Hungaryʼs state-owned National Development Bank (MFB) has bought back €94.889 million of one of its foreign bond series that expires on May 31, 2016, the bank said on the website of the Budapest Stock Exchange (BSE) today.
The repurchase will leave €405.111 mln of the bonds, that were issued for a total value of €500 mln, on the market.
