Friday's primary highlights / weekly reports

** The European primary market saw a combined EUR1.25bn price on Friday courtesy of Avery Dennison Corp and Swedbank AB which tapped the Mar 2025 and Sep 2022 part of the EUR curve respectively. For details see the IGM DAILY EUR NICs & BOOKS Report

** Swedbank AB refreshed its EUR senior curve with a EUR750m Sep 2022 line which was met with a solid response from investors. Final books of over EUR1.4bn allowed the borrower to print the deal at m/s +18bps from a +25 area IPTs starting point. See IGM's FIG SNAPSHOT

** US issuer Avery Dennison Corp made its debut in the Euro market with a EUR500m no grow 8yr line. Due to the SEC-registered nature of the trade no booksize was revealed but demand was sufficient for the borrower to print the deal 30bps inside IPTs at a m/s +80bps reoffer. For more on this and observations on this week's corporate supply see IGM CORP SNAPSHOT
