Deutsche Telekom issues U.S. dollar bonds of 3.5 billion

(PresseBox) ( Bonn, )
Deutsche Telekom has issued bonds with a total volume of USD 3.5 billion. The bonds were issued with terms of 3, 5 and 10 years.

Due to the attractive financing conditions in USD, especially in the short and medium-term maturities, Deutsche Telekom accessed the USD bond market for the second time in six months.

The bonds were issued via the Dutch financing subsidiary Deutsche Telekom International Finance B.V. The bonds, i.e., bond amount and interest, are guaranteed by Deutsche Telekom AG.

The issuance does not increase the Deutsche Telekom Group's net debt.

The proceeds will be used for general corporate financing such as the refinancing of upcoming maturities. There is no relation to a specific investment project. Financing is provided in line with the upcoming capital market maturities and the Group's financial planning, as well as the respective capital market environment.

The issuance was arranged by Citigroup Global Markets Inc., Deutsche Bank Securities, Morgan Stanley & Co. LLC as Active Bookrunners and Credit Suisse Securities (USA) LLC, MUFG Securities Americas Inc. and Santander Investment Securities Inc. as Passive Bookrunners.
