MUMBAI, July 9 (Reuters) - India’s Hindustan Petroleum Corp Ltd has raised up to $500 million with its first ever overseas bond sale, the company said in a statement late on Sunday.
The company sold a 10-year, fixed-rate, unsecured dollar bond with a 4 percent coupon payable semi-annually and a maturity date of July 2027, the statement said.
The notes are rated Baa3 by Moody’s and BBB- by Fitch. India’s third biggest state-owned refiner will use the proceeds to fund capital expenditure. (Reporting by Promit Mukherjee; Editing by Catherine Evans)
