Our Corporate & Investment Banking division scored important deals in the very first days of the year — proving we are always close to our clients
UniCredit was the only Italian-headquartered bank among the bookrunners for the placement of a new 15-year BTP on 5th January. The €10 billion issue by the Italian Treasury recorded a record demand of over €105 billion.
The following day, this time on the equity market, the bank made a decisive contribution to the success of the accelerated book building for Delivery Hero, a key UniCredit client in the tech industry. The company raised €1.2 billion on the Frankfurt Stock Exchange in just a few hours to finance general corporate purposes as well as potential investment opportunities for further growth.
UniCredit supported Delivery Hero as joint bookrunner, demonstrating once again the strength of its ECM franchise with its unique distribution power thanks to the strategic partnership with Kepler Cheuvreux. As a result of our unique and broad investor access, UniCredit Kepler Cheuvreux generated demand of approximately €4.4 billion.
“The extraordinary and unprecedented situation that we find ourselves in has shown even more that we must work as One Team and has led to even stronger synergies between our commercial banking networks and CIB” observed the Group's Co-CEO of Western Europe, Olivier Khayat. "The pandemic has also imposed radical changes on banks in the way they relate to their customers. Since last March, UniCredit has proven that it is always open for business and close to its customers to support them in their needs. We have shown that we can be part of the solution thanks to the special combination of our deep local roots and international dimension.”
