Kinnevik AB (publ) ("Kinnevik") today announced that it has issued SEK 1.5bn in new bonds in the Nordic bond market.
The SEK 1.5bn bonds have a final maturity of five years and are separated in one SEK 250m tranche with a fixed rate coupon of 1.058 percent, and one SEK 1,250m tranche with a floating rate coupon of the three-month STIBOR plus 0.80 percent. In order to hedge the interest rate risk, Kinnevik has entered into an interest rate swap agreement whereby it will pay a fixed annual interest rate also on the SEK 1,250m.
The bonds are issued under Kinnevik's Medium Term Note Programme established in February 2020 and the proceeds from the bond issue will primarily be used to partially refinance bonds maturing during 2020.
