KARACHI: Trading in the privately placed Rs7 billion bond of Bank AL Habib Ltd will commence on the Pakistan Stock Exchange (PSX) on Wednesday.
Locally known as a term finance certificate (TFC), the debt instrument will contribute towards the bank’s Additional Tier 1 Capital for the capital adequacy ratio (CAR). This category of capital consists of instruments that aren’t equity but can be converted into shares in case a trigger event occurs.
The Rs7bn issue amount is inclusive of a Rs3bn green-shoe option, which allows the underwriter to increase the size of the transaction if the demand is high.
