Wihlborgs Fastigheter issues a guaranteed covered bond, initially on 300 million SEK on the Swedish market. The duration of the bond is five years. The bond is guaranteed through a joint and several guarantee made by Region Skåne which in its turn has offered real estate in Lund as security. The real estate is rented by Wihlborgs on a twenty year lease.
Region Skåne obtains an annual fee on the guarantee from Wihlborgs for the entire duration of the bond. Wihlborgs will apply for a listing of the bonds at the Nasdaq OMX stock exchange in Stockholm.
Region Skåne has been represented by Moll Wendén in the transaction.
