To meet its financing needs, Amprion has a range of tools, which it can use in addition to cash flows from operating activities. The international capital market is of particular significance for Amprion to finance the grid expansion, providing debt capital at favourable conditions and quick access to additional liquidity.
The Debt Issuance Programme (DIP) provides Amprion with long-term latitude in procuring debt capital on the capital market. The DIP is a framework prospectus for the flexible issuance of bonds. Currently, the DIP allows Amprion to make issuances with a total face value of six billion Euro.
By purchasing Amprion bonds, creditors can invest into the sustainable grid expansion and the energy transition in Germany. With their investment, creditors not only participate in the extensive transformation of the power supply network, but also actively support the sustainable conversion of the economy with regards to climate neutrality and CO2-emission reduction
With a Baa1 (negative outlook) and BBB+ (stable outlook) rating by the internationally renowned rating agencies Moody’s and Fitch, Amprion’s creditworthiness is ranked in the “investment grade” category.
In addition to the DIP, Amprion relies on promissory notes, a commercial paper programme and bilateral and syndicated loan agreements for the further procurement of debt capital.
Amprion has started the process to implement a Green Finance Framework, which will be provided here as soon as it is available.
