KfW's 4th USD Global Transaction in 2010 illustrates the strength of its USD Programme

19.04.2010
With the issue of its fourth USD Global this year, KfW expanded the maturity spectrum of its USD Programme with a successful 2 year transaction. With this bond, KfW has so far in 2010 raised EUR 29.9 billion (39.9 %) of its announced EUR 70-75 billion funding requirements.

The USD 4 billion bond matures on June 15, 2012 and carries a coupon of 1.25 %. The reoffer price was set at 99.86 %, corresponding to a yield-pick up of 29.25 basis points (bp) over the US-Treasury, maturing in March 2012. Lead managers of the transaction were Bank of America/Merrill Lynch, BNP Paribas and HSBC. Co-lead managers were Barclays, Credit Suisse, Deutsche Bank, Mizuho, Mitsubishi UFG, Morgan Stanley, Royal Bank of Canada CM, Royal Bank of Scotland, Toronto Dominion and UBS.

The deal was announced on April 14, 2010, New York morning with an initial price guidance of +5 to+7 bp over the mid swap rate. From the start there was strong and broad based demand from high quality investors out of North America. The book exceeded USD 3 billion by the end of the US business day. Robust demand from Asia overnight combined with good interest out of Europe with little to no price sensitivity allowed KfW to revise the price guidance to mid swaps +5 bp. The final order book amounted to USD 4.8 billion. Given the quality of the order book KfW was able to price a USD 4 billion transaction late NY morning on September 15, 2010.

The breakdown of the order book by sectors is as follows:

Im Focus: Artificial agent designs quantum experiments

On the way to an intelligent laboratory, physicists from Innsbruck and Vienna present an artificial agent that autonomously designs quantum experiments. In initial experiments, the system has independently (re)discovered experimental techniques that are nowadays standard in modern quantum optical laboratories. This shows how machines could play a more creative role in research in the future.

We carry smartphones in our pockets, the streets are dotted with semi-autonomous cars, but in the research laboratory experiments are still being designed by...

So-called pre-distorted states accelerate photochemical reactions too

What enables electrons to be transferred swiftly, for example during photosynthesis? An interdisciplinary team of researchers has worked out the details of how...

Im Focus: The first precise measurement of a single molecule's effective charge

For the first time, scientists have precisely measured the effective electrical charge of a single molecule in solution. This fundamental insight of an SNSF Professor could also pave the way for future medical diagnostics.

Electrical charge is one of the key properties that allows molecules to interact. Life itself depends on this phenomenon: many biological processes involve...

Im Focus: Paradigm shift in Paris: Encouraging an holistic view of laser machining

At the JEC World Composite Show in Paris in March 2018, the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT will be focusing on the latest trends and innovations in laser machining of composites. Among other things, researchers at the booth shared with the Aachen Center for Integrative Lightweight Production (AZL) will demonstrate how lasers can be used for joining, structuring, cutting and drilling composite materials.

No other industry has attracted as much public attention to composite materials as the automotive industry, which along with the aerospace industry is a driver...

Im Focus: Room-temperature multiferroic thin films and their properties

Scientists at Tokyo Institute of Technology (Tokyo Tech) and Tohoku University have developed high-quality GFO epitaxial films and systematically investigated their ferroelectric and ferromagnetic properties. They also demonstrated the room-temperature magnetocapacitance effects of these GFO thin films.

Multiferroic materials show magnetically driven ferroelectricity. They are attracting increasing attention because of their fascinating properties such as...
