PT Berau Coal to issue USD 500 million bonds

Monday, 06 Feb 2012

Indonesian coal miner PT Berau Coal Energy Tbk is planning to issue USD 500 million of bonds, at a interest rate of 9% to refinance its debt and fund capital expenditure.

Indonesian companies are readying themselves to jump into the dollar bond market to take advantage of the foreign money they expect to flood the country after Moody's was the second ratings agency to upgrade the country to an investment grade status last month.

Berau Coal will hold an extraordinary general meeting on March 6 for shareholder approval for the notes, which will have a maximum fixed interest rate of 9% and a semi annual coupon.

Berau Coal, controlled by Indonesia-based private equity firm Recapital Advisors, has not yet appointed a financial advisor on the deal.
