IIC launches its largest issue in the Eurobond market

04/21/2016

US$ 500 million 3-year Floating Rate Note

The Inter-American Investment Corporation (“IIC”), rated Aa1/AA/AAA (Moody’s/S&P/Fitch), today issued its largest note with a new USD 500 million RegS 3-year Floating Rate, under its EMTN Program.

The new issue carries a coupon of 3 month USD Libor plus 30 basis points and will mature on 26 April 2019. Citigroup, Deutsche Bank, Goldman Sachs International and JPMorgan acted as joint-bookrunners on the deal.

This transaction represents the IIC’s third issue in the Eurobond market after the successful 3-year US$400 million floating rate note issued in September 2014 and the inaugural 3-year US$350 million floating rate note issued in November 2012 and $50million tap. Following this transaction, the IIC has completed 50% of its US$1 billion funding target for 2016. This is the first IIC issue following the IDB Group’s private sector reorganization.

The final order book was oversubscribed with participation from 23 different investors across the globe and with orders totaling over US$500 million. This represents a clear signal from the investor community in support of the IIC. The superior quality of the demand allowed IIC to comfortably launch a US$500 million 3-year floating rate note at the tighter end of the price guidance.

The final distribution of the transaction is reflective of the strong support the IIC has gained following its recent ratings upgrade to Aa1 by Moody’s, with global central banks and official institutions taking up the lion’s share of allocation in the deal.
