Bangkok--20 Feb--HSBC Thailand

Corporates are looking for more innovative ways to finance for business growth, in light of a more challenging market environment. Minor International's USD300 million guaranteed senior perpetual capital securities was a remarkable showcase of innovative financing solution, for which HSBC acted as joint global coordinator, joint bookrunner and joint lead manager, providing strong support and tailored service to meet the needs of the client.

Minor International (MINT), one of the largest hospitality and leisure companies in Asia-Pacific, has successfully issued perpetual securities with a guarantee from Bangkok Bank aiming to refinance its acquisition of a bigger stake in Spain's NH Hotel Group. The bond issuance was a rare offshore financing from non-state owned Thai enterprise and was guaranteed by a Thai commercial bank -- the first such transaction to be executed in Thailand.
