Avis Budget Group Inc (NYSE: CAR), a US-based company that offers vehicle rental services, has announced that its Avis Budget Rental Car Funding LLC (AESOP) subsidiary has completed an asset-backed bond offering.

AESOP has closed an offering of USD700m of asset-backed bonds with a weighted average interest rate of 3.2%, and renewed an asset-backed bank conduit facility by expanding its borrowing ability by USD100m.

The company executive vice president and chief financial officer, David B Wyshner, said 'We are pleased by the strong interest in our asset-backed securities and to have renewed our conduit facility at significantly reduced borrowing spreads. The asset-backed bonds and renewed conduit facility allow us to achieve three key objectives-they extend our debt maturities, they give us the capacity to fund our domestic car rental fleet in 2011, and they lower our borrowing costs.'
