VTB Capital has been mandated as a joint bookrunner and joint lead manager on the placement of CNH 1 billion offshore renminbi bonds in the Reg-S format for Beijing Capital Company Limited, to be listed on the Hong Kong Stock Exchange and priced with a coupon of 4.7% and a three-year maturity.
Damian Chunilal, CEO Asia for VTB Capital, said: “Beijing Capital Co., Ltd. is one of China’s largest domestic water suppliers and enjoys strong links to the Chinese government. We were delighted to be chosen to underwrite this financing. Our recent successes in USD and CNY issuances demonstrate Chinese state-owned and private sector companies’ growing trust in VTB Capital’s DCM capabilities. We continue to be committed to strengthening our business in the region as indicated by this important transaction.”
Andrey Solovyev, Global Head of DCM at VTB Capital, commented: “We are delighted that VTB Capital’s strong DCM track record has allowed us to successfully enter the Asian market. This bond placement has attracted solid interest from investors and marks a significant milestone for VTB Capital’s international expansion.”
Beijing Capital Co., Ltd. is listed on the Shanghai Stock Exchange and is one of the largest water service companies in China.
The placement marks VTB Capital’s second DCM deal in the Asian market in the past few weeks. In May, VTB Capital became the only Russian investment bank mandated as a joint lead manager and joint bookrunner in the placement of a USD 300 million Reg-S high-yield bond issue for Logan Property Holdings, one of the leading players in the Chinese real estate market. VTB Capital participated in the placement alongside a syndicate of other leading investment banks including Deutsche Bank, Citigroup, HSBC, Goldman Sachs, J.P. Morgan and others.
