GRENKE: Successful debut of the first green bond issue 

Record volume of EUR 500 million marks first-time achievement of benchmark level

CEO Hirsch: “We have reached the next level” 

Baden-Baden, September 22, 2023: The GRENKE Group, a global financing partner for small and medium-sized enterprises, yesterday placed its first bond exclusively for the refinancing of sustainable lease objects. The issue volume of this first GRENKE Green Bond (ISIN XS2695009998) amounted to approximately EUR 500 million, reaching the highest issue volume for a bond in the leasing specialist’s more than 40-year history. Demand for this issue significantly exceeded supply. The bond’s interest coupon is 7.875 percent p.a., and it matures in 3.5 years by April 6, 2027.

“With this transaction, we have achieved two milestones at once,” emphasises CEO Dr Sebastian Hirsch. “With our first Green Bond, we are providing targeted support for the green transformation of SMEs in the more than 30 countries we operate in. At the same time, we have managed to rise to the benchmark class for the first time. This is important for our planned future growth and means, that we have reached the next level”. Starting at an issue volume of EUR 500 million, a bond is considered a benchmark bond and can become a member of a capital market index.

The GRENKE Green Bond is what is called a “use of proceeds” bond, meaning that the proceeds are earmarked for the refinancing of what are considered to be sustainable objects, from areas such as renewable energy, energy efficiency, sustainable mobility, and resource and waste management. Currently, the eBike business accounts for roughly 80 percent of GRENKE’s Green Bond portfolio. The remaining volume is distributed among photovoltaic and solar installations, charging infrastructure, LED lighting and drinking water installations. The funds will be used for the existing Green Economy business and its expansion. 

GRENKE’s first green bond was purchased primarily by institutional investors, including asset managers, funds, banks, insurers and pension funds. The regional focus of the offering was Europe, with purchases of the issue made mainly by investors from Germany, the United Kingdom, Austria and Switzerland. With a minimum investment volume of just EUR 1,000, GRENKE’s debut issue is also appealing to private investors.
