The proposed issuance has a tenor of one-and-a-half (1.5) years and bears a coupon rate of 6.025 percent per annum. The minimum investment amount is P500,000, with additional increments of P100,000 thereafter.

The offer period will run from Jan. 9 to 22, 2024, while the issue, settlement, and listing date will be on Jan. 29, 2024.

Standard Chartered Bank is the sole arranger of the proposed issuance, with BDO Unibank Inc. and Standard Chartered Bank as the selling agents, and BDO Capital and Investment Corp. as the financial advisor.
