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

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: New 3-D wiring technique brings scalable quantum computers closer to reality

Researchers from the Institute for Quantum Computing (IQC) at the University of Waterloo led the development of a new extensible wiring technique capable of controlling superconducting quantum bits, representing a significant step towards to the realization of a scalable quantum computer.

"The quantum socket is a wiring method that uses three-dimensional wires based on spring-loaded pins to address individual qubits," said Jeremy Béjanin, a PhD...

Im Focus: Scientists develop a semiconductor nanocomposite material that moves in response to light

In a paper in Scientific Reports, a research team at Worcester Polytechnic Institute describes a novel light-activated phenomenon that could become the basis for applications as diverse as microscopic robotic grippers and more efficient solar cells.

A research team at Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI) has developed a revolutionary, light-activated semiconductor nanocomposite material that can be used...

Im Focus: Diamonds aren't forever: Sandia, Harvard team create first quantum computer bridge

By forcefully embedding two silicon atoms in a diamond matrix, Sandia researchers have demonstrated for the first time on a single chip all the components needed to create a quantum bridge to link quantum computers together.

"People have already built small quantum computers," says Sandia researcher Ryan Camacho. "Maybe the first useful one won't be a single giant quantum computer...

Im Focus: New Products - Highlights of COMPAMED 2016

COMPAMED has become the leading international marketplace for suppliers of medical manufacturing. The trade fair, which takes place every November and is co-located to MEDICA in Dusseldorf, has been steadily growing over the past years and shows that medical technology remains a rapidly growing market.

In 2016, the joint pavilion by the IVAM Microtechnology Network, the Product Market “High-tech for Medical Devices”, will be located in Hall 8a again and will...

Im Focus: Ultra-thin ferroelectric material for next-generation electronics

'Ferroelectric' materials can switch between different states of electrical polarization in response to an external electric field. This flexibility means they show promise for many applications, for example in electronic devices and computer memory. Current ferroelectric materials are highly valued for their thermal and chemical stability and rapid electro-mechanical responses, but creating a material that is scalable down to the tiny sizes needed for technologies like silicon-based semiconductors (Si-based CMOS) has proven challenging.

Now, Hiroshi Funakubo and co-workers at the Tokyo Institute of Technology, in collaboration with researchers across Japan, have conducted experiments to...
