MUMBAI Aug 8 India's IDBI Bank has picked three banks for a potential offshore bond issue, three sources with direct knowledge of the matter said on Wednesday, with one saying the bank is eyeing a Singapore dollar offering.
IDBI has chosen DBS, HSBC and Standard Chartered for a non-deal roadshow scheduled for August 14-15, the sources said. A deal could follow subject to market conditions, they added.
A benchmark Singapore dollar deal is typically in the range of S$150 million-S$200 million ($120.6 million-$160.8 million).
In March, IDBI priced a three and half year Swiss franc bond issue at mid-swaps plus 274 basis points, and raised 110 million Swiss francs ($113.71 million).
