Global law firm White & Case LLP has advised Barclays Bank, Citigroup Global Markets Limited, Deutsche Bank AG, HSBC and Intesa Sanpaolo Group member Všeobecná úverová banka, a.s. (in association with Banca IMI), as lead managers, on the Slovak Republic's double tranche issuance of €2 billion 0.250% notes due 2025 and €2 billion 1.000% notes due 2032.
"With an overall value of €4 billion, this is a largest ever sovereign bond issuance by a Central & Eastern European issuer," said White & Case partner Juraj Fuska, who led the Firm's deal team. "It also generated the largest demand from the investor community – more than €15 billion – in the history of Slovak sovereign bond issuance."
The notes were offered via a Regulation S offering and are listed on the Bratislava Stock Exchange.
The White & Case team that advised on the transaction was led by partner Juraj Fuska (Bratislava) and included partner Stuart Matty (London) and associates Radoslav Pálka (Bratislava) and James Clarke (London).
