The auction date for the four offers is January 29, while the settlement date is January 31, according to DMO, which added that the bonds were being offered at N1,000 per unit subject to a minimum subscription of N50 million and in multiples of N1,000 thereafter.
“For re-openings of previously issued bonds, successful bidders will pay a price corresponding to the yield-to-maturity bid that clears the volume being auctioned plus any accrued interest on the instrument.
“Interest is payable semi-annually, while bullet repayment is on the maturity date,’’ it noted.
It said that FGN Bonds were backed by the full faith and credit of the Federal Government of Nigeria.
“They qualify as securities in which trustees can invest under the Trustee Investment Act,” it added.
DMO added that the bonds were listed on the Nigerian Exchange Ltd. & FMDQ OTC Securities Exchange and qualified as liquid assets for liquidity ratio calculation for banks.
