China Bank Capital bagged two awards at the Asian Banking & Finance (ABF) Corporate and Investment Banking Awards 2021: Syndicated Deal of the Year and Debt Deal of the Year.
China Bank’s investment banking arm won the Syndicated Loan Deal of the Year award for spearheading the P12 billion corporate notes facility of Puregold Price Club, Inc. as mandated lead arranger, joint lead underwriter, and sole bookrunner—the supermarket chain’s largest syndicated loan to date.
The Debt Deal of the Year award is for the P6.48 billion maiden fixed rate bonds issuance of consumer foods manufacturer Del Monte Philippines. China Bank Capital was the joint lead underwriter and joint bookrunner of the offering.
The latest awards reflect China Bank Capital’s experience and expertise in investment banking, corporate finance, and transaction structuring.
“We endeavor to be our clients’ preferred and trusted partner and enable them to achieve their fundraising objectives and strategic goals amidst the challenging environment,” said China Bank Capital President Ryan Martin S. Tapia.
ABF recognized over 40 banks and investment houses across the Asia Pacific region this year. The winners were judged based on the companies’ achievements, solutions to the challenge experienced in the past year, project effectiveness, and client impact.
