Debt Market Quarterly Update: Q1 2015

Three infrastructure transactions dominated – ConnectEast’s $1,035 million project financing, AMP’s $1,044 million acquisition financing for Royal North Shore Hospital and SDP Finco’s $1,656 million refinancing – and were the only ones above $1 billion.

Key themes

  • Australian debt market issuance hiccups…but corporate issuance abroad increases 
  • The deal of the quarter – APA Group demonstrates successful issuance off-shore with US$3.7 billion 
  • Australians issuing off-shore – lots of success but beware some finding pricing unresponsive 
  • ASIC’s probe into BBSW setting practices coming to a head 
  • Australian interest rates – more downward trending and still significant yield curve inversion 
  • The ECB launches its quantitative easing programme 
  • More clarity in developing retail bond market disclosure obligations – a new potential source of liquidity.
