Ukraine Fixed Income Weekly (August 25, 2015)

Last week all sovereign Eurobonds save Ukraine-15 lost in prices. The long-term Ukraine-21 and Ukraine-23 lost 2.3 cents on average and traded at 56 cents. The Ukraine-16 and Ukraine-22 lost 1.6 cents on average, while trading at 56 cents. Ukraine-17 and Ukraine-20 lost 0.7 cents on average to trade at 56 cents and 55 cents respectively. And the Ukraine-15 gained 1.1 cent, trading at 61 cents. The rumors about the likelihood of a 20% haircut on the sovereign debt mostly drag the sovereign bond quotations down. The trend will mostly strengthened after confirmation of the deal, in our view.
