The first annual meeting for EURO Private Placements (EURO PP) in France will take place in Paris on 13 March 2015. Stephenson Harwood Paris has been selected to participate at this first event and will host its own stand.
The French Ministry of Economy and the Banque de France EURO PP have promoted these financings to provide bond market access to listed and non-listed mid-cap companies. A working group comprising issuers, investors and other professionals, such as intermediaries and law firms, published a French EURO PP Charter providing guidelines and recommendations in March 2014. In January 2015 the working group then released a template of French law documentation, with the goal to offer a standardised contractual set answering the main needs of issuers and investors.
This first event is sponsored by all the French associations which have signed the EURO PP Charter (AF2i, AFG, AFTE, AMAFI, ASMEP ETI, CCIP IDF, FBF, FFSA, GEMA, MEDEF, Paris Europlace). All relevant information on EURO PP is now available in French and English on www.euro-privateplacement.com
