The coupon payments are scheduled every six months, with the first call date on June 11, 2029. The subordinated notes are rated AA1 by RAM Rating Services Bhd, according to the bank.

According to Hong Leong Bank, RM400 million of the proceeds from the subordinated notes were used to subscribe to RM400 million in Tier 2 subordinated sukuk murabahah issued by its wholly owned subsidiary, Hong Leong Islamic Bank Bhd, on even date.

Meanwhile, the remaining proceeds from the subordinated notes will be used for the bank’s working capital, general banking purposes, other corporate needs, and the refinancing of existing borrowings, subordinated debt issued by the bank, or any existing subordinated notes issued under the programme.
