KfW launches sixth Global of its USD-Programme in 2009

Frankfurt (ots) - KfW launched its sixth USD Global in 2009 on Wednesday afternoon. The issue has a maturity of five years and a volume of three billion USD. In recent weeks strong demand was gathered in this tenor; so KfW could further complete its supply of USD-Globalnotes, which contains maturities from 2-10 years.

The USD three billion issue with a settlement on October 21st 2009 matures on October 21st 2014. With a coupon of 2.75% s.a. and a reoffer price of 99.926% it yields 2.766% semi-annually. This corresponds to a yield pick-up of 44.25 basis points over the current five-year US Treasury maturing in September 2014. The bond will have an AAA/Aaa/AAA rating from Fitch Ratings, Moody's and Standard & Poor's. The transaction is lead managed by Barclays Capital, JP Morgan, and Royal Bank of Canada CM. Co-Lead Managers are BNP Paribas, Citi, Credit Suisse, Deutsche Bank, DZ Bank, HSBC, Morgan Stanley, Royal Bank of Scotland, Toronto Dominion Bank, and UBS.
