TNK-BP Doesn’t See Eurobond Holders Affected by Rosneft Purchase

Oct. 24 (Bloomberg) -- TNK-BP, a venture between BP Plc and a group of billionaires, doesn’t expect Eurobond holders to be hurt by OAO Rosneft’s plan to buy the company for $54.8 billion.

“We do not foresee any potential negative impact on Eurobond holders in situation of the envisaged change of control,” TNK-BP spokeswoman Oksana Gavshina said by e-mail.

Moody’s Investors Service placed TNK-BP’s Baa2 debt rating on review for possible downgrade on a lack of information about the structure of $28 billion of funding for the deal, said Julia Pribytkova, a Russia oil and gas analyst at the rating company.

Rosneft said this week it will buy BP’s 50 percent in TNK-BP for $26.8 billion in cash and shares and has an initial deal to acquire the billionaires’ half for $28 billion in cash.
