FINEWS LATAM-Brazil's OSX may pay 11 pct yield to sell $265 mln in bonds-source

Fri Mar 15, 2013 8:08am EDT

OSX Brasil SA, the shipbuilding company controlled by Brazilian billionaire Eike Batista, could pay yields between 10 percent and 11 percent to sell $265 million of secured bonds, a source with direct knowledge of the deal told Reuters. The bond will mature in June next year, and proceeds from its sale could be used to fully fund the remaining capital requirements of the construction of the FPSO OSX-3 and cover debt-servicing costs.

Under terms of the bond, OSX agreed to maintain an equity ratio of at least 20 percent or else be subject to an early repayment of the bond, said the source, who refused to speak on the record because terms of the transaction are not public. Pareto Securities is handling the transaction for the Brazilian company.

Calpers, the largest U.S. public pension fund, manages retirement benefits for more than 1.6 million people, with assets comparable in value to the entire GDP of Israel. The Calpers investment portfolio had a historic drop in value, going from a peak of $250 billion in the fall of 2007 to $167 billion in March 2009, a loss of about a third during that period. It is now around $200 billion. REUTERS/Max Whittaker   (UNITED STATES) - RTXPWOZ
