Spain to raise funds from 15-year bond issue - lead manager

The bond will price at 15 basis points over Spain's existing July 2035 notes

  

LONDON- Spain is set to raise 6 billion euros from a new 15-year bond issue on Tuesday, generating final demand of over 42 billion euros, according to a lead manager.

The bond will price at 15 basis points over Spain's existing July 2035 notes, the lead manager added in a message to investors seen by Reuters, down from around 18 basis points when the sale started earlier in the day. 

Demand fell from a peak of 62 billion euros before pricing was set.

Spain hired Barclays, BNP Paribas, Morgan Stanley, Nomura, Santander and Societe Generale for the sale on Monday.
