It was initially released Wednesday at 5.5%. High investor demand allowed Sberbank to bring the guidance down. HSBC, JP Morgan and Sberbank CIB arranged the issue.

In August the bank reopened the 5-year deal and sold a $300m tap at 3.95%. In February the bank also priced a CHF 410m 3.5-year bond carrying a 3.1% coupon.
