Berlin, 17 May 2019 - Today, TLG IMMOBILIEN AG (ISIN: DE000A12B8Z4) announced the successful placement of senior unsecured fixed rate standalone notes in an aggregate nominal amount of EUR 600 million with a denomination of EUR 100,000 (the "Notes"). The Notes are due on 28 May 2026 and will bear interest at a rate of 1.50% per year.
TLG IMMOBILIEN intends to use the net proceeds for future real estate acquisitions and general corporate purposes.
As the interest rate of the Notes is below its current average interest rate of interest-bearing liabilities, TLG IMMOBILIEN AG's average cash costs of debt are expected to decline further, while its average weighted maturity of approximately 5 years at the moment will improve further.
TLG IMMOBILIEN intends to arrange for the Notes to be listed on the regulated market of the Luxembourg Stock Exchange (Bourse de Luxembourg).
Commenting on the successful bond placement, Gerald Klinck, Chief Financial Officer of TLG IMMOBILIEN AG, said: "With its second unsecured corporate bond issuance within two years, TLG IMMOBILIEN AG can further diversify its sources of funding and proves its ability to successfully access the debt capital markets. In addition, the issuance supports us in the further execution of the growth strategy."
J.P. Morgan acted as Sole Global Coordinator and together with Credit Suisse as Joint Bookrunners on this transaction. VICTORIAPARTNERS acted as independent financial advisor to TLG IMMIBILIEN AG.
