Matson, Inc., Hawaii's largest ocean cargo carrier, said today that it has raised $100 million for "general corporate purposes" through the private placement of 30-year senior unsecured notes.
The notes have a weighted average life of approximately 14.5 years and an interest rate of 4.35 percent, payable semi-annually, the company said.
"We are pleased to have closed this private placement transaction which provides Matson with long-term, unsecured debt at an attractive fixed interest rate and demonstrates the company's continued strong access to external capital," said Joel Wine, Matson's senior vice president and chief financial officer, in a news release.
