The Hungarian state debt manger AKK sold a combined HUF 35bn (EUR 117mn) in three-, five- and 10-year fixed-rate bonds at an auction on August 8, cutting the initial offer by HUF 5bn on weak demand, the agency informed.

AKK sold HUF 13bn worth of three-year bonds on August 8, down from HUF 18bn initially planned. The issue lured bids of HUF 17.5bn, providing a relatively weak coverage over the supply. Demand eased from HUF 24bn at the previous auction. The average yield at the latest auction reached 4.74%, up by 20bps from the previous tender and 3bpt over the benchmark fixing.

AKK sold the announced volume of HUF 13bn of five-year bonds. Demand dropped further to HUF 17.3bn from HUF 18.6bn at the previous auction. The yield averaged 5.21%, up by 24bps from the previous auction and 3bps over the secondary market benchmark.

The state debt authority placed the announced volume of HUF 9bn in 10-year bonds. Demand rose to HUF 20.2bn from HUF 9.8bn at the previous undersubscribed auction. The average yield stood at 6.16%, up by 26bps from the previous auction and 2bps above the secondary benchmark fixing.
