VALYO CELEBRATES ITS FIRST ANNIVERSARY AND CONTINUES AS FIRST-MOVER TO THE NEXT INNOVATION LEAP

The first digital capital market place for the Swiss bond market celebrates its first anniversary. After only twelve months, it is already apparent that Valyo has not only claimed first mover status in the traditional, rather conservative and in part non-transparent bond market, but has also motivated other market providers to rethink their issuing process.

"In a few years a large part of corporate bonds will be issued digitally", Daniel Schwab, CEO and co-founder of Valyo, is convinced.

FIRST DIGITAL BOND ISSUE BY SWISSCOM

Swisscom AG is the first SMI company to issue a bond via a digital capital market platform and benefits from the advantages of digitalisation in the Swiss capital market.

Via Valyo Ltd’s platform, Swisscom AG is issuing a bond for 100 million Swiss francs with a term of eleven years and a coupon of 0.13 percent. The listing of the bond on the SIX Swiss Exchange is scheduled for 16th September 2020.

Many market participants followed the issue live on the platform. The Valyo support team also received registration requests once the deal was announced. The bond was placed with asset managers, banks, pension funds and insurance companies.

BONDS WITHOUT FINANCIAL DINOSAURS

The first digitally issued bond in Switzerland has been listed on the stock exchange. Raiffeisen Switzerland issued, via the Valyo capital market platform, a CHF 112 million bond due in two years and with a coupon of 0%.

The entire issuing process – from recording the transaction via due diligence, bookbuilding, contract processing and settlement to bond listing – was digital from beginning to end.

The issuer and investors were able to follow the bookbuilding process live and in real-time.

This new transparency adds huge value to the previous procedure and offers a high degree of efficiency thanks to the digitalised process.

FIRST BOND ISSUE SUCCESSFULLY EXECUTED!

Valyo AG today conducted its first bond issue via its capital market platform. Raiffeisen Switzerland issued a CHF 112 million bond due in two years and with a coupon of 0%.

Issuers and investors face each other directly on the capital market platform and processed the issue online via the platform, from recording transaction data via bookbuilding, to settlement and arranging the bond listing. Pricing and allocation are transparent and open to all the parties and are not controlled by any intermediary.

LIVE BOOKBUILDING

In live bookbuilding, issuers and investors are directly connected to each other – without any intermediary. This proximity and transparency enables participants to react immediately to changes in the book.

This creates real market prices and the auction becomes an experience for both sides.
