Nigeria to hold investor call on Friday ahead of eurobond issue

LAGOS- Nigeria has asked its eurobond managers to arrange a call with global investors on Friday ahead of a planned issuance, according to a notice seen by Reuters on Thursday. The West African country picked JPMorgan, Citigroup, and Goldman Sachs as international bookrunners and local firm Chapel Hill Denham on the forthcoming eurobond issue. The global investor call was due to take place on Friday at 1245 GMT, the first of a series of other calls. Nigerian finance minister said last month that the country would launch its planned eurobond issue on Oct. 11, with the aim of raising $3 billion and would hold roadshows in Lagos and New York. The eurobonds are aimed at raising funds for external borrowing of 2.343 trillion naira earmarked in the 2021 spending plan to partly finance the government's deficit of 5.6 trillion naira via a mix of foreign and local debt. It had planned a eurobond issue early last year after its sixth sale in 2018, where it raised $2.86 billion. But it decided to defer the 2020 sale due to COVID-19 disruptions. On Wednesday, top tier Nigerian lender Access Bank priced a $500 million eurobond after a series of investor meetings. Africa's
