Debt offerings decreased significantly in the airport industry in H2 2021

Debt offerings in the airport equipment supply, product and services sector have seen a decrease of 48.1% from H2 2020 to H2 2021, an analysis of GlobalData's deals database reveals.

By Data Journalism Team

In the second half of 2021 the number of debt offerings decreased significantly by 48.1% from the same period in 2020.

This marks a deceleration in growth from the 27.5% increase in deals that occurred in H1 2021 relative to the same period a year earlier.

During second half of 2021, debt offerings accounted for 16.9% of all deals taking place in the sector. This represents a decrease from the figure of 22.3% in second half of 2020.

GlobalData's deals database is a comprehensive repository that looks at mergers, acquisitions, venture financing, equity offerings, asset transactions, partnerships and debt offerings taking place daily between thousands of companies across the world.

The database details key deal information, such as deal summary, deal rationale, deal financials, parties involved, advisors and deal payment modes.

By tracking the proportion of various types of deals in each sector we can gauge which sectors are seeing growth and where others are struggling.

The highest value debt offering announced in 2021 (where the deal value was known), is the funds to be raised by Royal Caribbean Cruises in an offering of 11.5% senior notes due in 2025.

The debt offering is set to be worth $2,320 million.

The database states that the rationale behind this deal was as follows: "Royal Caribbean Cruises intends to use the proceeds to repay its senior secured term loan agreement, to use the remainder net proceeds for general corporate purposes, which may include repayment of additional indebtedness."
