LONDON--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- ?

SEGRO plc (SEGXF) (?SEGRO?) announces the launch and pricing of a ten year, ?500 million senior unsecured Green bond issue. The bonds, which were eight times oversubscribed, were priced at 55 basis points above euro mid-swaps and have an annual coupon of 0.5 per cent.

This is SEGRO?s first bond in the euro market and its first Green bond, following from the Green bond issued by SEGRO European Logistics Partnership (?SELP?) in May 2021.

The proceeds of the issue will principally be used to finance and/or refinance Eligible Green Projects as outlined in the SEGRO Green Finance Framework, including the continued development programme, as well as providing funding for general corporate purposes.

Soumen Das, SEGRO (SEGXF) Chief Financial Officer, commented:

?We are delighted with the support for SEGRO?s first Green and first euro-denominated bond issue, achieving a 0.5% coupon and 10 year maturity. The level of oversubscription we received for the issuance underlines investors? recognition of the strength of our business and the importance they rightly place on sustainable investment. The proceeds will be invested in line with our Responsible SEGRO framework including the construction of new properties with high sustainability credentials through our very active development programme.?

In general the bond market is volatile, and fixed income securities carry interest rate risk. (As interest rates rise, bond prices usually fall, and vice versa. This effect is usually more pronounced for longer-term securities.) Fixed income securities also carry inflation risk and credit and default risks for both issuers and counterparties. Unlike individual bonds, most bond funds do not have a maturity date, so avoiding losses caused by price volatility by holding them until maturity is not possible.

Lower-quality debt securities generally offer higher yields, but also involve greater risk of default or price changes due to potential changes in the credit quality of the issuer. Any fixed income security sold or redeemed prior to maturity may be subject to loss.

Before investing, consider the funds' investment objectives, risks, charges, and expenses. Contact Fidelity for a prospectus or, if available, a summary prospectus containing this information. Read it carefully.
