EMTN Programme

bLEND bonds in issue

bLEND Funding PLC raises debt exclusively through its EMTN programme to on-lend to registered housing associations throughout the United Kingdom. bLEND has to date issued 4 series of notes with maturities ranging from 2034 to 2061.

bLEND also has the option to retain bonds from issuances to sell into the market at a later date. These will always be allocated to a specific borrower that has a signed loan agreement and intends to borrow these funds at a future date.

bLEND can also facilitate deferred drawdowns for borrowers with signed loan agreements by signing a forward purchase agreement with one or more investors to sell retained bonds with a forward settlement date. This will always be to fund a drawdown to a specific borrower who, under the terms of their loan agreement, has made an irrevocable commitment to draw down the funds on the forward settlement date.

In the event that bLEND is unable to find an investor that can offer deferred draw down, bLEND is able to issue retained bonds on a spot settlement basis, investing the proceeds with a suitable deposit counterparty and on-lending them to the borrower in up to 12 months time. This will always be to fund a drawdown to a specific borrower who, under the terms of their loan agreement, has made an irrevocable commitment to draw down the funds on a specific forward date on terms agreed at the outset.
