Airbus Group issues €1 billion 10-year bond

Airbus Group, rated A2 by Moody’s and A by Standard & Poor’s, successfully priced a new 10-year bond offering denominated in euros on 25 March, 2014. This €1 billion transaction is the first bond issue for the newly rebranded “Airbus Group” and marks the return of the company to the euro debt capital markets after almost five years.

The offering was very well received by the market and generated orders of around €3.8 billion, enabling the Group to benefit from the improved funding conditions currently available in the capital markets. The 2.375% coupon was the lowest ever for any of the Group’s bond issuances. Net proceeds from the issue will be used for general corporate purposes.

The transaction followed a well-attended pan-European Roadshow in London, Frankfurt and Paris. The bond placement was made with around 230 qualified investors, mainly based in France, Germany and the UK.

An application has been made for the bonds to be admitted for trading on the Luxembourg Stock Exchange.
