In February, the corporate bond market saw three successful issuances worth a total of 2,000 billion VND. This included one private placement from Son Kim Land Corporation, which raised 500 billion VND with a nominal interest rate of 13.5% per annum for a two-year term, as well as two public offerings from Massan Group worth 1,500 billion VND with a fixed interest rate of 9.5% for the first two periods.

While the private issuance value in February decreased by about 17.4% compared to the previous month, the total issuance value showed a significant increase. FiinRatings anticipates that this positive trend may continue in the future, particularly after the issuance of Decree No. 08/2023/ND-CP by the government.
