ARS Tech issues 10 million euro mini-bonds with Riello Investimenti SGR and Sella

ARS Tech is an Abruzzo-based company, international recognised for its advanced production technologies in carbon fiber composite material components for the motor-sport sector as well as for hyper-cars and supercars. ARS Tech has issued a 10 million euro mini-bond to support the development of its industrial plan, with a particular focus on energy efficiency and the circular economy. Sella, through its Corporate & Investment Banking division, assisted ARS Tech as arranger of the transaction and exclusive financial advisor to the issuer. Riello Investimenti Partners SGR acted as anchor investor, subscribing 7 million euro, while Banca Sella subscribed 2 million euro and Sella Sgr 1 million euro. The Chiomenti law firm acted as deal legal counsel.
The main purpose of the bond investment, which will last for 7 years, is to increase the level of efficiency, capacity, sustainability and profitability of production, while improving the performance of the products manufactured and expanding the customer portfolio. Particular resources will be destined to the “New Green Deal” project, which aims to improve and make the company’s production system more efficient with the development of specific raw materials, which appear to be more functional to a range of transformation processes, to increase in-house production, implement an innovative and unique process in the current international market of carbon fiber components, as well as to introduce a raw material recovery process with a view to a transition economy with more sustainable products.
“We are extremely proud to issue our first mini-bond and even more for the participation of such companies” says Carlo Balucani, Sole Director of ARS Tech. “The funds will be used to support the implementation of our 20 million euro industrial plan which will concern the expansion of the Controguerra plant, whose area will be enlarged from 16,000 m2 to 26,000 m2, with the introduction of over 200 new additional resources compared to a total amount of 305 in 2022. This operation will allow us to industrialise innovative and patented production processes to create, for example, an entire carbon fiber chassis for a car without joints, reducing weight and improving safety. These processes will be based on the enhancement of the internal circular economy and on energy saving, while providing our customers with Industry-standard, highly performing and environmentally friendly components”.

“Corporate finance, with its tools such as mini-bonds, allows companies to access new financing solutions to support their strategic development projects – says Graziano Novello, Head of Private Debt of the Corporate & Investment Banking division of the Sella group – Being able to support a qualified company recognized throughout the world for its products and expertise such as ARS Tech is a source of inspiration for us, confirming our activity oriented towards specialized consultancy to provide innovative tools to those companies that focus on growth, also from a sustainable point of view, in order to compete and enter an international market”.

“We are always deeply impressed when we find excellent companies in some Italian provinces able to collaborate with the world’s top players, proposing and developing cutting-edge engineering and production solutions – underlines Alberto Lampertico, Investment Director Private Debt of Riello Investimenti Partners SGR – A.R.S. means Advanced Reinforced Structures, i.e. what the company produces, but also Ars, art in Latin, i.e. the genius and creativity, typical of the Italian culture and of our SMEs. TECH is the technology that the company is able to make the most of and which allows the whole team to stand out in the world, operating in a niche, bringing innovation and investing in the future through a circular economy.”
