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:
This press release is not an offer of securities for sale in the United States. Securities may not be offered or sold in the United States absent registration or an exemption from registration. KfW has registered the securities that are the subject of this press release for sale in the United States. The offering of the securities in the United States will be made by means of a prospectus that may be obtained from KfW and will contain detailed information about KfW and its management, financial statements and information about the Federal Republic of Germany.

At the Hannover Messe 2018, the Bundesanstalt für Materialforschung und-prüfung (BAM) will show how, in the future, astronauts could produce their own tools or spare parts in zero gravity using 3D printing. This will reduce, weight and transport costs for space missions. Visitors can experience the innovative additive manufacturing process live at the fair.
Powder-based additive manufacturing in zero gravity is the name of the project in which a component is produced by applying metallic powder layers and then...
Physicists at the Laboratory for Attosecond Physics, which is jointly run by Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität and the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics, have developed a high-power laser system that generates ultrashort pulses of light covering a large share of the mid-infrared spectrum. The researchers envisage a wide range of applications for the technology – in the early diagnosis of cancer, for instance.
Molecules are the building blocks of life. Like all other organisms, we are made of them. They control our biorhythm, and they can also reflect our state of...
University of Connecticut researchers have created a biodegradable composite made of silk fibers that can be used to repair broken load-bearing bones without the complications sometimes presented by other materials.
Repairing major load-bearing bones such as those in the leg can be a long and uncomfortable process.
Study published in the journal ACS Applied Materials & Interfaces is the outcome of an international effort that included teams from Dresden and Berlin in Germany, and the US.
Scientists at the Helmholtz-Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR) together with colleagues from the Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin (HZB) and the University of Virginia...
Novel highly efficient and brilliant gamma-ray source: Based on model calculations, physicists of the Max PIanck Institute for Nuclear Physics in Heidelberg propose a novel method for an efficient high-brilliance gamma-ray source. A giant collimated gamma-ray pulse is generated from the interaction of a dense ultra-relativistic electron beam with a thin solid conductor. Energetic gamma-rays are copiously produced as the electron beam splits into filaments while propagating across the conductor. The resulting gamma-ray energy and flux enable novel experiments in nuclear and fundamental physics.
The typical wavelength of light interacting with an object of the microcosm scales with the size of this object. For atoms, this ranges from visible light to...
