Today, HeidelbergCement priced a Eurobond issue (ISIN XS1529515584) under its €10 billion EMTN programme with an issuance volume of €1 billion and a maturity date of 7 February 2025. Demand was very high; the bond was oversubscribed several times.
With this issue, HeidelbergCement tapped the capital market for the first time following the recent classification in the Investment Grade. The 8-year bond bears a fixed coupon of 1.50% p.a. The issue price is at 98.529%, resulting in a yield to maturity of 1.694%. These terms are the most attractive HeidelbergCement could ever secure in this maturity segment. Joint Bookrunners of the transaction are Banca IMI, BNP Paribas, Deutsche Bank and Morgan Stanley.
The proceeds of the transaction will be used for general corporate purposes and for the refinancing of the Eurobond maturing in January 2017.
