Run on bond confirms UBM’s sustainability strategy

  • Volume increased from €125m to €150m at short notice
  • Books closed prematurely after only two hours
  • “Financial strength is a key competitive advantage“


Vienna, 12 May 2021 – The 3.125% sustainability-linked UBM bond 2021 (ISIN AT0000A2QS11) was successfully placed and the books were closed after only two hours on the first day of the cash subscription period. Due to the enormous demand, the volume was increased from €125m to €150m at short notice. “We are extremely pleased over the success story of our first sustainability-linked bond and the strong confidence of investors in UBM as an issuer and in our strategy“, commented Patric Thate, CFO of UBM Development AG, and added: “Our financial strength is a key competitive advantage, and this issue will allow us to react very quickly to market opportunities.“

The holders of the UBM bond 2017-2022 had been invited in advance to exchange their existing bond certificates for the new five-year sustainability-linked UBM bond. Roughly half the holders of the old bond took advantage of this offer.

The sustainability-linked UBM bond was offered for subscription in Austria, Germany and Luxembourg as part of a public offering subject to a prospectus requirement and in other countries as part of a private placement. The planned value date is 21 May 2021. A listing in the Official Market (Corporates Prime) of the Vienna Stock Exchange is planned for the sustainability-linked UBM bond 2021.

Raiffeisen Bank International AG and M.M. Warburg & CO acted as joint lead managers, bookrunners and dealer manager for the transaction.
