Mighty River Power Successfully Prices New Wholesale Bond

Mighty River Power Successfully Prices New Wholesale Bond Issue

Mighty River Power today announced the successful pricing of a new wholesale bond issue in the domestic market.

The issue consists of $75 million of six year bonds and $25 million of 10 year bonds with fixed coupons of 5.029% and 5.793% respectively. The issue date of the bonds is 6 March 2012.

Mighty River Power’s Chief Financial Officer, William Meek, said these bonds were part of a refinancing programme and the proceeds would be used for general corporate purposes.

“The issue was taken up by a broad range of local institutional investors and we’re delighted with the continued support for Mighty River Power from the domestic debt market. The success of the bond issue will lengthen our debt maturity profile to more than 5 years following the Company’s repayment of its Retail Bond in May 2013,” said Mr Meek.

BNZ was the sole lead arranger for the bond issue.
