Münchener Hypothekenbank eG has given legal notice that it will terminate its silent participation with Isar Capital Funding I LP effective December 31, 2014. The silent participation has a value of € 100 million and will be repaid as contractually agreed on June 30, 2015. Furthermore, a bond issued by Isar Capital Funding I LP (ISIN DE000A1APTA4) will also be repaid on the same date.
Pursuant to the terms of the Capital Requirements Regulation (CRR), the silent participation of Isar Capital Funding I LP will only be recognised as additional core capital for a transitional period. In view of these facts, MünchenerHyp timely terminated its participation agreement with Isar Capital Funding I LP today.
