NTMA details bond plans for 2015
22 Dec 2014 16:04
The National Treasury Management Agency says it intended to issue between €12bn and €15bn worth of long-term bonds next year.
-
The agency, which has already raised €8bn in funding for 2015, said it would issue a statement at the start of each quarter next year to outline its funding plans for the period.
-
It said it would also continue to regularly issue Treasury Bills, and planned to hold at least one syndicated bond deal in 2015.
-
In addition to these auctions, the NTMA said it hoped to swap some of its 4.6% Treasury Bond - which is due to mature in April 2016 - for longer-dated bonds, subject to market conditions.
-
Separately, the NTMA has announced the cancellation of €500m worth of bonds relating to the Irish Bank Resolution Corporation.
-
The Irish Floating Rate Treasury Bond was issued as part of an arrangement that saw the Anglo Irish Bank promissory note replaced with new debt.
-
Its issuance was part of the process that has ultimately led to IBRC’s liquidation.
-
Today the NTMA purchased €500m worth of the bond - which was due to mature in mid-2038 - from the Central Bank.
-
It said the cancellation of this amount will leave €1.5bn worth of the bond outstanding.
