UAE. Aabar Investments PJSC, an investment unit of the Abu Dhabi government, said it plans to raise 750 million euros (US$1 billion) in a sale of bonds exchangeable for shares of Daimler AG. (DAI)

The five-year notes will pay a coupon of 3.5% to 4% and can be handed over for stock in the Stuttgart, Germany-based carmaker when the shares rise 30% from the current market price, Aabar said in a statement today. The issuer has retained the option of settling the securities in cash, it said,

“Aabar is taking advantage of the current market conditions and the attractive financing the equity-linked market currently offers,” the Abu Dhabi-based company said.

Partnerships with Daimler in Tesla Motors Inc. (TSLA) and in motor racing are unaffected by the transaction, it said.

The deal is being managed by Bank of America Merrill Lynch, Deutsche Bank AG and Morgan Stanley, according to the statement.
