Wimm-Bill-Dann Foods has placed its second issue of ruble bonds to the amount of RUB3bn (US$105m). The issue was priced at par with a coupon of 9%.

In a statement, the company said the deal was nearly two times oversubscribed. The maturity period for the bonds is five years.

"The company is pleased with the results of the transaction and intends to use the proceeds to refinance Wimm-Bill-Dann's current indebtedness and to finance future capital expenditures," the company said.
