SBI looks to raise $500 million via dollar bonds

India’s largest lender, the State Bank of India (SBI), has reportedly contacted international banks to explore options for a possible bond issue, with initial estimates pointing towards $500m. The bank is expected to formally involve investment banks in the project within a week, with the issue’s size dependent on the response from investors. The regulatory framework allowing companies to issue securities to investors in the US and other markets without registering with the SEC is expected to help to bring down costs.
