The Treasury said on Wednesday that it raised EUR 1bn in a EUR-denominated Eurobond issue. The Treasury has mandated Deutsche Bank, ING Bank and J.P. Morgan for the issuance. Market sources told Reuters on Tuesday that Turkey borrowed EUR 1bn.

The bond that matures in April 2023 has a coupon of 4.125% and a yield to investor of 4.20%, the Treasury said in a statement on Wednesday. The bond attracted an orderbook of approximately six times the actual issue size from 34 countries, the Treasury detailed. 41% of the bonds have been sold to investors in Germany, 14% in the UK, 26% in other European countries, 15% in Turkey and 4% in other countries, according to the Treasury.
