Treasury sells P30B in 10-yr reissued bonds

The Bureau of the Treasury on Tuesday raised P30 billion from reissued 10-year bonds despite higher bids.

The debt paper maturing on July 9, 2030, was fully awarded at an average annual rate of 4.614 percent.


Bid rates ranged between a 4.35 percent and a high of 4.7 percent.

When this treasury bond was first issued in July last year, it fetched a coupon of 2.875 percent. Last month, it was reissued at only 3.066 percent.


National Treasurer Rosalia de Leon said the IOUs were awarded at a rate which was “aligned with market pricing.”

Despite the higher rate, De Leon said the Treasury needed to provide a benchmark for the long end of the curve, citing that investors like insurance and pension funds “need long-term assets to match their portfolio.”

The auction was oversubscribed with tenders hitting P53.9 billion.

With Tuesday’s full award, the total outstanding volume for this bond series with a remaining life of nine years and three months stood at P120 billion to date.

Last Monday, the Treasury also sold an additional P5 billion in 364-day T-bills through its tap facility as the 11 government securities eligible dealers (GSEDs)-market makers tendered P5.08 billion.
