Filinvest Land said it was offering P5 billion worth of unsecured, fixed-rate, peso-denomiated retail bonds, with an oversubscription option of up to P2 billion.
“The bonds are comprised of seven-year fixed rate bonds due in 2020 and/or 10-year fixed rate bonds due 2023,” the filing read.
The bond’s coupon rate, timetable of the offering as well as intended use of proceeds were not stated in the prospectus sent to reporters by the SEC yesterday.
BPI Capital Corp., BDO Capital & Investment Corp., First Metro Investment Corp. and The Hong Kong and Shanghai Banking Corp. Ltd. were appointed issue managers, while East West Banking Corp. was named selling agent.
