· The new issuance of the 5-year MGII maturing 14 April 2022 with a size of RM4.0bil


Dear Readers,

Highlights of the report as follow:-

·        The new issuance of the 5-year MGII maturing 14 April 2022 with a size of RM4.0bil recorded a relatively strong book-to-cover (BTC) ratio of 2.773 times (Table 1). This was the highest BTC ratio since the last new issuance in February 2016 of 2.846%. We find the spread of the 5-year MGII/MGS of 15.3 basis points to be higher compared to the average 5-year MGII/MGS spread of 14.6 basis from 2010 to 2017 (Chart 1). We notice the strong demand came from both local and foreign buying.
·        The next tender to watch is the re-opening of the 15-year MGS in April (Table 2). It will be the second 15-year MGS re-opening for 2017 where the last was the 15-year MGS ‘06/31 in January 2017 which reported a 2.503 times BTC ratio.
