DIC Asset AG Places 125 Million EUR Bond within Hours
- Coupon of 4.625 per cent
- Order book closed early
The SDAX-listed real estate company DIC Asset AG (WKN A1X3XX / ISIN DE000A1X3XX4) prematurely ended the placement of its third corporate bond (WKN A12T64 / ISIN DE000A12T648) after just 5 hours of its announcement due to strong demand especially among institutional investors.
The corporate bond will have a volume of EUR 125 million on the basis of subscriptions; target volume was at least EUR 100 million. The bond has been priced at the lower end of the price range at 4.625 per cent, and has a maturity of five years.
Ulrich Höller, CEO of DIC Asset AG: "We take the keen demand for our third bond as a sign for the great and sustained confidence that professional investors have in our business model."
The net proceeds of this transaction will be used to repay existing debt. In particular it is the intention of DIC Asset AG to repay its first bond (ISIN DE000A1KQ1N3, EUR 100,000,000 with a coupon of 5.875 per cent) prematurely by exercising the call option on 16 October 2014. The new issue and the planned advance repayment of the first corporate bond will bolster the Company's existing funding structure, and will help to optimise its terms of financing.
The bond shall be admitted for listing on the Open Market (Freiverkehr) of the Frankfurt Stock Exchange and to be admitted for trading on the Prime Standard for Corporate Bonds (Prime Standard für Unternehmensanleihen) on 08 September 2014.
The transaction was carried out by Bankhaus Lampe KG and Citigroup Global Markets Limited as joint lead managers.
