I don't quite understand the two "over" here. They seem to mean "more than" or "in exchange for", but I'm not so sure.

I think I've figured it out. "Over" here means "more than".

That part can be interpreted as:

"Yield 2.051% = 73 basis points + 5-year euro swap rate (set on the SES bond issuance date) = 116.7 basis points + yield on German federal government 5-year notes Series 167 (set on the SES bond issuance date)."

Sorry for the jargon in the question and answer.


Here, it means more than or beyond.

Over can also mean

Meaning -- Usage example:

  1. beyond -- Over there

  2. above / on top of -- over the mountains

  3. finished -- The function was over when I reached

  4. about/surrounding -- Jackie, the dog was all over me with joy

  5. more than -- over 1000 years ago

Also, 6 balls make an "Over" in Cricket.
