VTB Capital has successfully placed a VTB Bank SGD 400mn Eurobond issue with a 2 year maturity. The coupon is set at 4.2% per annum. The securities will be listed on the Singapore Exchange.
The Eurobond issue placement translates into the largest transaction in SGD in 2010 by foreign issuer. The deal generated strong demand, making it possible to significantly increase the issue size. Investors from Singapore, Hong Kong and other Asia Pacific countries as well as Europe participated in the transaction.
Andrey Solovyev, Global Head of Debt Capital Markets at VTB Capital, said: “The VTB Bank SGD Eurobond is the first issue out of Russia in Singapore markets. This transaction paves way for other strong Russian issuers to access this new funding market. In the near future we are planning to continue working in this market with our clients.”
