U.S. Companies Rush to Bond Market to Refinance Commercial Paper
Tue, 17 Mar 2020 23:15:22 +0000
(Bloomberg) — With the market for short-term corporate debt seizing up in the U.S., some of the world’s biggest companies, including Exxon Mobil Corp. and PepsiCo Inc., turned back to the bond market to raise cash on Tuesday.In a sign of just how badly financial markets have been thrown out of whack by the coronavirus outbreak, yields on normally ultra-safe corporate debt maturing in as little as 30 days — known as commercial paper — have been surging faster than yields on bonds maturing in 10 years or more.The Federal Reserve announced steps to try to unlock the commercial paper market, but some borrowers opted not to wait for that to happen. Exxon led the day with an $8.5 billion sale, while Pepsi borrowed $6.5 billion.Many of the issuers Tuesday were planning to use the debt proceeds to refinance their commercial paper, which companies rely on to cover short-term financing needs like payroll.Read more: Fed Restarts Commercial Paper Facility to Ease Market StrainUsually it’s cheaper for companies to borrow in short-term markets rather than issuing longer-maturity bonds. But the nearer-term risk of recession and rising defaults have cast doubt on some companies’ ability to finance day-to-day operations. Companies have issued less commercial paper as a result and have often resorted to drawing down credit lines instead.“There’s definitely issues in the commercial paper market, and these companies are going to hit the bond market to shore up their financing,” said Daniel Oh, a portfolio manager at Osterweis Capital Management.The Fed will reintroduce the Commercial Paper Funding Facility, a measure from the financial crisis to shore up short-term funding markets, according to a statement Tuesday. The Treasury will provide $10 billion of credit protection from its Exchange Stabilization Fund. The Fed rolled out the facility in 2008 as global credit markets seized up.“By providing short-term credit, the CPFF will help American businesses manage their finances through this challenging period,” Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said in a separate statement.Verizon Communications Inc. led the charge of almost a dozen frequent and high-quality U.S. investment-grade issuers Tuesday that managed to sell $27.6 billion of debt. They were the first to do so since Friday.Read more: IG ANALYSIS US: Exxon, Verizon, PepsiCo Lead Biggest Day of 2020Europe’s market also rebooted, starting with three covered deals, among the safest of offerings due to their asset coverage.
