🔵 Enjoying a peace window, on Monday Ukraine placed 8-year Eurobonds worth $1.25 billion at 6.875% per annum – the lowest yield of the government’s 11 outstanding Eurobonds, reported Bloomberg. The benchmark was 7-7.25%, but demand was almost three times supply, pushing down the final interest rate, reports Interfax.ru.
🔵 ICU wrote yesterday, referring to the government hryvnia bond market: “There has been very important improvement in market sentiment after the risk of escalating hostilities in the east of Ukraine declined, with immediate increase in Eurobonds’ and VRIs’ prices.”

🔵 J.P. Morgan has predicted that Ukraine’s GDP will grow by 5.6% this year, said the bank in its April commentary. This is higher than Ukraine’s Central Bank, which lowered its forecast last week to 3.8%. The Economy Ministry came out last week with a ‘consensus forecast’ of 4.1%. J.P. Morgan bases its optimism on EU and global growth in the second half, and on a rebuilding of inventories and a jump in investment in Ukraine. The bank also has predicted that IMF money will flow again to Ukraine in August-September.
