Witan Investment Trust plc Announces Fixed Rate Note Borrowing

Witan Investment Trust plc has agreed to issue a £21 million fixed rate 20 year secured private placement note at a coupon of 3.29% and a £54 million fixed rate 30 year secured private placement note at a coupon of 3.47%. The purpose of this transaction is to obtain fixed rate long dated Sterling denominated financing at a pricing level that the company considers attractive, and is expected to enhance long term investment performance. The principal repayment dates will be 1 June 2035 and 2045. Total structural borrowing including the notes will increase from £111.4 million to £186.4 million following completion of this transaction. The issue has taken account of the due repayment date on its £44.6 million 8.5% Debenture, which is October 2016, following which the company's structural borrowings will be £141.8 million. In the near-term, the proceeds will be mainly used to repay short-term borrowings (currently £55 million). The weighted average interest payable on the company's structural borrowings will decrease from 7.0% to 5.6% as at the date of funding and will further decrease to 4.6% following the due repayment of the Debenture in October 2016.
