Facilitating urban transformation
Acting as mandated lead arranger, bookrunner, bond coordinator and hedging bank, Natixis arranged a total of €580m of financing for line 5 of the Milan metro in 2015.
Line 5 is the Milan metro’s first automatic line. Around 13km long and fully-underground, the line serves 130,000 passengers a day and 19 stations as it crosses the city for a total investment of €1.6bn. Natixis previously helped finance line 4 of the Milan metro in 2014. This new project underscores the relations of confidence and trust forged over the years with the institutions driving the project.
Natixis participated in five large projects in 2015 singled out at the PFI Awards event held in London in February 2016. The Milan Metro 5 financing was awarded European Transport Deal of the Year.
