3. ODM wins and Jimnah is FORCED to reform. However,seeing the bunch on the other side,we poor Kenyans are in trouble either way.

This bond is good for all banks,imagine everyone can start issuing if Barclays was successful.

The mortgage market would explode!!! property prices would mve up rapidly

All this being hampered by one man,for a lousy commission. Barclays,use your muscle,fix this crook!

You guys are on to something.This bond is clearly a good thing for Kenyans(both investors & home buyers).Obviously,its a matter of big business n bigger egos.I dont see it ever going thru unless  either of 2 things happen-1.Dyer & Blair are appointed transaction advisors or 2.Jimba leaves NSE.

You make profit when you buy,not when you sell!

KulaRaha,you are sport on that and if CMA was better regulated and followed the investment laws,then this character would never have been allowwed to deal with other people's money in his  life  time after Jimba credit saga.

Major conflict of interest,kabisa,  Equity (protection)

This is the second time the NSE has rejected Barclays' bond.

I think the NSE is hampering growth: if Barclays had appointed Dyer and Blair as agents,I am sure it would have gone through.

Major conflict of interest,that Mbaru guy is now becoming a nuisance kabisa.

leverage in no way makes a company an attractive share. If anything,investors are averse of such strategies,inter alia,because charge holders take precedence over shareholders thereby diminishing their dues. moreover,it exposes the firm to a greater DFL which is quite detrimental to the firm and most importantly the shareholders.

the only thing to celebrate about is a reduction in agency costs due to increased regulation by CMA NSE and chargeholders due to bond indenture.

however this may not be quite significant considering bbk is a multinational.

further,nse has just rejected the said bond !

Bond market,may I suggest

BBK,let me see.
-Largest bank in kenya,
-Just hired like 1400 sales people this year.
-I have not heard anything bad about their services
-They have a business account that actually helps business grow a customer base abroad by setting up trips.
- And now with this bond,can serve longer range customers.

What is the downside with owning a piece of this bank?
