Amprion, the German electricity transmission firm, launched on Tuesday a €100m Namensschuldverschreibung (NSV) — an instrument with all the qualities of a Schuldschein, except for the issuer’s right to terminate the contract after 10 years.

BayernLB, Helaba and UniCredit are arranging the deal.

The German Civil Code — the legal basis for a Schuldschein — allows an issuer to terminate the contract after 10 years. So, it is rare to see Schuldscheine with longer tenors, as investors are concerned about potential losses.
