Hapag-Lloyd successfully places bond / Volume upsizing to EUR 250 million / Increased part of proceeds will be used for early full redemption of existing USD Notes
Hapag-Lloyd AG has successfully placed a bond today with a volume of EUR 250 million. Due to the high demand Hapag-Lloyd was able to upsize the bond from the originally announced volume of EUR 150 million to EUR 250 million. The bond with a maturity of five years has a coupon of 6.75%. The emission price was 100.00%. The bond will be listed on the Luxembourg Stock Exchange. After the upsizing of the bond an increased part of the proceeds, amounting to USD 125 million converted (approx. EUR 117 million), will be used for the early full redemption of US dollar notes due in autumn 2017. The remaining proceeds will be used for general corporate purposes (including further repayment of existing indebtedness).
