Madrid, Jan 25 (.).- The Spanish Public Treasury launched this Wednesday the first syndicated issue of 2023, in which it will place a new ten-year bond, maturing on April 30, 2033.
According to Bloomberg data collected by EFE, the initial profitability of the aforementioned issue is 12 basis points above the current ten-year debt reference.
For today’s issuance, Treasury has mandated Barclays (LON:), BBVA (BME:), Citi, Crédit Agricole (EPA:), JP Moran y Santander (BME:).
The last time the Spanish Treasury launched a syndicated issue -in which a group of banks help to directly place the debt among investors- was on September 20, 2022.
On that occasion, the agency placed 5,000 million euros in a twenty-year bond, with a demand that exceeded 40,600 million euros.
During 2022, the Treasury held four syndicated issuances: two of ten-year debt; one at thirty years, and another at twenty years.
According to the Treasury’s financing strategy for 2023, the body forecasts a net issuance of 70,000 million euros, the same amount as a year earlier, while gross issuance will reach 256,846 million, 10% higher, due to the increase in Amortization.
