Slovenia preparing issue of two bonds

Ljubljana, 04 January (STA) - The Finance Ministry has initiated proceedings for the issue of two new euro bonds as Slovenia continues the tradition of tapping markets very early in the year.

The ministry said on Tuesday it had mandated Barclays, BNP Paribas, Commerzbank, Deutsche Bank, Goldman Sachs Bank Europe SE and J.P. Morgan to lead manage a dual-tranche transaction consisting of a new 4-year benchmark due 2026 and 40-year benchmark due 2062.

Overall, the treasury is expected to borrow EUR 5.5 billion this year, according to a budget financing programme adopted by the government in early December.

Last year the treasury tapped the market in early January, when it issued a new ten-year bond to the tune of EUR 1.75 billion and extended the existing 30-year bond issue by another EUR 250 million. Another round of borrowing ensued in late January.
