AUCTION OF NOMINAL BONDS RIKB 14 0314 & RIKB 16 1013 - EXCHANGE AUCTION
On Friday, 22 June at 11:00 am, Government Debt Management will conduct an
auction of Treasury bonds.
In this auction nominal bonds RIKB 14 0314 and RIKB 16 1013 will be offered.
The total amount of accepted bids will be announced after the auction.
The GDM reserves the right to accept all of the submitted bids, accept part of
them, or reject all of them. Only primary dealers in Treasury securities are
authorised to submit bids in this auction. They also submit bids on behalf of
investors. The minimum amount of each bid is 1 m.kr. nominal value.
The auction will be structured as a single-price auction, which means that all
accepted bids will be sold to primary dealers at the same price. The lowest
accepted price (highest yield) will determine the selling price. In other
respects, reference is made to the Terms of Invitation to Tender, which
accompany this press release.
After the results of the auction are available, the GDM will offer primary
dealers the equivalent of 10% of the nominal value sold in the auction, at the
price of accepted bids, until 14:00 on Tuesday, 26 June 2012. Each primary
dealer that has submitted an accepted bid in the auction has the right to
purchase an amount proportional to its total purchase.
The payment and settlement date is Wednesday, 27 June 2012.
In this auction, the parties have the option of purchasing bonds in RIKB 14
0314 and in RIKB 16 1013 with the sale of RIKB 12 0824, which matures on 24
August 2012. Government Debt Management will purchase RIKB 12 0824 at a
pre-determined price – that is, at a clean price of 99.92 (103.496503 with
accrued interest per 100 nominal value) – with settlement on 27 June 2012. To
clarify, this price is equivalent to 4.594% flat interest. The value of these
securities, together with accrued interest, will constitute payment for the new
