Sovcombank, a major private Russian bank, is holding a road show of perpetual subordinated dollar-denominated Eurobonds. The deal is scheduled for Thursday, 30 Jan 2020. The bonds have a call-option no earlier than 5.25 years after the offering. Indicative yield has not been disclosed yet. Fitch is expected to assign a B rating to the issue.

Estimated pricing: In evaluating of fair yield of the upcoming Sovcombank T1 issue, we considered other outstanding subordinated fixed-term and perpetual bonds of Russian financial institutions. The last initial offer of perpetual Eurobonds was by HCF Bank (-/-/BB-) placed in late 2019. HCFB perp (B-) is currently trading above par with YTC 8.2%. Sovcombank's perpetual notes should fairly offer a discount to HCFB, given Sovcombank's more conservative business model, larger scope of business and higher credit rating of the planned issue ('B' exp). The lower end of the yield range is seen at Sovcombank 30 subordinated Eurobonds (YTC 6.3%). The gap in the cost of raising Tier 1 and Tier 2 capital stands on average at least at 100-120 bps, according to our estimates.

Thus, our estimate of Sovcombank's yield range is 7.5-8% per annum. We believe below 7.5% is not attractive and has limited upside potential. During the actual placement we recommend to put pricing orders closer to the upper end of the mentioned yield range.

Bank’s top-managers are also it’s major shareholders: Dmitry and Sergei Khotimsky (23 and 8% of equity, respectively) and Dmitry Gusev (6%).
