PTT Global Chemical Pcl, Thailand’s biggest chemicals company by market value, sold $1 billion in 10-year bonds, its first U.S. dollar-offering in more than seven years.
The 4.25 percent securities yield 260 basis points more than similar-maturity Treasuries, according to data compiled by Bloomberg. The bonds, the first dollar-denominated sale from the Bangkok-based company since June 2005, may be rated Baa2 by Moody’s Investors Service, the second-lowest level of investment grade.
The company’s $300 million of 5.5 percent notes due June 2015 traded at 108.1 cents on the dollar to yield 2.49 percent on Aug. 31, Bloomberg data show.
Barclays Plc, Goldman Sachs Group Inc., Royal Bank of Scotland Group Plc and Standard Chartered Plc managed the sale, the data show.
