SEGRO confirms it has launched and priced a £350 million bond with a maturity of 12 years paying a coupon of 2.375% and a £400 million bond with a maturity of 20 years paying a coupon of 2.875%.

SEGRO also confirms that is has accepted for purchase in cash an aggregate principal amount of existing Sterling bonds across four tranches equal to £550 million at a cash cost of £677 million.

The final results of this tender offer were contained in the release issued to the London Stock Exchange on 4 October 2017.

Based on SEGRO’s reported debt position and valuation at 30 June 2017, the pro-forma impact of the tender offer and new issuance on the Group’s financial metrics is as follows:

  • The weighted average maturity of debt increases by 3.0 years to 10.8 years
  • The annual interest saving is circa £10 million equating to a 0.5% reduction in the cost of debt
  • The loan-to-value increases by 1% to 30%
  • EPRA net assets will be circa £127 million lower

The proforma effects shown above are based on completion of the transaction due on 11 October 2017 and the closing out of derivative positions associated with the existing bonds which will be undertaken shortly.

Soumen Das, SEGRO’s Chief Financial Officer, commented:

“We are delighted with the support we have received from our long-term sterling bond investors on both the tender and the highly over-subscribed new issue. The success of this transaction is a further endorsement of SEGRO’s strategy, and allows us to strengthen our balance sheet by extending our debt maturity and reducing our average cost of debt.”
