Brazilian miner Vale S.A. issues U.S.-dollar bonds

Brazilian miner Vale S.A. tapped the U.S. dollar debt market for the first time in almost four years as a commodity-price recovery brings down the Brazilian mining giant’s borrowing costs.

The company’s subsidiary Vale Overseas Limited, issued and priced its senior unsecured $1.25bn bond due 2021. The notes are guaranteed by Vale S.A.

Joint Books are BB Securities, Bank of America, Bradesco BBI, HSBC and Santander.

The company, which last sold U.S. dollar bonds in 2012, would use proceeds from the issuance to develop its iron-ore project, which it plans to commission later in 2016.

Separately, the company plans on divesting assets worth $10bn by 2017 after reporting a fourth-quarter net loss of $8.6bn.
