About Notes Redemption

  • Why is ST Engineering redeeming the U.S.$500,000,000 4.80 per cent. Notes due 2019 (the “Notes”) before maturity?

    The redemption of the outstanding Notes immediately reduces the Group’s capital employed. The early redemption will also improve the Group’s EVA, cash flow and financial performance for the period from July 2018 to July 2019. 

  • Why redeem the Notes at this time?

    The recent rise in US Treasury yield has resulted in favourable conditions for the Group to redeem the Notes in accordance with the terms and conditions of the Notes.

  • Do you plan to terminate the U.S.$1,200,000,000 Multicurrency Medium Term Note Programme (the “MTN Programme”)?

    No. We do not intend to terminate the MTN programme.

  • Will you issue further tranches under the MTN Programme?

    The Group continues to assess and review its liquidity needs against the best funding options available in the market including revolving credit facilities, short-term loans or issuance under the MTN Programme.

  • Is there a validity period for the MTN Programme?

    There is no validity period for the MTN programme. We can issue notes up to US$1.2 billion as long as the outstanding notes in aggregate do not exceed US$1.2 billion. The Notes are the only series of notes issued to-date.

  • When are the record dates for payments of the Make Whole Redemption Price and the interest on the Notes?

    The payment of the Make Whole Redemption Price shall be made to persons shown in the records of Euroclear and/or Clearstream, Luxembourg as holders of the Notes as at close of business (Central European Time) on 13 July 2018, being one business day prior to the Redemption Date.

    The payment of interest from (and including) 16 January 2018 to (but excluding) 16 July 2018 shall be made to persons shown in the records of Euroclear and/or Clearstream, Luxembourg as holders of the Notes as at close of business (Central European Time) on 29 June 2018, being fifteen days prior to the Redemption Date.

  • When and how will I as a noteholder receive the payment? What currency is the payment denominated in?

    ST Engineering will pay its paying agent, The Bank of New York Mellon, in US dollars on the Redemption Date, 16 July 2018. Persons shown in the records of Euroclear and/or Clearstream, Luxembourg as holders of the Notes should receive payment in the manner so agreed with Euroclear and/or Clearstream, Luxembourg.
