Strong demand from new investors resulted in the issue being oversubscribed within the range of 6.5% to 8.0%.
This allowed the 2016 ZDP Shares to be priced in the middle of the range at a gross redemption yield of 7.25%, the company said.
Picton said the announcement completed its £230m refinancing process "providing a balanced and staggered debt maturity profile of 4, 10, 15 and 20 years with the ability to manage the debt position by optimising the timing of asset disposals".
