SAP Successfully Places a Two-Tranche Euro Benchmark Debut Bond Transaction

(PresseBox) (Walldorf, ) SAP AG (NYSE: SAP) today successfully placed a Eurobond with a two-tranche structure consisting of a euro 500 million four-year tranche and a euro 500 million seven-year tranche. The four-year notes pay a coupon of 2.50% and were issued at a price of 99.755%, corresponding to a spread of 45 basis points over the Euro Mid-Swaps rate. The seven-year notes pay a coupon of 3.50% and were issued at a price of 99.780%, corresponding to a spread of 70 basis points over the Euro Mid-Swaps rate.

The notes will be issued off a standalone prospectus and be listed on the Luxembourg Stock Exchange. The denomination was set to EUR 1,000 to have a better appeal to retail, and private banks and their clients.

The transaction was heavily oversubscribed and generated strong international demand, with the majority being placed in Germany, Switzerland and the UK. While the notes enjoyed a strong demand from retail and private banks, SAP also achieved a well-diversified distribution among core institutional investors such as fund managers, insurance companies and pension funds. The proceeds of the transaction will be used for general corporate purposes, diversifying SAP's sources of financing and further increasing its financial flexibility.

The joint lead managers for the transaction were BNP Paribas, Deutsche Bank, ING and JP Morgan.
