In March, Serbia’s President Aleksandar Vucic said the government plans to provide state aid to power utility EPS, flag carrier Air Serbia and Telekom Srbija through subscription of a capital increase or purchase of corporate bonds.

The company plans to issue 2.35mn five-year corporate bonds with a nominal value of RSD10,000 each without publishing a prospectus.

The bonds will carry an annual coupon not higher than three-month BELIBOR plus 3.25 pp and will be sold to financial institutions in Serbia.

Telekom Srbija's shareholders will vote on the proposal at an extraordinary meeting on September 15.
