The dual-tranche issue was particularly well received by investors. Due to the volume and quality of investor demand (orderbook over EUR 6 Bn), the respective spreads at launch were set at the bottom of the initial price-guidance (respectively 28bp and 50bp over mid-swap rate on the 5 and 10 year tranche), and the final size of the bond issue was increased from initial €1.5Bn to €2.5Bn. This transaction underlines bond investors’ confidence in the credit quality of Saint-Gobain, whose last issuance on the Euro bond market was in May 2006.
