MANILA, Philippines – Humiram ang administrasyong Marcos ng $2 billion (₱117 billion) mula sa international investors na itinuturing na first-ever global bond float nito.

Kinumpirma ng Bureau of the Treasury (BTr) na ang inalok na multi-tranche ay kinabibilangan ng Securities and Exchange Commission-registered fixed rate global bonds na may “maturities of five, 10.5, and 25 years.”

Ang transaksyon ay inaasahan na mapa-plantsa sa Oktubre 13.

“The 5- and 10.5-year bonds fetched coupon rates of 5.17% and 5.609%, respectively. They were also priced 35 basis points tighter than the US Treasury’s initial pricing of +120 bp and +185 bp,” ayon sa ulat.

“The 25-year bonds, which were issued under the country’s Sustainable Finance Framework, had a yearly 5.95% interest rate. It was also priced at 6.100%, 45 bps tighter than the US Treasury’s initial price guidance. The bond float secured ratings of Baa2 from Moody’s Investors Service, BBB+ from S&P Global Ratings, and BBB from Fitch Ratings,” ayon pa rin sa ulat.

Sinabi ng BTr na ang proceeds mula sa 5- at 10.5-year bonds ay gagamitin para sa “general purposes, including budgetary support.”

“Just as we were able to deftly capture a good execution window amid a daunting volatile market environment to attain our financing objectives at favorable cost, we too shall rise above the present difficulties through our eight-point economic blueprint toward differentiating ourselves as the prime destination of choice among quality-conscious investor,” ang wika naman ni National Treasurer Rosalia de Leon.
