KfW serves investors with a new 5 year USD global - Again strong demand from Asia

25.02.2010
On Wednesday afternoon KfW successfully completed its third offering under its 2010 USD global programme with a USD 3 billion 5 year issue.

After its overwhelming 3- and 10-year transactions in January, KfW is the only issuer who has launched in all benchmark maturities so far, bringing its total funding under the USD programme to USD 11 billion year to date. For the remainder of the year, KfW envisages at least two more USD global issues under the programme.

For 2010 KfW had announced the need to raise a funding volume of EUR 70-75 billion. So far this year approximately EUR 20.8 billion (27.7%) have been raised in 14 different currencies. 62% of this amount were refinanced under the KfW Benchmark Programmes in EUR and USD, whereas the remaining 38% were funded through other public transactions (32%) and private placements (6%) respectively. "With its three USD global issues, KfW starts off on the right foot in the first two months. The strong international demand - 44% coming from Asia - for our USD globals and for our first-class rating is unbroken", Dr. Günther Bräunig, member of the Managing Board of KfW Bankengruppe commented. "This transaction leaves the market in great shape for further KfW dollar issuance later this year", added Bräunig.

The USD 3 billion issue matures on March 3rd 2015 with a coupon of 2.625% paid semi-annually. The reoffer price was set at 99.526%, corresponding to a yield pick-up of 40 basis points over the current US Treasury, maturing in January 2015. In line with all KfW bonds, this issue has an AAA/Aaa/AAA rating from Fitch Ratings, Moody's and Standard & Poor's. Lead manager of the transaction are Citi, Deutsche Bank and Royal Bank of Canada CM; Co-Lead Managers are Bank of America / Merrill Lynch, Barclays, BNP Paribas, DZ Bank, Goldman Sachs, HSBC, Mitsubishi UFG, Morgan Stanley, Nomura and Royal Bank of Scotland.

From the start there was continuous broad based demand from high quality investors out of the US-time zone. The final order book was well oversubscribed with 94 orders totalling over USD 4.4 billion and of extremely high quality.

Im Focus: Dresdner scientists print tomorrow’s world

The Fraunhofer IWS Dresden and Technische Universität Dresden inaugurated their jointly operated Center for Additive Manufacturing Dresden (AMCD) with a festive ceremony on February 7, 2017. Scientists from various disciplines perform research on materials, additive manufacturing processes and innovative technologies, which build up components in a layer by layer process. This technology opens up new horizons for component design and combinations of functions. For example during fabrication, electrical conductors and sensors are already able to be additively manufactured into components. They provide information about stress conditions of a product during operation.

The 3D-printing technology, or additive manufacturing as it is often called, has long made the step out of scientific research laboratories into industrial...

Im Focus: Three Magnetic States for Each Hole

Nanometer-scale magnetic perforated grids could create new possibilities for computing. Together with international colleagues, scientists from the Helmholtz Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR) have shown how a cobalt grid can be reliably programmed at room temperature. In addition they discovered that for every hole ("antidot") three magnetic states can be configured. The results have been published in the journal "Scientific Reports".

Physicist Dr. Rantej Bali from the HZDR, together with scientists from Singapore and Australia, designed a special grid structure in a thin layer of cobalt in...
