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

19.04.2010
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: Temperature-controlled fiber-optic light source with liquid core

In a recent publication in the renowned journal Optica, scientists of Leibniz-Institute of Photonic Technology (Leibniz IPHT) in Jena showed that they can accurately control the optical properties of liquid-core fiber lasers and therefore their spectral band width by temperature and pressure tuning.

Already last year, the researchers provided experimental proof of a new dynamic of hybrid solitons– temporally and spectrally stationary light waves resulting...

Im Focus: AchemAsia 2019 will take place in Shanghai

Moving into its fourth decade, AchemAsia is setting out for new horizons: The International Expo and Innovation Forum for Sustainable Chemical Production will take place from 21-23 May 2019 in Shanghai, China. With an updated event profile, the eleventh edition focusses on topics that are especially relevant for the Chinese process industry, putting a strong emphasis on sustainability and innovation.

Founded in 1989 as a spin-off of ACHEMA to cater to the needs of China’s then developing industry, AchemAsia has since grown into a platform where the latest...

Im Focus: First real-time test of Li-Fi utilization for the industrial Internet of Things

The BMBF-funded OWICELLS project was successfully completed with a final presentation at the BMW plant in Munich. The presentation demonstrated a Li-Fi communication with a mobile robot, while the robot carried out usual production processes (welding, moving and testing parts) in a 5x5m² production cell. The robust, optical wireless transmission is based on spatial diversity; in other words, data is sent and received simultaneously by several LEDs and several photodiodes. The system can transmit data at more than 100 Mbit/s and five milliseconds latency.

Modern production technologies in the automobile industry must become more flexible in order to fulfil individual customer requirements.

Im Focus: Sharp images with flexible fibers

An international team of scientists has discovered a new way to transfer image information through multimodal fibers with almost no distortion - even if the fiber is bent. The results of the study, to which scientist from the Leibniz-Institute of Photonic Technology Jena (Leibniz IPHT) contributed, were published on 6thJune in the highly-cited journal Physical Review Letters.

Endoscopes allow doctors to see into a patient’s body like through a keyhole. Typically, the images are transmitted via a bundle of several hundreds of optical...
