MAS Securities B.V., a wholly owned subsidiary of MAS has closed the green corporate bond book build referred to in
the announcement released earlier today. MAS Securities B.V. has priced a €300 million unsecured 5-year Eurobond
maturing on 19 May 2026 (“the Bond”), carrying a 4.25% fixed coupon, with an issue price of 98.903%.
Moody’s and Fitch assigned the Bond a Ba1 and BB rating, in line with the corporate rating.
Application will be made for listing the Bond with Euronext Dublin.
MAS’ strong financial position, as also indicated by its corporate ratings, as well as the participation of the European
Bank of Reconstruction and Development as an investor contributed to the success of the issuance. The single day
oversubscribed book build attracted investment from several leading global asset managers and investors.
“As a management team, we always had sustainability at the forefront of our thinking. Our assets are managed with a
long-term-hold mindset and therefore it makes economic sense to think of our investments in a sustainable manner.”
Martin Slabbert, CEO of MAS Real Estate.
