Orbit, one of the UK's largest social housing providers with over 44,500 homes, has successfully priced a £300 million 18-year bond issuance at a 2% coupon.

Orbit decided to approach the sterling bond market with its first transaction since 2018.

With the aim of diversifying its existing maturity profile whilst also taking into account the significant investor demand for intermediate social housing issuances, Orbit targeted a benchmark (£250 million) deal in an intermediate tenor range of 15-18 years.

After an intensive day with high levels of investor engagement, the transaction received over £1.75 billion of orders at final guidance.

This indicated an order book that was seven times oversubscribed, reflecting the strength of Orbit's credit standing.
