The orderbook closed with a more than 2x oversubscription. Geographically, the final allocation was skewed towards German and Austrian investors (ca. 28 percent of the allocation). Fund managers participated with above-average interest in the transaction and were allocated ca. 61 percent of the deal size.

The net debt level of the company will not increase after the issuance of the bond. 'This issuance is another great success for us', says Rachel Empey, CFO of Telefónica Deutschland.
