New York City Said to Begin $695 Million Tax-Exempt Bond Sale

March 3 (Bloomberg) -- New York City began offering $695 million of tax-exempt general obligations to individuals today in its first bond sale since Mayor Bill de Blasio took office on Jan. 1.

The deal includes a portion maturing in March 2034 that is being offered at a preliminary yield of 4.125 percent, according to four people familiar with the sale who requested anonymity because the pricing isn’t final. The bonds are rated AA, the third-highest level from Standard & Poor’s.

The initial yield is about 0.82 percentage point more than benchmark munis, data compiled by Bloomberg show.
