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.

Books were opened on Tuesday New York morning and built quickly, reaching USD 1.5 billion in two hours. 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.

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

Im Focus: 'Nanochains' could increase battery capacity, cut charging time

How long the battery of your phone or computer lasts depends on how many lithium ions can be stored in the battery's negative electrode material. If the battery runs out of these ions, it can't generate an electrical current to run a device and ultimately fails.

Materials with a higher lithium ion storage capacity are either too heavy or the wrong shape to replace graphite, the electrode material currently used in...

Im Focus: Happy hour for time-resolved crystallography

Researchers from the Department of Atomically Resolved Dynamics of the Max Planck Institute for the Structure and Dynamics of Matter (MPSD) at the Center for Free-Electron Laser Science in Hamburg, the University of Hamburg and the European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL) outstation in the city have developed a new method to watch biomolecules at work. This method dramatically simplifies starting enzymatic reactions by mixing a cocktail of small amounts of liquids with protein crystals. Determination of the protein structures at different times after mixing can be assembled into a time-lapse sequence that shows the molecular foundations of biology.

The functions of biomolecules are determined by their motions and structural changes. Yet it is a formidable challenge to understand these dynamic motions.
