Subscriptions for BEST bonds worth a total of PLN 60 million have already reached the subscription limit on the first day of subscriptions. This means that subscriptions are closing today and all subscriptions are subject to reduction.
Once again, the offering of BEST bonds has closed early, this time due to the very high demand for the series R3 bonds. Due to the fact that the subscriptions already exceeded the number of bonds offered on the first subscription day, we are ending the subscription today, on 3 March, instead of 16 March, as originally planned. Furthermore, according to the final terms of issue, all subscriptions will be reduced proportionately.
Similarly, the subscription period for series R2 bonds offered in January was also shortened.
Within the current issue BEST offers investors 600,000 series R3 bonds with a nominal value of PLN 100 each, totalling PLN 60 million. These 4.5-year bonds (to be redeemed in September 2021) carry a variable interest rate, amounting to WIBOR 3M plus a 3.3% margin, yielding more than 5% per annum in the first interest period.
BEST’s bonds under the current second programme of the public bond issue are offered by the brokerage firm Dom Maklerski PKO Banku Polskiego. A novel feature was the establishment of a distribution consortium of brokerage houses accepting subscriptions. As before, subscriptions for BEST’s series R3 bonds are accepted by the brokerage firm Dom Maklerski PKO Banku Polskiego and additionally by Biuro Maklerskie Alior Banku S.A. and Dom Maklerski Banku Handlowego S.A. In total, they operate nearly 250 branches across the country.
