Metrobank to Issue New 7-year Tranche of LTNCDs
Metropolitan Bank & Trust Company (Metrobank or the Bank) is issuing a new 7-year
tranche of Long Term Negotiable Certificates of Deposits (LTNCDs).
The public offer period for the LTNCDs is from November 4 to 14, 2014. The Bank, however,
reserves the right to adjust the timing of the offer period as necessary.
The LTNCDs will be offered at a rate of 4.25% per annum, payable quarterly. The LTNCDs
have a tenor of 7 years and will mature on November 21, 2021. The minimum investment size
is PHP50,000 with increments of PHP50,000 thereafter.
This is the second offering of LTNCDs by Metrobank. The Bank successfully raised PHP8
billion of 5.5 year LTNCDs last October. The strong demand for the initial LTNCD tranche
prompted the Bank to launch a follow-on 7-year LTNCD to satisfy unmet client demand.
Metrobank earlier received Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas (BSP) approval for an LTNCD program
of up to PHP20 billion, to be issued in tranches with approved tenors ranging from 5.25-year up
to 10-years. The Bank has up to the first quarter of 2015 to complete the program.
Metrobank mandated The Hongkong and Shanghai Banking Corporation Limited (HSBC) and
ING Bank N.V., Manila Branch (ING) as Joint Lead Arrangers and Selling Agents for this
transaction. Metrobank, First Metro Investment Corporation (FMIC) and Multinational
Investment Bancorporation (MIB) will also serve as Selling Agents for the offer. MIB will act as
Market Maker for secondary trading of the LTNCDs while the instrument is not yet listed on the
Philippine Dealing and Exchange Corp. (PDEx) platform.
Interested investors may approach any of the selling agents during the public offer period.
