SINGAPORE – Mapletree Investments Pte Ltd (“Mapletree” or “the Group”)  is pleased to announce that its wholly-owned subsidiary, Mapletree Treasury Services Limited (the “Issuer”), has launched and priced S$600 million principal amount of 3.70% perpetual securities (the “Securities”), to be issued pursuant to its US$5 billion Euro Medium Term Note Programme (“EMTN Programme”). The Securities is the first subordinated fixed for life perpetual issuance in the SGD market, and will be unconditionally and irrevocably guaranteed by Mapletree.

Proceeds from the offering of the Securities will be used by the Group for general corporate purposes.

Ms Wendy Koh, Group Chief Financial Officer of Mapletree said, “Despite the current, challenging climate brought about by Covid-19, we went ahead to launch this first subordinated fixed for life perpetual securities in the SGD market. We are glad that it was well received by investors from both the institutional and high net worth investors. The success is a testament of investors’ recognition of Mapletree’s brand, strong credit and proven financial track record. The Securities issuance will further strengthen Mapletree’s balance sheet and financial flexibility as the Group continues to grow our business globally to deliver consistent high returns to our stakeholders.”
