ARARATBANK announces 12th issue of AMD coupon bonds with 13% yield and 2-year maturity   

ArmInfo. ARARATBANK has placed the 12th issue of its AMD coupon bonds in the amount of 400 mln AMD with a 13% yield and 2-year maturity. Deputy CEO of ARARATBANK David Harutyunyan said at today's press conference that the given issue includes 40 thsd non-documentary bonds with a nominal value of 10,000 AMD each and quarterly coupon payments.  Harutyunyan said that this is the 6th issue in terms of Armenian dram. He added that the initial placement will be on 11-22 July 2016. The secondary placement on NASDAQ OMX ARMENIA will take place after the listing.

When replying to ArmInfo's question, Harutyunyan said that the funds received from the sale of the 12th issue will be spent on SME financing. He added that the 13% yield meets the market trends and is set as a result of monitoring of the market of government bonds and the public opinion poll of the potential customers. "Both individuals and legal entities can acquire bonds. ARARATBANK is the operator of the Central Depository of Armenia and has an opportunity to open personal accounts for their customers, which considerably reduces the time of purchase and sale of securities," Harutyunyan said. He added that individuals are mostly (95%) interested in USD bonds, while AMD bonds enjoy the demand of legal entities. Besides purchase and sale of bonds, the market participants will also have an opportunity to conclude REPO transactions.

Harutyunyan also told ArmInfo that the 13th issue of bonds is scheduled for autumn 2016. However, it is not yet known whether the bonds will be issued in terms of AMD or USD.
