- Following Islamic Treasury Bills offering on 30 September, 2015 for the first time, a new series of these Bills, with the ticker Akhza3, went public in Iran Fara Bourse stock market in the previous day, paving the way for the development of debt market. Holding the nominal value of $27.5 per bill, they were issued at $275.71 mn worth, with $23.49 price discovery and maturity date on 12 October 2016. As to this fresh offering is the presence of foreign investors along with domestic participants among the buyers, owing to the government’s guarantee for such debt securities. Thanks to capital injection into such trades, their liquidity risk is partly mitigated, having positive impact on their return rate adjustment. In the coming business days, other portions of ITBs will be published; this, itself, indicates the determination to expand debt market among regulators and decision-makers in the country. This event was also concurrent with the government’s determination to settle a significant portion of its aggregated defaulted debt until the end of 2017, mainly through using debt finance tools, i.e. Ijara Sukuks, Settlement Bonds, and Treasury Bills. Experts in the field believe that settling the government’s debt amid this market has other positive consequences for the economy, including the formation of the debt market and deepening of the capital market.
