Brazil to Sell More 2021, 2041 Bonds This Year, Treasury's Valle Says
Brazil plans to sell more of its dollar bonds due in 2021 and 2041 this year, Deputy Treasury Secretary Paulo Valle said.
The government will tap international debt markets if conditions remain favorable, Valle told reporters in New York today.
“In the last weeks, it already improved a lot,” Valle said.
The yield on Brazil’s $788 million of 4.875 percent bonds due in 2021 has dropped 21 basis points, or 0.21 percentage point, this month to 4.94 percent, according to JPMorgan Chase & Co. Brazil, which sold the securities in April, plans to increase the size of the issue to at least $1.5 billion, Valle said.
The country’s $1.28 billion of 5.625 percent notes due in 2041 yield 5.73 percent, down 16 this month. Brazil sold the bonds in September.
