Berlin, 16 February 2018 – Berlin-based ACCENTRO Real Estate AG (WKN A0KFKB, ISIN DE000A0KFKB3), a key player in the privatisation of residential property in Germany, has announced that it will call its convertible bond 2014/2019 (WKN A1YC4S, ISIN DE000A1YC4S6), issued in 2014, prior to maturity. The remaining balance of EUR 414,737.50 plus interest accrued will be repaid in full and in accordance with the terms of the bond on 27 March 2018.
ACCENTRO made this decision based on the low remaining principal value of the bonds. With a coupon rate of 6.25 per cent, the convertible bond was the company’s most expensive financial instrument.
Jacopo Mingazzini, CEO of ACCENTRO Real Estate AG, commented: “The transformation measures already implemented in 2018 and the early termination of the convertible bond, which had a relatively high coupon rate of 6.25 per cent, will allow us to optimise our financial structure and our equity ratio, thus contributing to the positive development of ACCENTRO.”
Today, ACCENTRO enjoys financial flexibility that will help the company continue to grow. It announced on 24 January 2018 that a corporate bond in the amount of EUR 100 million had been successfully placed within a few hours. The company is currently reviewing acquisition opportunities in Germany’s metropolitan regions in order to expand its privatisation portfolio.
