Successful first issue under the new Green MTN programme
On 13 May 2016, Fabege made its first issue under the recently established Green MTN programme.
Fabege has issued 600 SEKm of two year bonds with a variable interest rate of 3M Stibor plus 130 bps. Handelsbanken.acted as sole bookrunner for the transaction.
By establishing an MTN programme with specific terms and conditions relating to sustainability and environment, Fabege launched a new green financing facility totalling 2,000 SEKm in April.
- We are very happy about the great interest shown in this first issue under our new Green MTN programme and have noted strong demand from investors with a focus on sustainability. The issue is in line with our commitment to fund ourselves in a green way and is a good fit with our ambitious sustainability efforts, says Åsa Lind, Head of Treasury at Fabege.
Fabege will also apply for a listing of the bond on the Nasdaq Stockholm Sustainable Bond List.
Fabege is aiming to achieve environmental certification for its entire property portfolio by 2018. In parallel to the environmental certification work, the aim is that the company’s financing should also be green. In October 2015, Fabege took out a ten-year loan of 939 SEKm from the European Investment Bank (EIB), with the aim of making investments in environmentally certified property projects. At the end of last year, the first green rights issue of 406 million SEKm was made as part of the newly established green framework at the part-owned company Nya Svensk FastighetsFinansiering AB (Nya SFF) and in April a green MTN programme amounting to 2,000 SEKm was launched with specific conditions relating to sustainability and the environment.
