Advertisement in the meaning of Art 14 of the Delegated Regulation (EU) 2019/979
- Re-offer price set at 100% – Subscription period starting on 4 November 2019
- Around € 25 million of the 2015-2020 bond exchanged for new bond
Vienna, 4 November 2019 – The cash subscription period for the new 2.750% UBM Bond 2019 (ISIN AT0000A2AX04) with a term of six years (2019-2025) begins today. The cash subscription offer was preceded by an offer to exchange the 2015-2020 bonds for the new six-year 2019 UBM Bond, which was accepted by approximately one third of the holders of the 2015-2020 bonds. A total principal amount of € 25.16m of the 2015-2020 senior notes was exchanged for the new 2019 UBM Bonds, representing approximately 33.55% of the total principal amount of the outstanding 2015-2020 bonds. The exchange period ran until 31 October 2019. Due to the successful exchange offer and strong demand from other retail and institutional investors, the re-offer price was set at 100% of the principal amount by the Issuer in consultation with the Joint Lead Managers. “We are very pleased with the investor feedback to date, the demand for the new bond is well above our expectations – proof of the strong confidence investors have in UBM as a recurring and reliable bond issuer. The market rewards our reliability and our clear commitment to a conservative financial policy,” says Patric Thate, CFO of UBM Development AG.
Interested investors will be able to subscribe the 2.750% UBM Bond 2019-2025 in the time period of presuambly 4-8 November 2019, subject to early closure. The issue volume of the UBM Bond 2019-2025 amounts to up to € 120m, of which up to € 94,836,000.00 is now available for cash subscription on the basis of the exchange already effected. Due to the amount of the investors’ indications of interest available to the issuer for a subscription within the scope of the cash subscription offer, an early closing of the cash subscription period is likely. The UBM Bond 2019 will be 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. UBM Development AG plans to use the proceeds from the issue to refinance existing financing and to realise new and existing projects. The planned value date is 13 November 2019. The listing of the UBM Bond 2019 on the Official Market (Corporates Prime) of the Vienna Stock Exchange is intended.
