principal amount of 3.625% senior unsecured notes due 2051, referred to by the company as the green bonds.

The statement from Couche-Tard did not disclose further pricing details of the overall bond sale.

In March, the Canadian company reported a 20.8% fall in quarterly revenue to $13.16 billion. nL4N2LF4FZ
