On April 13, 2016, Kennedy Wilson Europe Real Estate plc (“KWE,” LSE: KWE) announced a draw down under its Euro Medium Term Note Programme (the “Programme”) that it established in November 2015, with the issuance of €150 million aggregate principal amount of senior unsecured notes due 2025 (the “Notes”). The Notes will be consolidated and form a single series with the €400 million 3.25% notes due 2025 that KWE issued in November 2015. The transaction is currently expected to close on or around April 19, 2016.

The Notes will be issued at a yield of 3.039% and will mature on November 12, 2025. The Notes, along with KWE and the Programme, are rated BBB (outlook stable) by Standard & Poor’s. On or about the closing date, the Notes are expected to be listed on the official list of the London Stock Exchange and admitted to trading on its regulated market. The Notes will rank pari passu with KWE’s outstanding senior unsecured bonds.

Kennedy-Wilson Holdings, Inc. (the “Company”) currently owns approximately 20.27% of the total issued share capital of KWE. A wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company incorporated in Jersey also serves as KWE’s external manager pursuant to an investment management agreement.
