VEB Cancels Bond Sale

Vneshekonombank pulled a sale of dollar bonds because of adverse market conditions, according a person with knowledge of the sale.

The lender planned to issue five-year bonds that may have been priced to yield about 5.63 percent. BNP Paribas, JPMorgan Chase, Morgan Stanley and Royal Bank of Scotland Group were hired to manage the sale.
