Chad Extends Deadline for $221 Million Bond Sale by 3 Weeks

June 30, 2011

June 30 (Bloomberg) -- Chad has extended the deadline for subscribing for subscribing for a 100 billion CFA franc ($221 million) bond sale by 3 weeks to July 14, the country’s government said yesterday in a statement distributed in Cameroon.

The delay is to accommodate investor’s requests, Chad said.

The five-year, local-currency bonds, will be listed on the Libreville, Gabon-based Central African Stock Exchange. The proceeds will be used to fund investment projects and pay off existing debt, Chad said on June 21.
