Nigeria Repays $500m Eurobond Debt



Nigeria has redeemed a $500 million Eurobond.

The information is credited to the Debt Management Office (DMO).

According to the DMO, the debt was redeemed on its due date, July 12, 2023.

In a statement on Wednesday, July 12, the DMO said that the debt was part of a dual-tranche US$1 billion Eurobond for a tenor of ten (10) years at a coupon of 6.375% per annum.

Eurobond is a debt instrument that’s denominated in a currency other than the home currency of the country or market in which it is issued.

According to the statement, the DMO said the successful redemption of the Eurobond shows the country’s commitment to meeting its debt service obligations. The debt management office added that the Eurobond was issued in July 2013.

“Nigeria had previously redeemed a USD500 million Eurobond in July 2018, another USD500 million Eurobond in January 2021, and a USD300 million Diaspora Bond in June 2022. These, together with the USD500 million Eurobond redeemed today, bring the total amount of securities redeemed by Nigeria in the International Capital Market (ICM) to USD1.8 billion.

“Nigeria’s successful redemption of its Eurobonds and Diaspora Bond in the ICM over the past six (6) years is a demonstration of its strong debt management operations and planning.” the statement reads in part.
