E.ON successfully issues €750 million green bond
- Green bond issuance to fund sustainable infrastructure and energy efficiency projects
- Very high investor demand with orderbooks being oversubscribed 8 times
- Attractive pricing in a volatile market environment
Today, E.ON issued a green bond with a tenor of 5.5 years and a volume of €750 million. Despite significant market disruptions during past weeks due to Covid 19, E.ON was able to secure favorable interest terms: the bonds have a coupon of 1%. The comparatively favorable terms stem from significant investor demand leading to 8 times oversubscribed orderbooks.
The successful bond transaction followed E.ON’s capital market day last week and the subsequent confirmation of E.ON’s BBB/Baa2 rating with stable outlooks by both Standard & Poor’s and Moody’s.
The transaction was executed by an international bank consortium. Goldman Sachs International, ING and UniCredit served as active bookrunners.
E.ON’s CFO Marc Spieker: “We very much appreciate today’s successful placement. The strong investor demand for E.ON’s bonds underpins capital market’s trust in our strategic direction and our resilient business model.”
