How it works

With the Convertible Subordinated Bond instrument, with a duration of 5 years for listed companies and 6 years for unlisted companies, we can support the financing needs of your company with its medium-long term development plans.

Financial terms and conditions:

Listed companies: EURIBOR 1Y +

  • 2.50% (1st year)
  • 3.00% (2nd-3rd year)
  • 4.20% (4th-5th year)

Unlisted companies: EURIBOR 1Y +

  • 2.50% (1st year)
  • 3.15% (2nd-3rd year)
  • 4.20% (4th-5th year)
  • 5.00% (6th year)

The main features of the instrument are:

  • operational streamlining of concession procedures
  • flexible repayment plan, thanks to the absence of early repayment penalties
  • possibility to convert into capital on the basis of specific events
  • limited costs in managing the instrument

The amount of assistance must be at least €1 million and must not exceed 20% of outstanding shares; for unlisted companies, the maximum amount can be increased by a further 4.99% if there is a co-investor.

To benefit from the assistance, unlisted companies will have to provide a fair market value determined by one of CDP's valuation partners. You can apply through one of Qualified Independent Experts.

In any event, the maximum amount must not exceed that required to restore the company's capital structure to the situation prior to the Covid-19 pandemic, i.e. the situation on 31 December 2019.

The financial resources obtained must be used by your company to support working capital needs and/or investments, in line with a plan that takes into account EU and national objectives in relation to the green and digital transformation.

It will be possible to apply for this instrument until 31 December 2021, unless extended.
