Guatemala Issues Eurobonds for $500 million

The issuance of $500 million in the international market was placed with a 10-year term and an interest rate of 4.5%, the lowest of all issuances so far.

Thursday, June 1, 2017

From a statement issued by the Ministry of Finance:

The Ministry of Public Finance today concluded a transaction for US $500 million of Eurobonds with an interest rate of 4.5% for 10 years, the lowest rate of all issuances. This action is consistent with the strategy of diversifying the financing of public spending, obtaining funds from the local bond market, multilateral banking and global markets.   

The placement of treasury bonds in the international market highlights the consistent and robust economic profile of the country and the good international valuation of the country, as a result of the good macroeconomic stability that characterizes it, as well as the advances in the fight against corruption, recovery in tax collection and institutional strengthening. 

The transaction was conducted through Citigroup Global Markets Inc, one of three major investment banks in the world, chosen through a competitive process.
