SingPost says wholly-owned subsidiary SingPost Group Treasury has priced $250 million SGD Senior Unsecured Fixed Rate Notes due 2030, guaranteed by SingPost.

The Singapore-offered notes will be issued under the $1 billion Multicurrency Debt Issuance Programme and will be issued in registered form and denominations of $250,000 each.

The interest rate of the notes is fixed at 2.53% per annum payable semi-annually in arrear.
