Sberbank and Sberbank CIB take top positions in Euroweeks Emerging Market Bond Awards 2012


Sberbank and Sberbank CIB have been recognised for their role in several best deals of 2012 in Euroweek’s Emerging Market Bond Awards 2012.

Euroweek surveyed a number of emerging market teams at the leading investment banks across the international bond markets to draw up a list of top deals of 2012.

A series of bonds issued by the Russian Federation was awarded Overall Emerging Market Deal of the Year, Emerging Market Sovereign Deal of the Year and Eastern European Deal of the Year. The bonds, totalling $7bn, fall due in 2017, 2022, and 2042 and were underwritten by Sberbank CIB, BNP Paribas, Citi, Deutsche Bank and VTB Capital.

Sberbank and Sberbank CIB were awarded the Emerging Market Financial Institution Deal of the Year for their joint work on Sberbank’s $2bn 10-year bond issuance at a coupon of 5.125%.

Pavel Sokolov, Co-Head of Corporate Finance, Managing Director at Sberbank CIB, commented: “I am pleased that these rankings reflect our teams’ hard work and effort across 2012. Sberbank CIB not only captured some of the year’s most important fixed income market deals, but also put in an impressive all-round performance. The bank has leading positions on the local ruble bond market, in both corporate and municipal/sub-federal segments2, placing 77 RUB bond issues, and moved from sixteenth to fourth place in the rating of lead-bookrunners of Eurobonds in the CIS3, making 21 issues in 2012. I look forward to our many achievements in the coming months.”
