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.
The bonds pay interest every six months (June and December) based on the 6-month Euribor interest rate plus a fixed margin which averages 2.65% across the bonds currently outstanding.
Following today’s transaction, €7 billion nominal of the Floating Rate Bonds have been bought from the CBI by the NTMA and subsequently cancelled.
