On October 6, 2010, VTB priced its Eurobond offering of U.S.$1 billion (“Offering”) under Programme No.2 for the Issuance of Loan Participation Notes.
The U.S.$1 billion Notes due 2020 will be issued by VTB Capital S.A., Luxembourg, and listed on the Irish Stock Exchange. The coupon is fixed at 6.551%, which represents a spread of 410 bps. over the MidSwaps rate at the moment of pricing. Deutsche Bank, Citigroup and VTB Capital are Joint Lead Managers for the Offering.
The Deputy Chairman and CFO of JSC VTB Bank Herbert Moos said: “The transaction generated strong investor demand. The order book was 3 times oversubscribed. Demand has been driven by interest from U.S. and European investors; at the same time the share of Asian investors in VTB bond allocations continues to grow. The bond was priced 10 bps. inside VTB’s secondary curve. VTB established a new 10-year yield benchmark for its international debt obligations in line with its strategy to decrease the cost of international capital markets funding.”
