The benchmark bond I/2009 matures on 21 January 2019, pays a coupon of 3.875% p.a. and carries a re-offer price of 99.471 (with a 3.94% yield). This corresponds to a yield pick-up of 95.7 basis points over the Bund maturing in January 2019. Lead managers of the transaction are Deutsche Bank, Credit Suisse and BNP Paribas. The Global has received the same AAA/Aaa/AAA ratings from Fitch Ratings, Moody's and Standard & Poor's as all KfW bonds.
"We knew that the situation in the market would be challenging. So we are highly pleased that we were able to start our 2009 Euro Benchmark Programme with a 10-year global bond", said Frank Czichowski, KfW Treasurer. "We succeeded in placing a volume of EUR 3 bn mainly with European investors - a good result in these times and in this maturity segment".
Given the very high number of comparable bonds expected to be placed in the European capital market, KfW got a head start by announcing its issuing plans and commissioning the lead managers for this transaction already at the end of 2008.
A steep yield curve and a lack of issues in the long-term maturity segment were the key factors that prompted KfW to offer a 10-year bond in the market. The last 10-year bond issued in the market segment "Supras, Sovereigns and Agencies" was also issued by KfW, one year ago in January.
The order book for the Euro Benchmark I/2009 was opened on Monday morning and filled steadily, which is typical for issues in the long-term segment. The book was closed on Tuesday around noontime with more than 180 individual orders adding up to over EUR 5.4 bn. KfW was thus able to place a well-diversified EUR 3 bn transaction.

A research team led by physicists at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) has developed molecular nanoswitches that can be toggled between two structurally different states using an applied voltage. They can serve as the basis for a pioneering class of devices that could replace silicon-based components with organic molecules.
The development of new electronic technologies drives the incessant reduction of functional component sizes. In the context of an international collaborative...

There are videos on the internet that can make one marvel at technology. For example, a smartphone is casually bent around the arm or a thin-film display is rolled in all directions and with almost every diameter. From the user's point of view, this looks fantastic. From a professional point of view, however, the question arises: Is that already possible?
At Display Week 2018, scientists from the Fraunhofer Institute for Applied Polymer Research IAP will be demonstrating today’s technological possibilities and...
