On May 5th, the Co-issuers Special Grains S.A. and Petroagro S.A. conducted their second co-issuance of notes; Class II Notes —simple, non-convertible into shares, unguaranteed—, were denominated in U.S. Dollars but integrated —and payable— in Argentine Pesos, for a total nominal amount of US$7,841,511. The joint issuance was carried out within the companies’ Global Program for the Issuance and/or Co-Issuance of Short, Medium, and/or Long Term Notes for a maximum outstanding amount of up to US$20,000,000 (or its equivalent in other currencies or value units).
