Berenberg research notes

Debt Capital Markets


Debt Capital Markets Team with a successful start in 2014

Last year, Berenberg successfully originated 13 primary market transactions, including Corporate, High Yield, Convertible, Covered and Government Bonds as well as private placements. Driven by this success and strong track record, Berenberg decided to establish a team of seven people in Frankfurt and Vienna to further foster the already significant position in the Debt Capital Markets.

During the first two quarters of 2014, Berenberg placed the first registered benchmark bond with a volume of EUR 500 million for Slovakia, followed by a EUR 275 million convertible bond including the tap for Grand City Properties S.A. and a further convertible for Cancom, a German company listed in the TecDax. Furthermore, we joined the syndicate in the new EUR 250 million high yield bond issue of the Greek company Intralot S.A.. Currently, further transactions are in execution and expected to be closed soon.

The building materials industry – good times ahead!

The burst of the US subprime crisis and the subsequent economic downturn in connection with rising energy costs harshly hit globally operating building materials companies from the European continent. Right now, industry dynamics for the sector as a whole seem to have turned to a more favorable stance and Berenberg sees good chances that the sector is on the verge back to the investment grade area.
