Nissan Motor issued its debut Eurobonds in dollars and euro
September 14, 2020
The auto manufacturers have suffered greatly in the face of the coronavirus outbreak, and it was uncertain whether they will be able to return to the bond market soon.
However, the situation improved enough so that a Nissan Motor, a new player with low credit ratings, placed its first $8bn Eurobonds denominated in USD on Thursday, September 10, which was followed by the euro issue of €2bn on Friday, September 11.
All issues were a huge success, especially Eurobonds in euro, on which investor's demands were total of around €12bn, and the spreads closed at 240bp for short notes, 305 bp for the middle-term ones, and 350 bp for the longer-term bonds.
Bookrunners of the deals were Citigroup, JP Morgan, Mizuho Financial Group, and Morgan Stanley.
