JBS plans bonds issue abroad, sources say
JBS, the world's largest beef producer by revenue, is planning to take advantage of the growing demand from international investors for Brazilian securities and to proceed with plans to issue bonds abroad next week, according to two bankers with knowledge of the operation.
The company has hired Bradesco BBI, BB Securities, Deutsche Bank, JP Morgan and Santander to coordinate the operation, the sources said. It will hold a road show for potential investors on Friday, January 25, in Los Angeles and Boston, and on Monday (January 28) in New York and London, one of the bankers said.
JBS has not decided on the amount it plans to raise through the issue, or when the bonds will mature. The details of the offer will be decided after the road show, said the banker.
