John Fredriksen’s SFL Corp is going on the road to gauge interest for a new bond issue as earlier debt falls due in May.

The Oslo-listed sale-and-leaseback specialist has engaged Norwegian investment banks Arctic Securities and DNB Markets to arrange a series of fixed-income investor meetings starting on Friday.

A US dollar-denominated four-year note may follow, subject to market conditions.

SFL said net proceeds would be used to refinance existing bonds and for general corporate purposes.
