Homburger advised LafargeHolcim Helvetia Finance Ltd on the issuance of CHF 200 m Subordinated Fixed Rate Resettable Notes guaranteed by LafargeHolcim Ltd

On December 7, 2018, LafargeHolcim Helvetia Finance Ltd issued CHF 200 m Subordinated Fixed Rate Resettable Notes (the Notes), guaranteed on a subordinated basis by LafargeHolcim Ltd. While the Notes are governed by English law, the guarantee thereof is governed by Swiss law.
