Abstract

In this paper, we provide descriptive evidence of primary market activity in the Eurobond market for the period 1980-2000. This study explores the Bondware Database that contains 33,024 publicly issued Eurobonds. We analyse some characteristics of the issuers (nationality, industry and credit quality), the intermediary parties (bookrunners, lead managers, ...) and the structures used for the bonds (currencies, size, years to maturity, interest and repayment structure, embedded options).

Keywords: Eurobond Market, Primary Market, Bondware

JEL Classification: G15, G100
