By Davide Scigliuzzo
NEW YORK, Aug 8 (IFR) - Mexico tightened pricing on a two-part US dollar bond on Monday, as demand for the deal swelled close to US$9bn, according to one of the lead managers.
The sovereign set guidance of Treasuries plus 150bp area on a tap of its 4.125% January 2026s and 210bp area on a new long 30-year maturing in January 2047, with area at plus or minus 5bp.
That was tight to initial price thoughts of T+165bp area and T+225bp area respectively.
Proceeds are going to buy back up to all of Mexico's roughly US$2.67bn of outstanding 5.625% 2017s.
Joint bookrunners BBVA, Bank of America Merrill Lynch and Credit Suisse are expected to price the bonds later on Monday. (Reporting by Davide Scigliuzzo; Editing by Marc Carnegie)
