Banks are marketing a 15-year bond of around US$500m in size to finance KKR’s purchase of Pemex assets after failing to attract sufficient interest in a previous loan deal, sources told IFR.
Morgan Stanley is left-lead on the bond, which could price as soon as next week, with Credit Agricole, Mizuho and SMBC also participating as bookrunners, the sources said.
The bond is expected to fill the gap left over from a multi-tranche loan that had been expected to be US$1.35bn in size, but was reduced to US$500m amid push-back over exposure to Pemex and the broader oil and gas sector. (Reporting by Mike Gambale and Paul Kilby; Editing by Marc Carnegie)
