CA IMMO SUCCESSFULLY PLACES SECOND BOND
With a total volume of around €150 million, the bond issued by CA Immobilien Anlagen AG created a great deal of interest with investors. Retail sales accounted for up to 80 % of the volume, with the remainder placed with institutional investors. Book building was completed ahead of time, with the bond subscribed twice over within 24 hours. Thanks to strong demand from private investors in Austria, the offer was snapped up on the first day of the subscription period. The bond will be listed in the prime market segment of the Vienna Stock Exchange.
As Dr. Bruno Ettenauer, Chief Executive Officer at CA Immo, explained, “This transaction represents the highly successful market placing of the second corporate bond in the history of CA Immo.” Half of the capital raised will be used to enhance the company’s financing structure; the other half will serve to improve the Group’s liquidity.
The term is set at five years and the interest rate has been fixed at 6.125% p.a., producing a yield upon issue of 5.836% p.a. The lead manager for the transaction was UniCredit CAIB AG.
