VIS Group among the first in Russia to place bonds within the framework of a non-concession PPP project in the amount of RUB 4 billion

The bonds were issued within the framework of the VIS Group's public-private partnership project that entails the creation of a new network of educational and cultural institutions in Yakutsk and its suburbs.

During bid collection, oversubscription equaled 60%, which led to a 10-bp reduction in the coupon rate. The final rate is up to 9.15%.


In April 2023, VIS Group placed the third issue of exchange-traded bonds.

On April 4, 2023, the Group placed the third issue of exchange-traded bonds in the amount of 1.5 billion rubles under the program registered on the Moscow Exchange. The rating agency "Expert RA" has determined the rating of the issue at a high level of ruA.
