April 29 (SeeNews) - The European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) said on Friday it has invested 27.33 million lei (5.5 million euro) in a 555 million lei municipal bond issuance by the Bucharest city government.
As part of its decision to invest, the bank will mobilise technical assistance to support Bucharest in developing a Green City Action Plan, the EBRD said in a document posted on its website.
The plan will articulate the city's vision, strategic objectives and priority actions and investments to address its priority environmental challenges.
The bond issue has a 10-year maturity and was launched to refinance the City's 7-year bond tranche, maturing on May 4 2022.
The bond started trading on the Bucharest Stock Exchange on Friday. In the private placement, the municipality issued 55,500 registered, non-convertible, unsecured bonds denominated in lei with a nominal unit value of 10,000 lei and a fixed annual interest rate of 7.33% per year. The bonds will mature on April 19, 2032, the bourse said in a press release on Friday.
Bucharest the largest city of Romania with around 1.8 million inhabitants, generates over 20% of the country's GDP, with local GDP more than three times that of the national average.
In November 2021, Fitch reaffirmed ratings for Bucharest at "BBB-", with negative outlook. Fitch said that the affirmation reflects Bucharest's continuing sound operating performance, moderate debt levels relative to the city's operating balance and current revenue, and sound debt ratios.
