Heidelberg optimizes financial framework – annual interest saving of some €6 million.

  • Company partially redeems existing high-yield bond running to 2018
  • Around €64.5 million from the bond to be repaid from cash on hand in mid-April

Heidelberger Druckmaschinen AG (Heidelberg) is improving its financing structure. The company today decided to redeem a further sum of around €64.5 million from the high-yield bond (with a coupon of 9.25 percent), which runs to 2018 and has a current volume of around €115 million. The sum will be repaid on April 15, 2016. Issued in 2011 with an original volume of some €300 million, the bond was a key element in using long-term capital market instruments to diversify the company’s financing and has gradually been repaid since then. The latest repayment is being made from cash on hand and the annual interest saving of around €6 million will have a positive impact on the financial result.

In accordance with the bond conditions, the early redemption will take place by means of a public announcement with effect from April 15, 2016 with a redemption value, including redemption premium, of around 102.3 percent. The notice of redemption can also be viewed directly on the Luxembourg Stock Exchange’s website.
