Reaffirming its commitment towards development of the Nigerian debt capital market, FSDH Merchant Bank Limited (“FSDH MB”) has successfully raised N14.40 billion from its Series 3 and Series 4 Commercial Paper (“CP”). Collectively, Series 3 and 4 represents FSDH MB’s second Issuance under its N30 Billion CP Programme (“Programme”) established in 2016. Stanbic IBTC Capital Limited acted as Lead Arranger / Dealer while United Capital PLC and FSDH MB acted in the capacity of Co-Arrangers / Dealers, and FSDH MB as Issuing, Calculation and Paying Agent.

The CP offer which closed on 26 May 2017 was open to investors at a discount rate of 18.50% for the Series 3 and 18.80% for the Series 4. The offer was received with considerable investor interest, and a high subscription level despite the persistent lack of liquidity and less than favourable market conditions so far experienced in the first half of 2017. This result is testament to investors’ confidence in FSDH MB as a credible institution with sound management and corporate governance practices, and an enviable track record of successful business operations in the domestic financial market.

The Managing Director, FSDH MB, Mrs. Hamda Ambah emphasised that the success of the bank’s most recent CP Issuance reaffirmed the confidence placed by the market in the bank’s brand and its strategic intent. The CPs were listed on the FMDQ platform on 20 June 2017 and the proceeds of the Issuance will be utilised to support FSDH MB’s short term financing requirements.

Commenting on this development, the Executive Director and Head, Debt Capital Market, Stanbic IBTC Capital Limited, Mr. Kobby Bentsi-Enchill, speaking on behalf of the Arrangers stated, “We are pleased to have supported FSDH MB once again on yet another successful outing in the domestic capital market to meet its funding objectives. Remarkably, Commercial Paper continues to gain momentum as a viable alternative source of funding for blue-chip corporates and high grade issuers, and is also an increasingly competitive investment option for money managers looking for sustainable returns over and above comparable treasury benchmarks”.
