Deutsche Hypo successfully issued its second benchmark mortgage Pfandbrief in 2016 today.
The issue has a volume of 750 million euros, with a coupon of 0.25 percent. The issue price was 99.635 percent, corresponding to a yield of 0.294 percent (-1 basis point to mid-swap). In this successful transaction, Deutsche Hypo was accompanied by a syndicate consisting of BayernLB, NATIXIS, NORD/LB and UniCredit as joint leads and ABN AMRO and Bankhaus Lampe as co-leads.
As agreed with the syndicate, the order book was opened without an Initial Price Talk. The order book momentum was very high, so that the syndicate received more than 70 purchase orders within 75 minutes and the requested total volume was 1.5 billion euros. Thus, the issue was oversubscribed twice and was dominated by domestic investors. About 79 percent were German investors, approximately 6 percent are based in Benelux, 5 percent in Scandinavia, 3 percent in Switzerland, 2 percent in the UK and Ireland, 2 percent in France and 3 percent in other foreign countries.
“The impressive high demand for our second benchmark issue of the year reflects the strong confidence of investors in the Deutsche Hypo,” said Andreas Pohl, speaker of the Board of Managing Directors. “We are excited about the broad investor base that emphasizes again the great appeal of our Pfandbrief. We have experienced once again that our investor relations activities pay out. Many of the institutions visited during roadshows and individual investor meetings were significantly present in the order book.
Deutsche Hypo looks back on more than 140 years of experience in the capital markets, and is one of the oldest Pfandbrief banks in Germany. For 2016, a funding volume of 4.5 billion euros is planned. In addition to Pfandbriefe Deutsche Hypo also issues unsecured bearer and registered bonds.
