Tuesday's primary highlights

** The primary market remained buoyant on Tuesday where another nine transactions printed for a combined EUR16.8bn, spearheaded by Jumbo deals from Spain and KfW (more on those below). Tuesday's bumper total means that we have already seen more supply this week (EUR22.9bn) than in the whole of last week (EUR21.62bn). For information on the nine EUR deals to price Tuesday including pricing steps, see our newly formatted IGM's DAILY EUR NICS & BOOKS report

** The headline issue of the day was Kingdom of Spain's syndicated EUR8bn Oct 2027 deal on the back of blowout demand of over EUR28.9bn. The extremely enthusiastic investor response allowed Spain to print at m/s +70 from a +mid 70s IPTs starting point, which equated to some economic funding for the borrower with the trade appearing to price inside Spain's existing curve

** KfW refreshed its well-stocked global Euro curve with a EUR5bn Oct 2024 line at m/s -28. Books on this one topped EUR7.55bn. For relative value analysis on the KfW & Spain trades, see earlier IGM SSA PREVIEW

** In FIG, the focus was on the higher beta end of the capital structure where HSBC Holdings Plc took advantage of the ongoing search for yield with a EUR1.25bn PNC12 AT1 which was 4X covered. See IGM's FIG SNAPSHOT

** Gecina became the latest IG corp to price a three-part issue comprising a EUR500m 7yr floater and 10/15yr fixed rate issues which were also EUR500m apiece. Demand was strong at over EUR6bn, allowing the spread on each tranche to be tightened 22bps during execution. Elsewhere, Deutsche Bahn returned to the Sterling market after a near 4yr hiatus.

    China Insight: Bond yields see upside risk as deleveraging in play

    By Tim Cheung 14 Sep 2020

    Interbank liquidity tightening during August coincided significantly with the policymakers' introduction of a set of new regulatory measures targeted for property developers. PBOC and the Ministry of Housing and Urban-Rural Development (MOHURD) in mid-Aug had a meeting with major property developers in Beijing on the new rules set to monitor property developers' funding and financing outlook. The new rules include: (1) debt-to-asset ratio must not exceed 70% after contract liabilities; (2) net gearing must not exceed 100%; and (3) Cash-to-short-term debt ratio has to be not less than 1. Developers who fail to meet these requirements are required to submit an action plan by the end of Sep on how to reduce their debt levels within a year and meet all the above three requirements within 3 years. A significant fall in structured deposits and ordinary deposits since the beginning of the year (chart 1) suggests a lot of money has been poured into the real estate market again. That's reflected in the rapid rise in real estate FAI year-to-date (chart 2). Against this backdrop, policymakers have found it necessary to curb the pace of property developers' re-leveraging before it's too late.

    APAC US$ SUPPLY STATS: Issuance declines in August but by less than usual

    10 Sep 2020

    The month of August is a typically subdued affair in the APAC US$ primary bond market, with only the month of December producing less issuance volume in the past couple of years. However, while supply did indeed decline sharply from what was a busy month in July, the US$28.577bn of total issuance (including Japan) that did materialize in August 2020 did at least mark a decent jump from those previous year's volumes. That in a month which continued to offer regional issuers across the rating spectrum attractive funding opportunities, supported by a keenness of yield-hungry investors to add inventory in the low rate environment, consistent with a broader appetite for risk.
