Capital Markets

With more than 3,100 listed issuers coming from 103 countries and 29,000 international bond issues listed - i.e. 42% of total international bonds listed on EU markets-, the Luxembourg Stock Exchange has earned its place on the capital markets landscape. Offering two alternatives, the main regulated market (the “Bourse de Luxembourg”) and a multilateral trading facility (the “Euro MTF”), Luxembourg has great options to offer issuers and market participants.

As a result of our extensive experience in advising clients in both equity and debt transactions, Bonn Steichen & Partners has become one of the “go-to firms” for capital markets matters. Investment banks, sovereign clients, issuers and underwriters rely on our highly qualified Capital Markets team to assist them in the most complex equity and debt securities offerings. As issuers, underwriters or in other roles, our clients had come to rely on our lawyers to play a decisive role by monitoring complex international transactions and helping them develop new products and structures.

In each case, we work closely with specialists from other teams, in particular Corporate, Mergers & Acquisitions and Tax to advise our clients in a rapid, comprehensive and consolidated manner.

Our services cover the full range of capital markets transactions, including:

  • debt-related capital markets through stand-alone bond issues (including Eurobonds), convertible bonds and exchangeable bonds, establishment and maintenance of debt issuance programmes and debt-related structured products;
  • equity-linked transactions such as initial public offerings, public offerings, rights issues, private placements, exchange offers and applications for listing and admission to trading on the Luxembourg Stock Exchange;
  • regulatory compliance including regulatory filings, disclosure of shareholdings and management transactions, ongoing reporting obligations and ad-hoc publicity (transparency requirements), executive compensation, insider trading and market abuse rules, tender offer obligations and general duties relating to stock exchange requirements;
  • listing and admission to trading of high-yield bonds.
