Jordan sold $750 million of five-year bonds paying a coupon of 3.875 percent, Finance Minister Mohammad Abu Hammour said in a phone interview today.
The government increased yesterday’s sale from an initially planned $500 million as investors demanded four times the amount of securities on offer, Abu Hammour said. The sale was managed by JPMorgan Chase & Co., Credit Suisse Group AG, HSBC Holdings Plc and Jordan’s Arab Bank Plc.
