Description
Global Markets and Macroeconomic News ·         The visit of Russian President Vladimir Putin has become the most important event in the economic life of Russia and China.   Debt Market ·         Russian Eurobonds showed on Tuesday lateral movement in the absence of news on gas supplies to China. ·         A number of smaller contracts between Russian and Asian companies were yesterday a supporting factor. ·         The yield of issue RUSSIA-23 decreased on Tuesday by 3 b. p. to 4.68% per annum, and the yield of long Eurobond RUSSIA-43 grew 3 b. p. to 5.67% per annum. ·         On Wednesday we expect the lateral direction in the market. ·         The leading indices of the ruble bond market closed on Tuesday without single dynamics. ·         Issuers are trying to take advantage of the geopolitical calm and actively entering the primary market.   Comments ·         According to media reports, the owner of Gunvor is negotiating the sale of the company with several candidates, including Rosneft. If Gunvor is acquired by Rosneft or a company with a rating not lower than of Rosneft, the potential for the yield reduction of Eurobond GUNVOR-18 (YTM – 6.66%, Z-spread – 542 b. p.) may be around 180-200 b. p., which will lead to the increase of prices of Eurobonds to the level 103.6-104.3% of the nominal from the current level of 97.3% of the nominal. ·         NLMK published yesterday the statements under IFRS for the first quarter of 2014, which indicated the improvement of the efficiency of the Group's activities and reduction of the debt load.

Currently, ruble bonds of NLMK are priced fairly, and the potential of the accelerated yield reduction of Eurobonds NLMKRU-18 (YTM – 4.92%, Z-spread – 377 b. p.) and NLMKRU-19 (YTM – 5.44%, Z-spread – 379 b. p.) is 15-20 b. p. in the medium term.

Gazprom Neft, UniCredit Bank. The debt market will start the week with neutral dynamics

 

Description
Global Markets and Macroeconomic News ·         Construction of new homes in the USA for April rose by 13.2% to 1072 thousand. ·         Industrial production in Japan, according to the final evaluation, rose in the first month of the spring by 0.7%. ·         Foreign direct investment in the Chinese economy grew by results of April by 3.4%, at the expectations of an increase by 1.0%. ·         On May 20-21, there will take place the official visit of Russian President Vladimir Putin to China.     Debt Market ·         Russian Eurobonds will start the week with neutral dynamics in expectation of the outcome of the visit of the President of Russia in China, as well as against the growth prospects of the risks before the elections in Ukraine on May 25. ·         On Friday sovereign Eurobonds decreased amid the tendency towards profit fixing after rising in the previous two weeks. The yield of issue RUSSIA-23 grew by 6 b. p. to 4.91% per annum. ·         In case of signing a long-term gas contract between Russia and China on Tuesday-Wednesday, it could have a material support to all Russian assets, including the Eurobond market. ·         Ruble bonds finished the day near the levels of Thursday. ·         UniCredit Bank starts the premarketing of bonds series BO-21.   Comments ·         Gazprom Neft submitted on Friday a report under IFRS for 1Q14. The net debt of the issuer decreased by 2.6 times to 86.4 billion rubles, while the ratio of Net debt/12M EBITDA as on March 31 amounted to 0.27x against 0.74x at the end of last year. The reduction of the debt load was determined by the increased volume of cash and cash equivalents, which may be a temporary phenomenon. However, the growth of revenue and EBITDA of the company allows speaking about the improving credit profile of the issuer. We expect a moderately positive reaction in the Eurobonds of Gazprom Neft. The potential of the accelerated reduction of the yield of issue SIBNEF-23 (YTM – 6.31%, Z-spread – 388 b. p.) is 20-25 b. p. ·         UniCredit Bank opens today the book of applications for the purchase of bonds series BO-21 in the amount of 10 billion rubles.

The debt market will take a break on Friday after the growth of two weeks. Comments: Nordgold, Center-Invest Bank, Gazprombank

Description
Global Markets and Macroeconomic News ·         World markets will remain in doubt about the adequacy of forecasts of the strengthening of the world economy and the timing of the policy changes by the Fed. ·         USA: the increase of consumer prices in April accelerated from 1.5% yoy to 2.0% yoy (excluding food and energy – from 1.7% yoy to 1.8% yoy). ·         USA: the volume of industrial production in April fell by 0.6%, the forecast implied no changes (the figure for March was improved by 0.2%). ·         Eurozone: GDP for the first quarter +0.9% yoy, forecast: +1.1% yoy.   Debt Market ·         Russian Eurobonds will show on Friday neutral dynamics in connection with the tendency to profit taking after the strong growth before the weekend. ·         The yield of 10-year issue RUSSIA-23 showed on Thursday a modest growth, having increased by 1 b. p. to 4.85% per annum, and the yield of issue RUSSIA-43 decreased by 1 b. p. to 5.79% per annum. ·         In general, Russian Eurobonds demonstrated a substantial strengthening of quotations from the beginning of the past week, the price of issue RUSSIA-42 grew from the beginning of May by 9%, rising in the course of trading of Thursday to the peak from January 24 this year. ·         At the beginning of the next week, the Russian Eurobond market will probably also demonstrate neutral dynamics due to the uncertainty regarding the elections in Ukraine. ·         Ruble bonds ended the trading day with a moderate growth of indexes. ·         The issuers, which intend to carry out primary placement, start premarketing. ·         Today we expect local market to demonstrate moderately positive dynamics.     Comments ·         On Thursday, Nordgold presented results for 1Q14 under IFRS. We evaluate the statements as moderately positive, despite the increase of the net debt in connection with the company's progress in reduction of the production cost, which helped to significantly increase the EBITDA margin, and generate the positive free cash flow. However, due to the dependence of prices for gold from the events in Ukraine in recent months, the report is unlikely to become a significant driver for the Eurobond of the company NORDLI-18 (YTM – 7.74%, Z-spread – 652 b. p.). The potential for the yield reduction, therefore, is 10-15 b. p. in the medium term in the absence of a downward movement in the prices for gold. ·         Yesterday CB Center-Invest announced plans to open from May 21 to 22 the book of applications for the purchase of bonds in the amount of 2 billion rubles, which will be placed on May 26, 2014. The coupon guidance of a 5-year bonds series BO-08 is 11.75-12.00%, which corresponds to the yield of 12.10-12.36%. We consider the placement of the bonds interesting, as Center-Invest offers the premium of 180-186 b. p. to the fair level of the yield of 10.3%-10.5%, and recommend investors to take part in the placement. ·         Gazprombank today holds the canvass for the purchase of 3-year bonds series BO-08 in the amount of 10 billion rubles. According to our estimates, the premium makes up 40-50 b. p.

The Agency expects the positive free cash flow of the company in the medium term, and reduction of the leverage to the acceptable level of 2.1x. We do not see any interesting ideas in ruble bonds of the company and offer investors to pay attention to paper MMC Norilsk Nickel series B-1, which are traded with unreasonably high premium to MMK, 18 and MMK, 19 in the amount of 50-70 b. p.

On Monday the Debt market will evaluate the consequences of the referendum in the East of Ukraine. Comments: Severstal, Magnit

CBONDS EM MONTHLY NEWSLETTER: ISSUES STATISTICS AND LEAGUE TABLES (APR 2014)

Description
Cbonds starts publishing new monthly report: CBONDS EM MONTHLY NEWSLETTER: ISSUES STATISTICS AND LEAGUE TABLES. This report gives a comprehensive view of issuance activity in Emerging Market Eurobonds as well as league tables for investment banks. The report gives data on global EM and selected regions: Asia, LatAM, CEE, CIS, Middle East and Africa.   League tables are built using League table builder at Cbonds (http://em.cbonds.com/rankings/generator/, free access, registration required). EM monthly issuance statistics is available at http://em.cbonds.com/indexes/ (free access).   This issue (Apr 2014) highlights:   * Historical highest volume of new EM Eurobonds in Apr 2014 - 116 issues with the volume USD 70.63 bn. This is the highest monthly volume since Cbonds started to follow this statistics in Jan 2010. Previous high was in Jan 2014 (USD 67.13 bln, 106 issues). The number of new issues is also at historically highest level (116 issues, the same as in Jan and Apr 2013). However due to relatively quiet 1Q 2014, the overall issuance in Jan-Apr is just 3.2% higher than in Jan-Apr 2013 (USD 197 bln VS USD 190.9 bln). * Asia is remaining the main driver for unprecedented EM activity. The volume of new bonds from Asia in April amounted to USD 38.3 bln (71 issues). For Jan-Apr 2014 Asian borrowers printed bonds for USD 87 bln., app. 33% increase from 2013. * LatAM borrowers issued 24 bonds in Apr with total volume USD 15.85 bln. Overall issuance in this region in Jan-Apr reached USD 55.9 bln, a 30% increase from 2013. * Activity in CEE remains relatively high. CEE issuers in April printed 7 bonds worth USD 6.373 bln, more or less in line with activity in recent months. However, due to very high activity in Jan 2014, overall issuance from CEE in Jan-Apr amounted to USD 30 bln, 33% increase to Jan-Apr 2013. * Growing activity in Middle East (8 issues in April worth USD 6.55 bln) and Africa (4 issues worth 3.35 bln). * Very low activity from Russia & CIS (just 2 issues worth USD 170 mln) due to geopolitical crisis in Ukraine. Unfortunately there is no reasons to expect it will be over soon. * Citi and HSBC tops the league table for global EM in Jan-Apr with very similar volumes (USD 20.27 bln and USD 20.12 bln respectively). They are followed by JP Morgan (17.1 bln), Deutsche Bank (14.85 bln) and BofA Merrill Lynch (11 bln). Goldman Sachs, Barclays, BNP Paribas, UBS and Credit Suisse are also in Top-10. * HSBC is leader in Asia with Citi ranked 2nd and Deutsche 3rd. Also in Top-10 are BofA ML, Standard, UBS, JP Morgan, Goldman, Bank of China and Morgan Stanley. Bank of China regained its place in Top-10 after being 11th in 1Q 2013. * HSBC is also leader in LatAM (6.17 bn) followed by JP Morgan and Credit Suisse. Deutsche, BofA ML, Citigroup, Banco do Brasil, Goldman, Banco Bradesco and BNP Paribas are also in Top-10. * CEE remains a stronghold of Citi where it enjoys comfortably edge over JP Morgan (USD 5.2 over USD 3.8 bn).

The debt market will show neutral dynamics on Tuesday. Comments: Aeroflot, Norilsk Nickel.

Description
Global Markets and Macroeconomic News ·         World markets will continue to move at a small pace without demonstrating single dynamics against the persistence of tension in Ukraine. ·         USA: the index of business activity in the services sector in April 55.2 p.; prev. 53.1 p. ·         The CBR reported an increase by 5 kopecks of the corridor of the bi-currency basket to 36.4-43.4 rubles.   Debt Market ·         On Tuesday Russian Eurobonds will show neutral dynamics in case of the absence of a sudden resumption of hostilities in Ukraine. ·         On Monday the activity of the Eurobond market was below average due to a national holiday in the UK, and the yield of issues RUSSIA-23 and RUSSIA-43, according to the trading results, has shown a symbolic increase by 1 b. p. ·         Among interesting events we note the intention of Russian Agricultural Bank to hold by the example of Gazprom a non-deal roadshow in Asia without the indication of concrete terms of meetings with investors. ·         The aggravation of the Russian-Ukrainian conflict was reflected by the ruble bond market with a weak decrease of leading indexes. ·         Today, in case of the neutral news background, the market of ruble-denominated debt may demonstrate a weak rebound.   Comments ·         Aeroflot has published operational results for the first quarter of 2014 and demonstrated high growth rates of the main indices. The passenger traffic of the company grew by 15.2% against the average growth rate of 10.3%. We consider undervalued the bonds Aeroflot, BO-03 and expect the return of the yields in the range of 7.8 to 8.0%. ·         The Board of Directors of Norilsk Nickel approved on Monday the attraction of $200 million for the period of 5 years within the loan of the Russian subsidiary of ING financial group. Previously, in early April, Norilsk Nickel announced the signing of two urgent unsecured loans from UniCredit Bank of $400 million and from Raiffeisenbank in the amount of $350 million, which given the volume of cash and equivalents of $1.6 billion, excludes the short-term liquidity risks of the issuer. In this regard, the news on attraction of $200 million from ING can be considered as a positive for the credit profile of the issuer, but the substantial growth of the traded Eurobonds is not expected.

The debt market will start the week with lateral dynamics. Comments: ALROSA, Russian Railways.

Description
Global Markets and Macroeconomic News ·         The dynamics of the global markets will develop with an eye on the situation in Ukraine. ·         The Federal Open Market Committee, as expected, has reduced the volume of the QE3 program by $10 billion to $45 billion. ·         USA: In April the unemployment rate fell from 6.7% to 6.3%; it was created 288 thousand new jobs; forecast: 6.6% and 218 thousand, respectively. ·         Russia: the index of business activity in the services sector in Russia from HSBC in April rose from 48.3 to 48.5 p. p. (the forecast was 48.0 p.).   Debt Market ·         Russian Eurobonds will show on Monday lateral dynamics due to the position of "non-interference" of the Russian authorities in the conflict in the East of Ukraine. ·         On Thursday-Friday of the past week the Eurobond market showed a moderate decrease, reflecting the news on the beginning of military operation in the Donetsk region. ·         Friday's data on unemployment in the USA have led to the decrease of the yield of UST-10 to the minimum of six months. ·         The Russian debt market demonstrated on Friday weakly positive dynamics. ·         Trading was held with a low trading activity. ·         The market of government and corporate debts didn’t indicate significant changes.   Comments ·         ALROSA managed to refinance the short-term debt. The risks of a downgrade have decreased. As a protective instrument we recommend to consider the most liquid issue ALROSA, 23 (YTM – 9.25%) maturing in June 2015, which is currently traded with a spread to the securities of Norilsk Nickel and Metalloinvest. We estimate the fair yield at 8.8-9.0%, which implies the yield reduction by 25-45 b. p. ·         JSC Russian Railways submitted on April 30 the statements for 2013 under IFRS. The statements of state-owned company look moderately negative against the growth of the ratio Net debt/EBITDA by almost 2 times to 1.74x against 0.93x at the end of 2012 and a decrease of EBITDA margin. Among Eurobonds of Russian Railways we note issue RURAIL-31 (YTM - 7,14%, Z-spread – 420 b. p.).

The Group's management explains the net loss by the write-off revaluation of loans and tax deductions connected with the payment of dividends in February 2014. We see an interesting idea in the ruble-denominated issue O’KEY, 02 with the put option in December 2015, which is traded with unreasonably large spread to securities of Magnit and X5. The potential yield decline is 65-75 b. p.

Description
Global Markets and Macroeconomic News ·    World markets will sigh with relief thanks to the mild nature of imposed sanctions against Russia and the end of military exercise of the armed forces of the Russian Federation near the borders of Ukraine. ·    USA: the index of signed contracts for home sales in March increased by 3.4%; forecast: +1.0% ·    Money market rates moved to new highs, reacting to the tightening of the monetary policy by the Bank of Russia.   Debt Market ·    Russian Eurobonds on Tuesday will continue the strengthening, which began on Monday evening. ·    Unexpectedly mild sanctions against Russia and messages on the return of Russian armed forces to the places of the permanent deployment speak in favor of the market growth. ·    Among important market events we also stress the beginning of a two-day meeting of the Fed, at which there is expected the reduction of QE3 program by another $10 billion.   Comments ·    Banglalink Digital Communications, a subsidiary of VimpelCom in Bangladesh, placed yesterday the country's first 5-year issue of Eurobonds in the amount of $300 million with a coupon of 8.625% per annum. Issue BBLINK-19 attracted quite a high interest of investors in Asia and Europe, and by the morning of Tuesday, the yield of the Eurobond amounted to 8.55% per annum, the price – 100.29% of the nominal. Given the fact that the issue of VimpelCom VIP-19 is traded at the yield of about 6.8% per annum, the yield of Eurobond BBLINK-19 looks pretty interesting at above 8.5%. We expect further upward dynamics of issue BBLINK-19.

Description
Global Markets and Macroeconomic News ·    World markets will be waiting for the return of investors after the Easter weekend. ·    Japan: the trade deficit in March: 1.4 trillion yen; forecast: 1.08 trillion yen.   Debt Market ·    Trading activity of Russian Eurobonds will again be low on Monday due to the ongoing celebration of Easter in Europe. ·    On Friday the market experienced a slight rise of quotes.

The total income of the operator may make up around $4 billion. Due to the deal VimpelCom will get an opportunity to pay off short-term financial obligations and to increase the stock of money, which we view as a positive event. In this regard, we see the potential growth of the value of traded VIP-21 (YTM – 7.50%, Z-spread 534 b. p.) and VIP-18 (YTM –6.71%, Z-spread – 532 b. p.), Z-spreads of which are exceeding spreads to swap of closest to them Eurobonds of VimpelCom, which will allow them to show a more considerable growth of the value.

Agreement at meeting in Geneva will support the Russian Eurobond market despite the day-off in Europe and the USA. Comments: PhosAgro. 

Description
Global Markets and Macroeconomic News ·    The celebration of Good Friday in the West will bring the activity of the world markets to the minimum. ·    The agreement was reached in Geneva on the start of the settlement of the Ukrainian crisis. ·    USA: the index of manufacturing activity from Philadelphia Fed jumped in April from 9.0 to 16.6 p. p., the maximum for 8 months. ·    USA: jobless claims totaled only 304 thousand, expectations – 315 thousand.   Debt Market ·    The Russian Eurobond market rose on Thursday for the second consecutive day against the "soft rhetoric" in the address of President of Russia Vladimir Putin. ·    The market had no time to reflect the evening news on the agreement of the "Geneva Quartet" on the measures to de-escalate tensions in Ukraine. ·    On Friday, despite the holiday in Europe and the US, because of which the liquidity in the market will be very low, we expect the strengthening of the liquid Russian Eurobonds.   Comments ·    PhosAgro submitted on Thursday the financial results under IFRS for 2013. The company's revenues decreased by 3% to $3.39 billion, EBITDA decreased by 33% to $752 million. EBITDA Margin, by the end of 2013, declined to 22.9% from 33.2% a year earlier.

By the end of 2012 the company's net debt was $1.23 billion, and the ratio of Net debt/LTM EBITDA - about 1.50x. This indicates that for 4Q13 PhosAgro had increased the net debt and the debt load. We estimate the published data as moderately negative from the point of view of the credit profile of the issuer and expect dynamics below the market of Eurobond PHORRU-18 (YTM – 5,12%, Z-spread – 378 b. p.).

Risks of sharp changes of the situation in Ukraine will hinder purchases in the market of Eurobonds on Wednesday. Comment: ALROSA, FESCO.

Description
Global Markets and Macroeconomic News ·         Global investors again hurry to take risks due to corporate reports in the U.S. and the absence of the negative news from China. ·         United States: consumer prices in March, excluding energy prices and food: +1.7% yoy; forecast: +1.6% yoy ·         USA: the index of manufacturing activity from New York Fed in April 1.29 p; prev. 5.61 p. ·         China: GDP in I quarter +7.4% yoy; forecast +7.3% yoy   Debt Market ·         The sharp escalation of the conflict in Eastern Ukraine resulted in the decrease of the market of Russian Eurobonds on Tuesday. ·         The yield of Russian issue RUSSIA-23 rose on Tuesday by 17 b. p. to 5.42% per annum. ·         The cost of 5-year CDS on Russia's foreign currency debt has increased since the beginning of the week by 30 b. p. to 261 b. p. ·         Risks of abrupt changes in the situation in the East of Ukraine will prevent purchases on Wednesday in the market of Eurobonds.   Comments ·         According to media reports, ALROSA agreed with the S&P on deferment until the end of May of the revision of the company’s rating after the failure of the sale of the gas assets of Rosneft, which ALROSA planned to use it for repayment of the short-term debt in the amount of $1.2 billion. During this time, the company hopes to transfer up to 90% of the short-term debt ($1.32 billion) in long-term loans. We estimate the agreement with S&P, as well as intentions to conduct changes in the credit portfolio of the company as positive developments from the perspective of the credit profile of the issuer, and note that along with the recently published moderately positive statements for 2013, these news may support the Eurobond of the company maturing in 2020 ALRSRU-20 (YTM – 6.77%, Z-spread – 473 b. p.). ·         Fitch Ratings downgraded the credit rating of FESCO in the national and foreign currency up to "B" from "B+", the forecast for ratings – "stable". As we noted in our special comment, in the fourth quarter and the second half of 2013 the credit profile of FESCO had continued to deteriorate. In this regard, the lowering of the credit rating will not be a surprise for investors, but will have a negative impact on the quotations of traded Eurobonds. However, we note that Eurobond FESHRU-18 (YTW – 14.89%, Z-spread – 1359 b. p.) with a call option in two years is traded at 79.67% of the nominal value and may be interesting for holding until the start of the call option.

The company's revenue and EBITDA grew by 12% and amounted to 168.5 billion rubles and 69.1 billion rubles, respectively. The ratio of the Net debt to EBITDA at the end of 2013 was 1.87x against 1.88x at the end of 2012. Given that by the end of 3Q13 the ratio of the Net debt to 12M EBITDA amounted to 2.18x, the decrease of this figure to 1.87x at the end of the year clearly indicates the improving credit profile of the issuer, and this factor, in our opinion, will be positively received by the market. In this connection we expect the dynamics above the market from the long Eurobond of the company ALRSRU-20 (YTM – 6.60%, Z-spread – 456 b. p.) in the next couple of weeks.

Since the aim of attracting funds by Norilsk Nickel consist in refinancing and maintaining the liquidity position, and the amount of net debt will not change, the impact of new loans on the credit profile of the issuer can be evaluated as neutral. Among trade ideas in papers of the company we note that the long Eurobonds of the MMC GMKNRM-20 (YTM – 5,66%, Z-spread – 360 b. p.) on the background of the premium in terms of Z-spreads in the amount of 50 b. p. to the short issue GMKNRM-18 looks slightly undervalued, and we expect the narrowing of this premium by 30-35 b. p. to the level of 15-20 b. p. in the medium term.
