CREDIT BANK OF MOSCOW announces tender results
CREDIT BANK OF MOSCOW (the “Bank”) announces tender results in respect of two Eurobond issues by CBOM Finance p.l.c. (the “Issuer”): the U.S.$600,000,000 7.500% Loan Participation Notes due 2027 and the U.S.$700,000,000 8.875% Perpetual Callable Loan Participation Notes. The notes were issued in 2017 for the purposes of financing subordinated loans for the Bank. Tender offers were launched to noteholders on 16 July 2018 in order to decrease the Bank’s cost of capital, optimise its capital structure and provide a degree of liquidity to noteholders.
The Bank announced initially its willingness to repurchase up to U.S.$100,000,000 in aggregate principal amount of the notes. However, on 10 August 2018, due to the market volatility, the tender terms were amended and the initial maximum tender amount was decreased to U.S.$50,000,000 in aggregate principal amount across both series of notes combined. The notes tendered at or prior to the early tender time and not validly withdrawn, will be accepted for purchase in priority (subject to pro-ration) and no notes tendered after will be accepted for purchase.
