National Bank of Greece plans bond launch

By Kerin Hope

Greece’s second-largest bank plans to return to capital markets next week in the wake of a successful bond issue and two capital-raisings by rival Athens lenders.

National Bank of Greece is preparing to launch a €750m senior unsecured bond, its first such issue in almost five years, and a separate €2.5bn share offering aimed at investors betting that Greece will stage a dramatic economic rebound.

“There is vivid interest already both from hedge funds and institutional investors,” said Petros Christodoulou, NBG’s deputy chief executive.

The bond is expected to have a five-year maturity with a yield of about 4.5 per cent, compared to 4.95 per cent on the country’s heavily subscribed five-year sovereign issue last week.

National has named Morgan Stanley, Goldman Sachs, HSBC, Bank of America Merrill Lynch, and Citigroup to arrange investor calls and set up presentations in London next week. The issue could be completed as early as next Wednesday, according to people involved in the marketing effort.

Piraeus Bank, the largest Greek lender, led the return to bond markets last month with a €500m, three-year issue, which was followed by a €1.75bn equity offering. Both were snapped up by investors eager for higher yields available from financial institutions in Europe’s peripheral markets.

Like Piraeus, National is rated Caa1 by Moody’s and CCC by Standard & Poor’s – deep in junk territory.

Alpha Bank, which is ranked Greece’s third-largest by assets, also raised €1.2bn of fresh capital. Eurobank, the fourth-largest, has signed up an investor group led by Fairfax to anchor a €2.9bn share offering later this month.

Greece’s four systemic banks were told by the central bank to raise a total of €6.4bn in fresh capital to achieve a core tier one ratio of 8 following stress tests last year by the consultancy BlackRock required under the terms of the country’s €170bn second international bailout.

National initially planned to shun a capital-raising and focus on further cost-cutting and sales of non-core assets, including a stake in its Turkish subsidiary Finansbank, in order to cover its capital requirement of €2.2bn but changed course following pressure from the Bank of Greece, the central bank.

In its latest annual results National reported a net profit of €809m in 2013 compared with a loss of €2.1bn in 2012.
