Henderson Land Development Company Limited
HK$13.8 Billion 4-Year & 5-Year Term Loan / Revolving Credit Facility

(6th January 2014, Hong Kong) Henderson Land Development Company Limited (“Henderson Land” or the “Company” (stock code: 12.HK)), one of the leading property companies in Hong Kong, announced that it signed a HK$13.8 billion 4-year and 5-year term and revolving credit facility with 19 leading international and local banks, with eight banks taking part as mandated lead arrangers and bookrunners.
 
The transaction is split evenly between four and five years in maturity, each with equal term and revolving credit tranches, and the borrowing entity is Henderson Land Credit (2014) Limited. It was very well-received by the banking community, achieving a total of HK$13.8 billion, which is 2.75 times the Company’s initial target size of HK$5 billion. This is the largest syndicated loan ever concluded by Henderson Land. The yield for top-level participating banks was fixed at an all-in pricing of 132bp for a blended life of 4.5 years. This unsecured facility refinances a HK$10 billion syndicated loan signed in January 2011 that will expire later this month.
 
This landmark transaction gives a strong vote of confidence and endorsement in Henderson Land’s outstanding results and prospects by its relationship banks. By concluding favourable loan pricing and obtaining a flexible structure to include revolving credit limit to cater for its refinancing needs, this loan transaction further enhances Henderson Land’s capital structure while at the same time giving an impetus to the Hong Kong loan market at the beginning of 2014.
