Deal: Senior unsecured notes

Area: Corporate

Value: SGD$275 million (Approx $211m)

Key players: The Freehills team was led by the head of debt capital markets, partner Patrick Lowden, together with partners Justin Pelly and Justin O’Farrell (pictured) and senior associate Laura Cameron

Deal significance: Freehills has advised Lend Lease on its issue of $275 million of Singapore dollar denominated senior unsecured notes, which are listed on the Singapore Securities Exchange and mature in July 2017. The fixed rate notes were 1.6 times oversubscribed and priced at par yielding 4.625 per cent per annum, payable semi-annually. “The issue continues the trend of strong Australian corporate credits seeking to diversify their funding mix to include direct issues into the domestic and offshore debt capital markets,” said Lowden. “What was particularly pleasing about this transaction was the use of an Australian documentation platform for an international transaction. It was fantastic to be able to take the lead working with such a valued client on another market-leading transaction.”
