Saxo Bank issues new debt to optimize capital structure
On 19 November, Saxo Bank A/S has successfully issued EUR 60m Additional Tier 1 capital with a settlement date of 26 November 2019.
The Additional Tier 1 capital note is perpetual with an optional call after 5.5 years (PerpNC5.5). The Additional Tier 1 capital note is issued with a fixed interest coupon of 8.125% for the first 5.5 years. The book had strong interest from the outset and was well over-subscribed by c. 2.75x at time of closing, which helped improve the pricing terms of the offering versus initial guidance.
Saxo Bank’s Additional Tier 1 capital is issued to optimize the Bank’s long-term capital structure and to increase the coverage of regulatory requirements.
Latest Additional Tier 1 capital issue from Saxo Bank was in November 2014, where EUR 45m of Perpetual NC5.25 was issued with a fixed coupon of 9.75%.
