This Tuesday, BBVA launched an 8-year senior non-preferred debt issue, maturing in January 2031, with a redemption option in the seventh year. The exit rate is MS+190/195bps. This is the Group's first issue in 2023.
The underwriters are BBVA, Barclays, BNP Paribas, Crédit Agricole y J.P. Morgan. The bond will be listed on Euronext Dublin's Regulated Market and has been issued under Spanish law. This issue is aligned with BBVA's funding plan for 2023.
