With a Size of BD 200 Million Commencement of Subscription in the 11th Issue of the Government Development Bonds through Bahrain Bourse
Apr 28, 2016
Bahrain Bourse (BHB) announced that as of Monday 2nd May 2016, and according to the invitation announced by the Central Bank of Bahrain (CBB), Bahraini and non-Bahraini investors can directly subscribe through the primary market of BHB in the Government Development Bonds No. 11 that have been issued by the CBB on behalf of the Government of Bahrain by giving their orders to registered brokers at Bahrain Bourse. Thereafter, investors will be able to trade the bonds in the secondary market at BHB once listed on BHB, which is expected to be on 22nd May 2016. 
The Bourse specified that the subscription period through the registered brokers is effective Monday 2nd of May 2016 until Tuesday 3rd of May 2016. 

The BD200 million securities issued at a par value of BD1 each on 5th May 2016 for a period of 5 years ending on 5th May 2021. The annual fixed return on these securities is 5.875%, and will be paid every six months on 5th November and 5th May every year throughout the period of this issue, in which the first coupon payment will be paid on 5th November 2016 and the last coupon payment on 5th May 2021. 

The Central Bank of Bahrain issued the Government Development Bond on behalf of the Government of Bahrain. The Government of Bahrain directly guarantees the Development Bonds securities. 
One of the main advantages of subscribing through Bahrain Bourse is the ability to own bonds directly (beneficiary ownership). 

In order to encourage retail investors, the Bourse specified a minimum subscription of 500 BHD (500 bonds). BHB has also determined a minimum allotment of 10,000 bonds per subscriber applying for an amount of BHD 10,000 and above, while the remaining quantity will be allocated on pro rata bases. 
Upon listing of the bonds, investors will be able to trade them in the secondary market through a registered broker at BHB during the trading session, which is held on a daily basis from Sunday to Thursday.
