Access Bank Plc (the Bank) (rated 'B' stable outlook by Fitch and 'B2' negative outlook by Moody's)  a leading full service Nigerian commercial bank with presence in 11 African countries, is pleased to announce the successful pricing of a US$500 million 144A/ Reg S Senior Unsecured Eurobond. The offering achieved the lowest (outstanding) Nigerian bank Eurobond coupon, supported by an over 3x oversubscribed orderbook of over US$1.6 billion, which represents the largest orderbook ever for a Nigerian bank Eurobond transaction.

The Senior Eurobond is a 5-year unsecured note (144A/RegS) under the Bank's US$1.5 billion Global Medium-Term Note Programme and is listed on the main market of the London Stock Exchange. The bond matures in September 2026 and was issued with a yield and coupon of 6.125% with interest payable semi-annually in arrears.

The net proceeds of the Eurobond will provide medium term funding and help to enhance the capacity of the Bank to support its general banking purposes.
