29th October 2018


In 2018, this event series on the subject of “companies in flux" will again focus on digitization: How are start-ups successfully founded and networked with corporations? How can an automotive supplier grow despite difficult markets and challenges such as electric mobility and autonomous driving? And what is it that makes the analog distribution of a classic kitchen so successful, while the product is becoming more and more digital?

Equity Capital Markets


Berenberg executes a multitude of transactions on the capital market

Having already successfully completed 121 equity placements with a total transaction volume of more than EUR 30bn since the beginning of 2013, Berenberg has once more underlined its outstanding position in Equity Capital Markets (ECM). With 90 ECM transactions in the German speaking region alone since 2013, Berenberg is the #1 investment bank in Equity Capital Markets (by number of issues).

Berenberg is currently involved in the following transactions, while we are also preparing various transactions which are not public yet:

  • Griffin Premium RE.. B.V. (IPO, Joint Global Coordinator/ Joint Bookrunner)

Debt Capital Markets


Debt Capital Markets Team with a successful start in 2017

After a very strong track record last year, Berenberg’s Debt Capital Market Team underpinned its strong markets presence by acting as joint bookrunner for Vonovia’s EUR 1bn BBB+ rated dual tranche 5-year and 10-year bond placement. On the same day, Berenberg priced as joint global coordinator Hapag-Lloyd’s EUR 250m High-Yield Bond placement at a coupon of 6.75%. Hapag-Lloyd’s new issue also saw strong investor demand and was therefore upsized by EUR 100m and priced below the initial price guidance of 7% area.

Also in January, Berenberg successfully placed the debut bond of Sixt Leasing SE in its role as joint bookrunner. The non-rated bond issue with a maturity of 4 years was oversubscribed multiple times and was successfully priced below the initial price guidance. The annual coupon was set at 1.125%.  Furthermore, our team is currently working on several non-public debt and equity-linked transactions which are expected to be closed in due course.

Throughout the last years, Berenberg has successfully expanded its already prominent position in the field of European debt capital markets by successfully originating primary market transactions including bonds, convertible bonds as well as promissory notes (Schuldscheindarlehen).
