First Coupon for MegaFon's Three-Year Bonds Set at 9.95%
The initial guidance for the first coupon was set at 10.2-10.4% per annum, which corresponds to a yield to maturity of 10.46-10.67% per annum. During book building the guidance was lowered to 10-10.2% per annum (yield of 10.25-10.46% per annum) and then to 9.95-10.1% per annum (yield of 10.2-10.36%), and then narrowed to 9.95-10% (yield of 10.2-10.25%).
During marketing overall demand for the bonds exceeded RUB 30 bln. Following book building the first coupon was set at 9.95% per annum, which corresponds to a yield to maturity of 10.2% per annum.
The technical placement of the issue is planned for May 12, 2016. The placement was organised by Sberbank CIB, Gazprombank, Raiffeisenbank and Unicredit Bank.
