SECURED BOND UPDATE
On July 9, 2012, International Airlines Group (IAG) announced that its wholly owned subsidiary British Airways was planning to issue a sterling secured bond. This was subject to investor feedback and market conditions.
Despite this week's improvement in the underlying credit rating of British Airways, there was a lack of demand for this bond at a price which would compare with other financing alternatives. IAG has therefore decided not to progress with the bond issue.
