The highest value debt offering announced in 2021 (where the deal value was known), is the funds to be raised by ICON in a private placement of senior secured notes due in 2028.

The debt offering is set to be worth $1,515 million.

The database states that the rationale behind this deal was as follows: "The company intends to use the proceeds to (i) fund the cash consideration payable by ICON for the merger, (ii) refinance and repay certain existing indebtedness of ICON, its subsidiaries and PRA (the “refinancing”) and (iii) pay fees and expenses related to the merger, the refinancing and the offering."
