BAA completes follow-on US$ bond issue with US$500 million 3 year issue


BAA is pleased to announce the successful placing of a US$500 million 3 year bond, following its inaugural US dollar debt capital markets transaction completed in June 2011.


The bond issue follows a roadshow completed last week in the US and saw a range of major US investors supporting the transaction, which was more than three times oversubscribed. This issue demonstrates BAA's commitment to return to each of the currency markets in which it has recently established a presence and has allowed further diversification of its investor base.


The bond has a fixed annual coupon of 2.5% and priced at the tight end of guidance at 215 basis points over Treasuries, providing an attractive cost of funds to BAA.


Proceeds from the bond issue will be used to repay a significant proportion of the £427 million remaining under the Group's capital expenditure facility, which is due for repayment in August 2013. The capital expenditure facility was replaced last week with a new five year £2 billion revolving credit facility which is presently undrawn.


Fred Maroudas, BAA's Director of Treasury, said: "We are delighted with the outcome of this transaction as we start to build on the initial presence we established in the US dollar bond market last year. We look forward to further developing our broadened range of US investor relationships in the years ahead."
