Property for Industry bond to pay 4.25%

By Gavin Evans

Sept. 21 (BusinessDesk) - Property for Industry has fully utilised an over-subscription facility to issue $100 million of seven-year bonds.

The bonds, which mature in October 2025, will pay interest of 4.25 percent – near the top end of an indicated range. The seven-year swap rate the bonds were priced against jumped this week as fears of a US-China trade war eased and stronger than expected local GDP data reduced the risks of a rate cut here.

Property for Industry issued the bonds to diversify its funding options and pay down some of its $389 million of bank debt. PFI’s banking facility current costs it about 4.9 percent a year.
