Georg Fischer issues another bond

(lifePR) (Schaffhausen, ) The Georg Fischer Corporation today raised 200 million Swiss francs in additional long-term capital through the issue of a bond. The coupon on the bond, which will run for six years, is 3.375 percent. The bond, which matures on 12 May 2016, was issued at a price of 100 percent.

A bank syndicate lead managed by Credit Suisse offered the issue to institutional and private investors. By floating this bond, Georg Fischer is strengthening its balanced borrowing structure and improving its maturity profile. At the same time, the Corporation is taking advantage of the favourable capital market conditions in order to further reduce its dependence on bank loans.
