MFB buys back additional bonds of FX series expiring in May
Hungaryʼs state-owned National Development Bank (MFB) has bought back €28.39 million of one of its foreign bond series that expire on May 31, 2016, the bank said on the website of the Budapest Stock Exchange (BSE) yesterday.
The repurchase, which happened at an average net price of 101.97%, will leave €376.721 mln of the bond on the market.
MFB recently repurchased €94.889 mln of the same series at an average net price of 102.12%.
