Rheinmetall issues successful promissory note loans
Investor base and maturities profile expanded at extremely favourable terms
The Düsseldorf-based Rheinmetall Group has assured its access to medium- and long-term liquidity by issuing new promissory note loans worth a total of €168.5 million at extremely favourably interest rates. Owing to the very positive response from investors, Rheinmetall significantly increased the issue volume from the originally planned figure of €100 million.
In taking this step, Rheinmetall is reaching out to a wider investor base, diversifying the Group’s sources of financing after expiration in June 2014 of the last tranche of the promissory note loans issued in 2009. At the same time, the new promissory loans have substantially improved the maturity structure of Rheinmetall’s external financing: a total of 39 German and foreign financial institutes have invested in promissory note loans with maturities of five, seven and ten years.
The promissory note loans were arranged by Bayerische Landesbank and UniCredit Bank AG.
