Riksgälden: Kingdom of Sweden issues dollar at record low level

Kingdom of Sweden issues USD 1.5 billion (approximately SEK 10 billion) in a
new three-year bond to a yield of 0.952 per cent. The proceeds will be used
to refinance maturing on-lending to the Riksbank.

The transaction was priced at mid-swaps minus 4 basis points. This is the
second time the Kingdom borrows at a lower level than other sovereign
issuers, US treasury excluded.

- We saw an attractive opportunity with strong demand, which provided us with
a very tight price. The final book size exceeded USD 1.9 billion, says Maria
Norström, Head of Funding.
