This liability management exercise, the commencement and settlement dates of which are September 25 and October 5 respectively, the bank said in a statement by Erhi Obebeduo, its company secretary, allows it “to efficiently manage its liquidity by addressing debt maturing in 2018.
“The extent to which this goal can be achieved through the offer will depend on the number of Notes that will be tendered in the offer, given the voluntary nature of the offer. The Notes purchased by GTBank under the offer will (subsequently) be cancelled,” the statement added.
