Japan Spurs Borrowing Rush

Corporate borrowers are in a hurry to test debt markets for possible eurobond issues, worrying that Japan's nuclear crisis could soon close a borrowing opportunity, banking sources said Tuesday.

Promsvyazbank, ranked among Russia's top 10 lenders by assets, plans a three-year eurobond issue this week along with Renaissance Securities' five-year eurobond placement.

Steelmaker Evraz plans to start a roadshow Wednesday to test the market for its upcoming eurobond issue. Evraz is eyeing a "long paper" maturing in the next six-seven years and is likely to raise at least $1 billion.

… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.

Your support, no matter how small, makes a world of difference. If you can, please support us monthly starting from just $2. It's quick to set up, and you can be confident that you're making a significant impact every month by supporting open, independent journalism. Thank you.
