VTB announces pricing of its Singapore dollar Eurobond issue
16 July 2012
On July 13, 2012, JSC VTB Bank ("VTB") successfully priced a Eurobond offering of SGD 400 million 4% Notes due 2015 (the "Notes") to be issued under its Programme No.2 for the Issuance of Loan Participation Notes for the sole purpose of funding a loan to VTB (the "Offering").
Despite softer markets, dominated by uncertainty and mixed news flow amid summer slowdown, VTB was successful in capturing a moment of calmness to price the Offering and to continue fulfulling its funding plan for the current year.
Excellent investor response enabled VTB to achieve its pricing and size targets. The Notes will be issued to high quality accounts of Asset Managers, Private Banks and Banks. With local investors driving demand the transaction represents an important step in continued diversification of the Bank's funding sources in exotic markets.
OCBC and VTB Capital are Joint Lead Managers for the Offering. The Notes will be admitted to trading on the Irish Stock Exchange.
Deputy Chairman and CFO of JSC VTB Bank Herbert Moos said: "This transaction is an important milestone in the continuing efforts of VTB to expand and diversify its global investor base. This issue builds on the success of VTB's previous deals in local Asian currency markets and is the third transaction in SGD dollars, firmly establishing VTB as a welcome and regular Issuer in this region. The deal comes in line with our plans to tap new pools of attractively priced capital across the globe".
