UOB, CapitaLand Collaborate For Singapore’s First Dual Tranche
CapitaLand and United Overseas Bank Limited (UOB) have participated in a two-year dual-tranche funding contract worth $200 million.
In a release, CapitaLand disclosed that the dual-tranche finance references both the Secured Overnight Financing Price (SOFR) as well as the Singapore Overnight Price Average (SORA), making it the very first of its kind within Singapore.
It noted that the rates of interest on the two tranches will certainly be based upon SORA and also SOFR’s everyday worsened averages, both determined in arrears. It included that the earnings of the fundings will be made use of for basic company purposes.
The reciprocal funding center comes ahead of a worldwide change from interbank deal rates to different safe rates, which are much more transparent and also reflective of market conditions.
The relevant governing and sector bodies have actually identified SORA as well as SOFR as “the different benchmark prices to change the Swap Deal Rate (SOR) in Singapore as well as the United States Dollar LIBOR specifically”. The same thing is also applied to Clavon and Woodleigh Residences.
” With our first SORA-SOFR twin tranche framework, CapitaLand remains to proactively plan for the international transition to alternate criteria prices,” claimed Andrew Lim, Team Chief Financial Officer of CapitaLand Group.
” As a worldwide diversified realty business, CapitaLand’s early adoption of these brand-new rates of interest standards across various currencies enables us to collaborate with our vital financial partners such as UOB, to make certain that the Team’s recurring change of our car loan book to alternative criteria prices continues smoothly.”
The cooperation between CapitaLand and also UOB remains in line with the efforts of the Monetary Authority of Singapore to support SORA’s fostering as an essential rate of interest criteria within the city-state and also the growth of durable and also vibrant SORA markets.
