Koninklijke KPN N.V. announces final results and pricing of its Tender Offer

KPN announces the final results and pricing of the Tender Offer, launched on 30 August 2016. Due to strong interest in the Tender Offer, KPN has decided to increase the notional amount accepted for purchase to EUR 1.0 billion, up from EUR 750 million. KPN finances the Tender Offer with a Eurobond which was also announced and priced on 30 August 2016. The Eurobond offering consists of a EUR 625 million tranche maturing on 9 April 2025 with a 0.625% coupon and a EUR 625 million tranche maturing on 11 September 2028 with a 1.125% coupon. The purpose of these transactions is to further optimize KPN’s debt structure, by extending the average maturity of its debt liabilities and lowering the average coupon level of KPN’s bond portfolio.
