Opus will use some of the proceeds from the issue to fund its planned acquisition of electricity distributor Titász from the local unit of Germanyʼs E.ON.
The company raised HUF 28.8 bln in a BGS bond issue in October 2019.
The central bank launched the BGS in the summer of 2019 to beef up Hungaryʼs relatively small corporate bond market. The program allocation stands at HUF 750 bln, according to the report.
