Kingdom of Sweden issues SEK 4,335 million in new 17-year inflation-linked bond

23 April 2015 - Press release

The Swedish National Debt Office issued a 17-year inflation-linked bond in exchange for a short-dated inflation-linked bond. The issue volume was SEK 4,335 million. The switch was made 22 basis points above the 14-year inflation-linked bond.

The Debt Office’s objective is to increase the number of outstanding maturities and avoid excessive volume concentrations. Following a dialogue with primary dealers and investors, the Debt Office made the assessment that there was an interest in a new long inflation-linked bond with a 17-year maturity.

The new bond, SGB IL 3111 0.125% 1 Jun 32, was sold at a yield of –0.840 per cent. At the same time, SEK 3,159 million SGB IL 3104 3.5% 1 Dec 28 was bought at a yield of –1.060 per cent.

The new bond was sold through syndication where the lead managers jointly sold the bond on behalf of the Debt Office at conditions approved by the Debt Office. In connection with the syndication the terms of the switch were set to 22 basis points (0.22 per cent).

The Debt Office may offer the new inflation-linked bond at regular auctions when there is clear demand.
