“We are glad that the interest from investors was high in this first issue after achieving a public credit rating from Moody´s of Ba1 with Positive Outlook. Kungsleden aims to increase its market borrowing in order to further diversify its funding mix, increase the proportion of unsecured borrowing and extend the average capital term "says Biljana Pehrsson, CEO Kungsleden.
Proceeds from the bond issue will be used to repay part of a short-term bank loan secured with mortgage deed in real property, thus helping to increase the proportion of unsecured borrowing which after the transaction corresponds to about 13 per cent of the total borrowings. The average capital term will also be extended and will after the repayment amount to about 4,2 years.
