Ouganda – Deuxième émission obligataire de la BAD

TUNIS, Tunisie, 24 mai 2013/African Press Organization (APO)/ La Banque africaine de développement (BAD) (http://www.afdb.org) a lancé sa deuxième émission obligataire, libellée en shilling ougandais (USh), sur le marché domestique des capitaux. D’un montant de 12,5 milliards d’USh, l’obligation est ouverte à la souscription jusqu’au 27 mai 2013. Il s’agit de la plus récente émission opérée dans le cadre du Programme d’émission obligataire à moyen terme (PEMT) de 125 milliards d’USh, lancé initialement à la mi-2012. L’approche PEMT a été adoptée pour permettre à la Banque de se financer régulièrement sur le marché des capitaux ougandais, par le biais d’émission de différentes tranches, plutôt que d’accéder au marché par des opérations autonomes. Une telle démarche minimise ainsi les coûts pour les clients, tout en réduisant le délai nécessaire pour émettre sur le marché financier.
