Jakarta – PT Lippo Karawaci Tbk (“LPKR” or the “Company”), Indonesia’s largest real estate company by assets and revenues, has successfully launched a five-year bond, valued at $325 million, on January 14, 2020. The bond will offer a yield of 8.125% and the proceeds will be used to partially repay bonds maturing in 2022. In addition, the Company is in the final stages of securing a facility to refinance the remaining $100 million in bonds upon which Lippo Karawaci will have no debt maturities over the next five years until 2025.
At a Net Debt to Equity Ratio of 21%, Lippo Karawaci has amongst the lowest leverage of all Indonesian real estate companies. The refinancing of the 2022 Bonds further improves LPKR’s debt maturity profile.
The launch generated a very positive reception among investors with the issuance of the bond being oversubscribed by 4.5 times and having an order book of $1.45 billion.
John Riady, CEO of LPKR, commented: “We are very pleased to see that our new five-year bond attracted significant investor interest and was significantly oversubscribed.” John added “the bond demonstrates investors’ conviction in LPKR’s financial strength. We will use the proceeds toward paying off our 2022 bonds, meaning we will have limited debt due until 2025.” He continued, “This latest success illustrates investors’ faith in LPKR as a strong franchise with a trusted history of repaying its debts to domestic and overseas lenders.”
This latest bond issuance is supported by global book runners Credit Suisse, BNP Paribas and Deutche Bank.
