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: Penn engineers develop ultrathin, ultralight 'nanocardboard'

When choosing materials to make something, trade-offs need to be made between a host of properties, such as thickness, stiffness and weight. Depending on the application in question, finding just the right balance is the difference between success and failure

Now, a team of Penn Engineers has demonstrated a new material they call "nanocardboard," an ultrathin equivalent of corrugated paper cardboard. A square...

Im Focus: Nanorobots propel through the eye

Scientists developed specially coated nanometer-sized vehicles that can be actively moved through dense tissue like the vitreous of the eye. So far, the transport of nano-vehicles has only been demonstrated in model systems or biological fluids, but not in real tissue. The work was published in the journal Science Advances and constitutes one step further towards nanorobots becoming minimally-invasive tools for precisely delivering medicine to where it is needed.

Researchers of the “Micro, Nano and Molecular Systems” Lab at the Max Planck Institute for Intelligent Systems in Stuttgart, together with an international...
