Wacker Neuson SE issues promissory note (Schuldschein) in the amount of EUR 150 million at attractive conditions
- Long-term financing creates foundation for sustainable growth
- Successful placement at attractive conditions
- Increase in issue volume due to strong demand
Wacker Neuson SE has placed a promissory note (Schuldschein) in the amount of EUR 150 million at attractive conditions. Brokered by NordLB and UniCredit, the promissory note was successfully placed with institutional investors. Demand was strongest among German cooperative and savings banks as well as among European private banks. The original amount was oversubscribed multiple times and this, combined with the attractive conditions, prompted the Group to increase the value of the promissory note from the original EUR 125 million target to EUR 150 million.
“Ensuring financial stability and securing our long-term borrowing needs lay a solid foundation for sustainable growth. The promissory note will help us to achieve the targets we have set in our ‘Strategy 2022’ initiative and provide us with additional flexibility. The positive reaction from investors and the attractive conditions once again confirm the Wacker Neuson Group’s excellent financial standing,” explains Wilfried Trepels, CFO of Wacker Neuson SE.
The promissory note was issued in two tranches of five and seven years, each with fixed interest rates. The allotment took place at the lower end of the marketing range.
This is the fourth promissory note issued by the Group overall. The Wacker Neuson Group last issued a promissory note in March 2018 in the amount of USD 100 million via its affiliate Wacker Neuson Corporation in Menomonee Falls, USA.
