By bne IntelliNews November 5, 2012
Hungarys state debt manger AKK sold HUF 37.5bn (EUR 132.2mn) in three, five and ten-year bonds, as it cut the offer of five and ten-year bonds due to weak demand, the agency said on its website. It sold the initially planned amount of HUF 20bn in three-year bonds as primary dealers offered HUF 37.9bn worth of bids. The average yield rose by 25bps from the previous auction to 6.15%, but it was still 7bps over the secondary market benchmark. AKK cut the float of five-year bonds by HUF 5bn to HUF 10bn as investors bid only HUF 17.6bn. The average yield stood at 6.35%, or 32bps over the level from the previous auction held on October 18 but 6bps below the secondary market benchmark. The offer on ten-year bonds was lowered by HUF 2.5bn to HUF 7.5bn on bids of HUF 11.3bn. The issue produced an average yield of 6.81%, or 7bp under the secondary market benchmark but 52bps higher than the yield at the previous auction.
