The Russia Sovereign Eurobond issue has been named Emerging EMEA Bond of the Year 2012 by IFR magazine. VTB Capital was a joint lead manager of this Eurobond issue.
In March 2012, the Russian Ministry of Finance successfully placed the Russian Sovereign Eurobond totaling USD 7 bn in three tranches with maturities of 5, 10 and 30 years. This release enabled the Russian Ministry of Finance to fully implement the program in 2012.
Alexei Yakovitsky, Global CEO at VTB Capital, noted: "This issue became the largest transaction by volume in the modern history of Russia and the CIS. In particular, the huge demand for the 30-year sovereign Eurobond issue indicates a high level of confidence of global investors in the Russian economy. VTB Capital’s participation in this unique transaction received high appreciation."
Andrey Solovyev, Global Head of DCM at VTB Capital, said: "The award of such a prestigious international magazine is another confirmation of VTB Capital's leading positions both in the domestic and international debt capital markets. Our participation is important for Russian market transactions and indicates a high level of confidence for VTB Capital’s professional and well-coordinated team."
