Ukraine Announces Completion of the Open-Market Repurchase of its GDP-Linked Securities Expiring 31 May 2040




As highlighted in the Medium-Term State Debt Management Strategy for 2019 - 2022 published by the Ministry of Finance, Ukraine's debt management strategy includes pro-active liability management operations in order to smoothen Ukraine's state debt service profile and reduce peak pressure on the state budget. Such liability management operations may involve the buyback of government securities, subject to favourable market conditions. Consistent with its previously announced liability management strategy, the Ministry of Finance has initiated a liability management exercise consisting of the open-market repurchase of its GDP-linked securities expiring 31 May 2040 (the "GDP-Linked Securities"). As at 14 August 2020, the Ministry of Finance has successfully instructed the repurchase of approximately 10 per cent. of the total notional amount of GDP-Linked Securities outstanding. The Ministry of Finance has no current intension to resell such securities.


In connection with the continued execution of Ukraine's debt management strategy, the Ministry of Finance may undertake, at any time and from time to time, the repurchase, cancellation or exchange of additional outstanding securities of Ukraine, including the GDP-Linked Securities, in open-market purchases, privately negotiated transactions or otherwise depending on prevailing market conditions. If such repurchases are undertaken, the amounts of GDP-Linked Securities or other securities targeted in any such exercises may be material.
