Heerlen, NL, 19 Sep 2016 18:00 CEST

Royal DSM, a global science-based company active in health, nutrition and materials, announces the successful launch of a €750 million bond, with a ten-year maturity due in 2026, at a coupon of 0.75%.

The new bond issue takes advantage of favorable market conditions and allows the company to lock in low interest rates taking into account the maturing of a €750 million bond in 2017.

The terms are laid down in the €4 billion Debt Issuance Program of Royal DSM, the final terms and the supplements thereto.

The re-offer price was 99.799%. Based on this price the yield is 0.771%. The bond will be listed on Euronext Amsterdam shortly.
