UNILEVER ISSUES SWISS FRANC BOND
Unilever N.V. launched a Swiss Franc bond of CHF 500 million today.
The bond carries a coupon of 3.375% and has a maturity of 4 years. The issue
will be documented under Unilever's debt issuance programme. Lead manager for
the issue is UBS Warburg.
Unilever Group Treasurer Jan Haars commented: 'I am pleased that yet again we
have been able to make a very successful issue lead-managed by one of our
close relationship banks. The Swiss debt market has always been important to
Unilever and it is good once again to provide the Swiss investors with a bond
in their own currency.'
