NEW YORK, Oct 19 (IFR) - The Republic of Suriname narrowed the yield offered on its 10-year international bond on Wednesday to 9.25% area, according to one of the lead managers.
That was tight to initial price thoughts in the 9.5% area. The size of the deal was also upsized by US$50m to US$550m on strong demand, the lead said.
