The country’s largest lender BDO Unibank Inc. has raised a landmark P40 billion from a new bond offering, the largest bond foray by a local bank in the domestic debt market in a single tranche.

BDO’s issuance was upsized by eight times the original offer of P5 billion, citing robust demand from retail and institutional investors.

The bonds will have a tenor of 2.5 years with a yield of 4.408 percent per annum. Interest will be paid on a quarterly basis.

The one-week offer period ended last January 24, 2020, with issue date set on February 3, 2020.
