Leasinvest Real Estate raises, already after one day, the foreseen maximum amount of EUR 75 million through issuing of a bond loan

Thomson Reuters ONE

Leasinvest Real Estate SCA notifies that the public bond offering in Belgium is closed anticipatively, already after the first day of the subscription period, in consultation with the Joint Lead Managers, Belfius Bank NV/SA, BNP Paribas Fortis NV/SA and ING Bank N.V., Belgian Branch, because the maximum amount of EUR 75 million has been reached.

The Joint Lead Managers received subscriptions for an amount that was higher than the foreseen maximum amount of the issue of EUR 75 million. Because of the oversubscription, the subscriptions will be proportionally reduced. The investors will receive more information on this matter via their financial intermediary.

This bond offers an annual gross coupon of 3.75%. This represents a gross actuarial yield of 3.399% on an annual basis and the net annual actuarial yield is 2.472%.[1]

The net proceeds of this issue amount to approximately EUR 74.8 million and will be used for concretising the company strategy and more specifically to fund its growth and further diversification, as well as to diversify its funding sources, and moreover to ensure an extension of the average duration of debt.

Leasinvest Real Estate thanks the investors for their confidence.

The bonds will be issued and admitted to trading on the regulated market of NYSE Euronext Brussels on 9 October 2013.

More information on this public offering can be found in the Prospectus issued by Leasinvest Real Estate SCA on 25 September 2013, as approved by the Financial Services and Markets Authority (FSMA) on 24 September 2013.
