NEITHER THIS ANNOUNCEMENT NOR ANY PART OR COPY OF IT MAY BE TAKEN OR TRANSMITTED INTO THE UNITED STATES, AUSTRALIA, CANADA OR JAPAN, OR DISTRIBUTED DIRECTLY OR INDIRECTLY OR REDISTRIBUTED INTO THE UNITED STATES, AUSTRALIA, CANADA OR JAPAN OR TO ANY RESIDENT THEREOF.
Gunvor Group has successfully priced a USD 500 mil. bond as a part of the company's strategy to diversify and strengthen its financial foundation and long-term capital structure. Strong demand for the offering came from both retail and institutional investors, resulting in a final order book of over $2.75 bil. The significant oversubscription enabled Gunvor to upsize the offering from an originally announced size of $300 mil to $500 mil.
The instrument has a 5-year tenor with a maturity date of 2018, and a 5.875 percent coupon. It is Reg S only, and will be listed on the Singapore Stock Exchange. Credit Suisse, Goldman Sachs International, ING and Societe Generale Corporate and Investment Banking were joint bookrunners.
