HCMC – Nam Long Investment Corporation (NLG) has issued VND500 billion worth of bonds with a term of seven years and an annual coupon of 9.35%.
On June 14, the firm issued the inconvertible secured bonds without warrants, the local media reported.
The shares of Nam Long VCD, NLG’s subsidiary, and of its joint venture, NNH Mizuki JSC, were used as collateral.
International Finance Corporation, a private-sector arm of the World Bank, had earlier registered to buy NLG’s bonds worth VND1 trillion, or some US$44 million.
This year, the firm expects to obtain VND7.15 trillion in net revenue and VND1.5 trillion in after-tax profit.
In the first quarter of 2022, NLG posted VND587.4 billion in revenue, surging by 149% year-on-year but reaching only 2.1% of its full-year revenue target, while its after-tax profit amounted to VND32.7 billion in the first three months of 2022, down 91% against the same period last year.
