Amcorp completes EB

Malaysian investment holding company raises funds to subscribe to a restricted securities offering by its investment banking arm.

Amcorp Berhad, the ultimate parent of the entire Arab Malaysian group, raised $100 million yesterday February 3 from an exchangeable into AMMB, the financial services holding company that owns a bank, insurance arm and investment bank. The Merrill Lynch led deal holds the distinction of being the longest-dated outstanding equity-linked deal from Malaysia and the one with the highest exchange premium. Both feats were achieved because the group was prepared to offer a fairly chunky yield.

Terms comprise an issue price of par, 1% coupon, four-year put price of 118.65% and five-year redemption price of 123.94% to yield 5.25%. This was the mid-point of a 4.9% to 5.6% range.
