Union Bank of India on Friday said it will raise Rs 1,320 crore next week by issuing bonds on a private placement basis.
The bank said it has accepted bids of Rs 1,320 crore in an issue of Rs 2,100 crore with a base issue size of Rs 600 crore and a green shoe option to retain oversubscription up to Rs 1,500 crore.
The unsecured, subordinated, taxable, non-convertible, perpetual, fully paid-up Basel III compliant additional tier I bonds in the nature of debentures will carry coupon at 8.69 per cent per annum, the state-owned lender said in a regulatory filing.
The fund raised will be eligible to be included as additional tier-I capital of the bank, it said.
Perpetual bonds carry no maturity date and they are often considered a type of equity, not debt. Even as such bonds are not redeemable, they pay a steady flow of interest forever.
The bank said it will allot bonds to the allottees on July 25, 2022.
Crisil Ratings and India Ratings & Research have rated these bonds as high investment grade AA rating with a stable outlook. PTI KPM KPM BAL BAL
