E.ON successfully raises €2.25 billion of bonds – €1 billion again as green bond
- Early refinancing of 2020 bond redemptions
- Green bond issuance to fund sustainable infrastructure and energy efficiency projects
- All bonds met very high investor demand
Today, E.ON issued three bond tranches with a combined volume of €2.25 billion. The high level of demand enabled E.ON to secure favorable interest terms across all maturities:
- €750 million bond maturing in December 2023 with coupon of 0%
- €1 billion green bond maturing in September 2027 with coupon of 0.375%
- €500 million bond maturing in December 2030 with coupon of 0.750%
The transaction was executed by an international bank consortium. BNP Paribas, Deutsche Bank, J.P. Morgan and Santander served as active bookrunners.
This €2.25 billion transaction followed a series of smaller issuances at the end of last year. The proceeds are intended to be used to refinance all bonds that are scheduled to mature in 2020 and to fund sustainable infrastructure and energy efficiency projects.
E.ON’s CFO Marc Spieker: “With its investments in smart energy networks and sustainable customer solutions, E.ON is one of the leading companies driving the energy transition in Europe. This next successful green bond issuance shows that we are living up to our promise to include sustainability as an integral part of our funding structure.”
