New FIIG originated bond issue – CF Asia Pacific Group

New Issue – Last week, CF Asia Pacific Group launched $65m offer of secured subordinated amortising notes

The issuer

CF Asia Pacific Group Pty Ltd (CFAP) is the largest provider of tailored locomotive and rolling stock leasing solutions to rail operators and shippers in Australia.

CFAP is the dominant rail freight leasing company in Australia with an experienced management team and 120 employees. It has a long track record of delivering quality leasing and maintenance solutions.

The company services a broad and loyal customer base, including some of the largest logistics and infrastructure companies in Australia (as shown), with a long history of rolling lease contracts.

CFAP benefits from high barriers to entry largely attributed to the long standing relationships it has with its customers and the significant capital investment required to mirror its operations.

Rail freight is experiencing growth from government initiatives to build national rail infrastructure and expansion of the agriculture / aggregates export sector. With a multi-purpose fleet, CFAP is well positioned to capture this demand, allowing the group to diversify both its customer base and industry sector revenue mix.
