VTB Capital secured the top position in the Thomson Reuters Russian debt capital markets league table in 1H 2016. According to the rankings, based on the volume of deals, VTB Capital arranged 16 DCM transactions with deal volume of USD 3,389 bn. VTB Capital secured a market share that is almost twice as high as its closest competitor and amounts to 39.4%.
Additionally, Bloomberg has named VTB Capital #1 bookrunner for Eastern European bonds for 1H 2016 in its latest league tables. During 1H2016, VTB Capital executed 29 deals for Eastern European-domiciled companies with a total volume of $3,87 bn, far ahead of the nearest peer.
Andrey Solovyev, Global Head of DCM at VTB Capital, said: “VTB Capital’s top positions in the rankings highlight the investment bank’s exceptionally strong track record in domestic and international debt markets. In May 2016, we were mandated as the sole lead manager and bookrunner on the first Russian sovereign Eurobond since 2013. Despite the challenging market conditions, VTB Capital managed to successfully execute this landmark transaction and attract a diversified international investor base. Moreover, over the last several months we have assisted EVRAZ, “Sovcomflot”, GTLK in coming to the debt markets and were one of the lead managers and bookrunners on the Republic of Cyprus’ second sovereign Eurobond placement since 2014. We expect DCM market pick-up to continue and already have a number of deals in the pipeline with our international and Russian clients”.
