Panama: Unión Fenosa Will Issue $50 Million

$50 million will be issued in negotiable corporate securities, to finance energy distribution subsidiary Edemet.

The Spanish corporation considers that Panama's securities market provides better conditions than the international market to satisfy Edemet's financing needs.

An article in Capitales.com quotes José Luis Fernández, financial director of the company: "...$50 million will be issued in a five year period, through $10 million issues. The term of the securities, still to be defined, will be between 30 days and a year. The director remarked that they intend to diversify their financing sources".
