Singapore, 24 October 2018, 11.15am – Temasek Holdings (Private) Limited (“Temasek”) refers to the announcement dated 16 October 2018 regarding the offer of the T2023-S$ Temasek Bond, comprising up to S$400 million 2.70% guaranteed notes due 2023 (subject to the Upsize Option), to be issued through its wholly-owned subsidiary Temasek Financial (IV) Private Limited (the “Issuer”).

Ms Leong Wai Leng, Chief Financial Officer of Temasek, said, “We would like to thank all the applicants for their support for our T2023-S$ Temasek Bond. We appreciate the confidence they have all shown in us. The demand for both the Public Offer and the Placement was robust, amounting in aggregate to about S$3 billion.

“In particular, we very much welcome members of the public who applied under our inaugural Public Offer. We are pleased to provide Singapore retail investors an opportunity to invest in a Temasek Bond. We very much welcome our first retail investors as a new set of stakeholders for Temasek.”

Upsize of Offer

As stated in the announcement dated 16 October 2018, in the event the Public Offer and/or Placement is oversubscribed, the Issuer and Temasek may exercise the Upsize Option and increase the Total Offering up to no more than S$500 million and determine the final allocation between the Public Offer and Placement, subject to compliance with the Allocation Condition.

In view of the strong demand from retail investors, the Issuer and Temasek have decided to exercise the Upsize Option to increase the issue size by S$100 million for the Public Offer. This is to enable all valid applications under the Public Offer to receive some allocation.

Accordingly, S$500 million in aggregate principal amount of the T2023-S$ Temasek Bond under the Total Offering has been allocated as follows:

(a) Final Placement Size : S$200 million in aggregate principal amount of bonds
(b) Final Public Offer Size : S$300 million in aggregate principal amount of bonds

Bids amounting to about S$1,438,100,000 received under the Placement represent a subscription rate of just over 7 times based on the Final Placement Size. The valid applications amounting to about S$1,675,700,000 received under the Public Offer represent a subscription rate of about 5 times the Final Public Offer Size of S$300 million, or just over 8 times the initial Public Offer Size of S$200 million.

Allocation of Public Offer and Placement

All applicants who submitted valid applications under the Public Offer have been allocated all or a proportion of the bonds they applied for.

Any applicant whose application for the Public Offer bonds was invalid, or who did not receive the full allocation for which they applied, will have their application amounts or the balance (as the case may be, and excluding any non-refundable application or administrative fee) refunded without interest. This will be done by crediting to his or her bank account with DBS, POSB, OCBC or UOB within 24 hours after balloting of the Public Offer bonds.

The allocation results of the Public Offer and the Placement are shown in Appendix A.
