Peach Property Group, an investor specialising in the management of residential property in Germany, has successfully placed its corporate bond with a volume of EUR 250 million with institutional investors in Europe and the USA. The bond, which was placed at an issue price of 99.238 percent, has a term of 3 1/4 years through February 15, 2023 and bears a coupon of 3.5 percent p.a. It was rated Ba3 by Moody’s as well as BB- by Standard & Poor’s and Fitch.
The listing of the corporate bond is planned, and an application has been filed for listing on TISE – The International Stock Exchange – on the Official List. The proceeds from the bond will be used to finance the further growth in Germany – in particular the previously announced acquisition of a real estate portfolio comprising 3,650 apartments. This acquisition will increase Peach Property’s residential portfolio by around 40 percent to more than 12,450 apartments with a market value of just over CHF 1.1 billion by the end of 2019.
Dr. Thomas Wolfensberger, Peach Property Group’s CEO, commented: “We are very pleased with the strong interest from investors in our corporate bond and the trust they placed in our company. This marks a further milestone in the implementation of our growth strategy, for which we have now created additional financial scope.”
