KUALA LUMPUR: Danajamin Nasional Bhd and OCBC Bank (Malaysia) Bhd (OCBC) will guarantee BERJAYA LAND BHD’s (BLand) RM650mil 10-year medium term notes (MTN) programme.

Danajamin, which is the country’s financial guarantee insurer, said on Tuesday it guaranteed the RM500mil tranche with a longer tenure of 10 years. 

OCBC Malaysia provided the guarantee for the remaining tranche of RM150mil with a tenure of up to six years.

Both tranches, rated at AAA(fg) and AAA(bg) rating respectively, were issued on Tuesday and were fully subscribed.

Proceeds raised from the bonds issuance will go towards BLand’s investments in its hospitality and integrated development businesses, and also the refinancing of its existing borrowings.
