Notes to Editors:

On 8 February 2013 the NTMA issued €25.034 billion nominal of Floating Rate Bonds, with original maturities ranging from 25 to 40 years, which were exchanged for the Promissory Notes held by the Central Bank of Ireland (CBI), on foot of the Irish Bank Resolution Corporation Liquidation.
