    This is the "lowest coupon ever achieved by an Asia ex Japan corporate issuer in the BBB category for a 10 year issuance with a size of USD 1 billion or more" the company said in a statement.

    This is being seen as an achievement, considering that global issuers have been paying up to price their offerings in volatile markets and amid the immense volatility in oil prices.

    RIL said it has priced its 144A/Reg S bonds to yield 240 basis points over US Treasuries Note at a 4.125 per cent coupon.

    Most of Asia ex-Japan's US dollar deals have come with new-issue concessions of at least 7 basis point from the likes of Export-Import Bank of Korea, to as much as around 40-50 basis points from China Huarong Asset Management.

    RIL said it received orders of over USD 4.5 billion from 272 accounts. Fund managers accounted for 62 per cent of the orders, insurers and pension funds made up for 18 per cent, banks for 10 per cent, central banks, supranationals and agencies for 7 per cent, and private banks for 3 per cent.

    US investors received the majority of the notes at 44 per cent, while Asia took 31 per cent while the remainder went to European buyers. Bank of America Merrill Lynch, Citigroup, HSBC and Stadard Chartered were the joint global co-ordinators.

    Barclays, Deutsche Bank, JP Morgan and Morgan Stanley were active bookrunners, and ANZ, BNP Paribas, Credit Agricole CIB and RBS were passive bookrunners.


    V Srikanth, Joint Chief Financial Officer of RIL, said, "This transaction opened up the market for private sector corporate issuances out of Asia, against the backdrop of challenging market conditions.

    We successfully concluded a swift intra-day execution to capitalise on the market window and lock in long term funding at an attractive cost."
