FastNews reports that Fidelity Bank plc (“Fidelity Bank” or the “Bank”) announced today the redemption of the $400,000,000.00 Eurobond Notes due October 17, 2022.

This online platform understands that on October 17, 2017, the bank successfully issued a US$400 million 5-year Eurobond. The transaction also included a Tender Offer (the “Tender Offer” or “Offer”) for the refinancing of the Bank’s US300million Senior Unsecured Notes issued in May 2018. The transaction was the largest combined new issue & liability management offering ever by a Nigerian issuer and was well received by analysts and investors.

The transaction which was managed by Citigroup Incorporated, Renaissance Capital, and Standard Bank Group Limited achieved an oversubscribed order book of $630million. Upon final maturity of the Eurobond, noteholders received a total of US$421 million covering the principal amount and the accrued 6 months coupon in line with the executed Trust Deeds.

According to the Bank’s MD/CEO; Nneka Onyeali-Ikpe, “the liquidation of the notes despite the strong headwinds in the domestic economy – especially when viewed against the backdrop of short dollar supply, is a testament to the strong liquidity position of the bank and the resilience of our balance sheet”.
