OAO Magnitogorsk Iron & Steel sold 10 billion rubles ($330 million) of three-year bonds paying a 9.7 percent coupon, according to the company’s spokesman Yevgeny Kovtunov.
The bonds have a two-year put option, Kovtunov said by phone today. A put option is the right, not the obligation, to sell the bond at a certain price.
Magnitogorsk sold 5 billion rubles of three-year bonds paying 9.45 percent on Nov. 19. Those bonds had a put option in one year.
