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.
The breakdown of the order book by sector is as follows:

A new manufacturing technique uses a process similar to newspaper printing to form smoother and more flexible metals for making ultrafast electronic devices.
The low-cost process, developed by Purdue University researchers, combines tools already used in industry for manufacturing metals on a large scale, but uses...
For the first time ever, scientists have determined the cosmic origin of highest-energy neutrinos. A research group led by IceCube scientist Elisa Resconi, spokesperson of the Collaborative Research Center SFB1258 at the Technical University of Munich (TUM), provides an important piece of evidence that the particles detected by the IceCube neutrino telescope at the South Pole originate from a galaxy four billion light-years away from Earth.
To rule out other origins with certainty, the team led by neutrino physicist Elisa Resconi from the Technical University of Munich and multi-wavelength...
For the first time a team of researchers have discovered two different phases of magnetic skyrmions in a single material. Physicists of the Technical Universities of Munich and Dresden and the University of Cologne can now better study and understand the properties of these magnetic structures, which are important for both basic research and applications.
Whirlpools are an everyday experience in a bath tub: When the water is drained a circular vortex is formed. Typically, such whirls are rather stable. Similar...
Physicists working with Roland Wester at the University of Innsbruck have investigated if and how chemical reactions can be influenced by targeted vibrational excitation of the reactants. They were able to demonstrate that excitation with a laser beam does not affect the efficiency of a chemical exchange reaction and that the excited molecular group acts only as a spectator in the reaction.
A frequently used reaction in organic chemistry is nucleophilic substitution. It plays, for example, an important role in in the synthesis of new chemical...
Optical spectroscopy allows investigating the energy structure and dynamic properties of complex quantum systems. Researchers from the University of Würzburg present two new approaches of coherent two-dimensional spectroscopy.
"Put an excitation into the system and observe how it evolves." According to physicist Professor Tobias Brixner, this is the credo of optical spectroscopy....
