The Chairman of CLS, Sten Mortstedt, said: “CLS’s bond issue has proved very successful and we are delighted that a large number of investors have shown great confidence in our Company.  Due to exceptional demand we were obliged to close subscriptions four days prior to schedule, as subscriptions already exceeded the initial target by almost 40 per cent.  This also led us to increase the size of the issue to £65 million from the initial objective of £50 million.”

Canaccord were the Lead Managers to the Issue, with Travers Smith and Linklaters providing legal advice.
