Groupe PSA successfully returns to the financial markets

Commenting on the transaction, Jean-Baptiste de CHATILLON, Chief Financial Officer of Groupe PSA and member of the Managing Board, said: "This transaction has been a success. It illustrates the success of our 'Back in the Race' recovery plan and attests to investors confidence for 'Push to Pass', our new profitable growth plan, unveiled on April 5th."
This issue was driven by the following 10 banks : BNP Paribas, HSBC, CA CIB, Natixis, Santander, Société Générale, Banca IMI, Commerzbank, RBS and Unicredit.
