Blättchen & Partner publishes SME bond book

Munich | Stuttgart, March 2012. Dr. Konrad Bösl and Peter Thilo Hasler, Board Members of Blättchen & Partner, publish the book “Medium-sized Bonds – A Guide to Practice” at the renowned Springer Gabler-Verlag. As one of Germany’s leading emissions consultants, Blättchen & Partner has won over nearly two dozen well-known capital market experts for its book project.

For a long time, German small and medium-sized enterprises were barred from entering the capital market through the issuance of a bond. Only a small group of selected branded companies were able to place bonds with a volume of less than € 100 million through their own mission. In the wake of the financial market crisis and credit crunch, germany has established its own segments on almost all stock exchanges, offering capital-seeking, medium-sized companies an alternative to house bank credit. The book “Medium-sized Bonds – A Guide to Practice” deals with issues of issuer issues from the perspective of issuers, banks, investors, advisers and the media. The instruments and basic relationships of a bond issue are presented, analysed and explained in a simple and comprehensible manner.
