Daiwa triumphs in AsiaMoney Awards

10 February 2012

Daiwa Capital Markets has been recognised for its role in three major deals, winning Best Equity-Linked Offering, Best Local Currency Bond and Best Equity Offering in AsiaMoney’s annual Japan Awards.

The award for Best Equity-Linked Offering recognised Daiwa’s role as sole bookrunner in KDDI’s 200 billion Yen convertible bond, the largest convertible bond issue globally of 2011.

“This single deal vaulted Daiwa Capital Markets to the top of the equity-linked league tables,” AsiaMoney noted its award justification. “It showed the synergy value behind Daiwa’s acquisition…of the global convertible bond and Asian equity derivatives business of Belgian bank KBC.”

Panasonic’s 500 billion yen issue last March, meanwhile, was recognised as Best Local Currency Bond, with Daiwa acting as bookrunner. This same deal was recently awarded IFR’s Yen Bond of the Year Award.

The Best Equity Offering award recognised Daiwa’s role, again as bookrunner, in Resona Holdings 572 billion yen common equity issue.

AsiaMoney magazine has been published by Euromoney Institutional Investor since 1989 and is one of the most widely read publications serving the Asian financial markets.
