KfW launches second Global of its USD-Programme in 2009

04.02.2009
Frankfurt (ots) - KfW launched its second USD Global in 2009 on Tuesday evening. The issue has a maturity of two years, a volume of 2 bn USD and was sold to over 70 institutional investors worldwide.

The USD II/2009 with a settlement on February 10th 2009 matures on March 15th 2011. With a coupon of 1.875% and a reoffer price of 99.886% it yields 1.931% s.a. This corresponds to a yield pick-up of 100.75 basis points over the current 2-year US Treasury maturing in January 2011.

The bond will have an AAA/Aaa/AAA rating from Fitch Ratings, Moody's and Standard & Poor's. The transaction was lead managed by Goldman Sachs, Merrill Lynch and Royal Bank of Canada CM.

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

Im Focus: Spider silk key to new bone-fixing composite

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.

Im Focus: Gamma-ray flashes from plasma filaments

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...

Im Focus: Basel researchers succeed in cultivating cartilage from stem cells

Stable joint cartilage can be produced from adult stem cells originating from bone marrow. This is made possible by inducing specific molecular processes occurring during embryonic cartilage formation, as researchers from the University and University Hospital of Basel report in the scientific journal PNAS.

Certain mesenchymal stem/stromal cells from the bone marrow of adults are considered extremely promising for skeletal tissue regeneration. These adult stem...
