- Demand for bonds with a total value of €2.75 billion and maturities of five, nine and twelve years 2.5 times higher than issue volume
- Placement directly after summer lull secures favorable financing conditions
MUNICH, 07-Sep-2018 — /EuropaWire/ — After a five-year absence, Siemens has made an impressive return to the euro capital market. For its new bonds, the company generated very strong demand of €6.8 billion. Siemens issued bonds with a total value of €2.75 billion and maturities of five, nine and twelve years. The high demand enabled Siemens to obtain very good interest-rate conditions over all maturities. At the time of price fixing, the average issue yield for all three maturities was 20 basis points (0.2 percentage points) below the initial indications.
The proceeds of the issuance will be used for general corporate purposes. The transaction closed today.
