領展的可轉換債券已獲得香港品質保證局的綠色金融認證計劃認證

Cementing its place as a global pioneer in green financing, Link’s recent green convertible bond issuance marked a first for the real estate sector worldwide and Hong Kong issuers. Raising HK$4 billion at 1.6% per annum due 2024, the lowest coupon rate achieved by an Asian REIT over the past five years, the green convertible bonds have received an “A” rating from S&P. The proceeds will be used to refinance or fund Link’s existing and future eligible green projects. The bonds were allocated to a balanced mix of Asian and European investors.

CEO George Hongchoy said, “The convertible bond issuance will help replenish our maturing facilities, diversify our funding sources and expand our investor base. We are delighted to work with like-minded investors to promote and improve corporate sustainability performance as well as build thriving, low-carbon communities.”

領展發行綠色可轉換債券,為全球房地產行業及香港上市企業首例,彰顯其於國際綠色金融的領先地位。該批2024年到期的40億港元債券獲標準普爾給予「A」評級,固定年息率1.6%,為五年來亞洲房託債券中之最低。債券集資所得款項將為現存及將來的綠色項目提供資金,或用於項目的再融資。有關債券已均衡地配售予亞洲及歐洲的投資者。

行政總裁王國龍表示:「可轉換債券將有助補充我們將到期的融資,並擴闊資金來源及投資者基礎。我們很高興與理念相同的投資者合作,促進和提升企業可持續發展的表現,並建立蓬勃發展的低碳社區。」
