Bank Delaying Eurobond

Rosselkhozbank decided to postpone a possible eurobond issue after a series of investor meetings earlier this month due to weak markets, a banking source said Monday.

The state-owned lender picked Citigroup, JPMorgan and VTB Capital to arrange meetings with investors from May 9 to gauge demand for a eurobond issue, a banking source said in May.

Rosselkhozbank had hoped to benefit from positive risk sentiment toward emerging markets. "The bank had held investor meetings but did not even open the book. … Markets are not very favorable, [it] will wait till conditions improve," the source said Monday.


… 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.
