South Africa's Eskom plans foreign bond sale in two months - CEO

JOHANNESBURG, June 7 (Reuters) - South African state power utility Eskom plans to sell foreign debt in around two months following an improvement in investor sentiment, its chief executive said on Thursday.

“We are seeing an increase in appetite from investors. From July last year to January we couldn’t even sell 1 billion rand ($78 million) of debt, but the situation has changed dramatically,” CEO Phakamani Hadebe.

“We plan a foreign issuance in around two months’ time.”
