SEB issues Additional Tier 1 Capital

SEB issues Additional Tier 1 Capital (AT1) to refinance an old similar instrument that reaches its call date later this year and to optimize its capital structure. The USD 600 million issuance has a coupon of 5.625 per cent and an issue price of 100 per cent.

The loan has no final maturity but entail a possibility for the bank to redeem the loan after 5 years, and any time thereafter. The issuance is in the form of a debt instrument with automatically conversion into Class A-shares if the CET1 ratio of the bank decreases to a certain level.

The issuance of the new AT1 is part of SEB's capital planning and in line with what the bank has previously communicated. The transaction has, at an attractive coupon level, demonstrated the strength of SEB in the international capital markets with an aggregate demand from investors of approximately USD 3bn.

The issuance will be subscribed by and allotted to the joint lead managers. Settlement date is 23 March 2017. The instruments will be listed on the Global Exchange Market regulated by the Irish Stock Exchange.
