SBI Bonds Issue

by Manshu on October 14, 2010

in Fixed Deposits

Click here to read about the latest bond issue which will open on February 21st 2011.

SBI Retail Bonds are the latest offering from SBI which is coming up with a bond issue that opens on 18th October and closes on 25th October. This is the second big bond issue this month with the IDFC issue still running.

A lot of people will be comparing the SBI bond issue to the IDFC one, so let me say upfront that they’re quite different in one key aspect which is the tax savings. The IDFC bond issue was an infrastructure bond under Section 80CCF, and could get your taxable income reduced by up to Rs. 20,000.

The SBI retail bonds are not covered under this, so you won’t get any 80CCF benefits. Now let’s look at some of its main features.

Interest rate on SBI Bonds

There are two series of SBI Bonds – Series 1 Lower Tier II Bonds gets you an interest rate of 9.25%, and has a tenor of 10 years, and the Series 2 Lower Tier II Bond has an interest rate of 9.50%, and a tenor of 15 years.

This compares quite favorably to the fixed deposit rates SBI offers as the SBI fixed deposit interest rates for 5 – 8 years is 7.50%, and more than 8 years is 7.75%. These bonds are not covered under deposit insurance since they are not fixed deposits, and are not redeemable at the option of the bondholders.

There is a call option or redemption with SBI according to which they can redeem the series 1 bonds after 5 years, and series 2 bonds after 10 years. If they don’t do that then the interest rate will rise by 0.50%.

Demat account is compulsory for investing in SBI Bonds

You need a demat account to invest in these SBI bonds, and your bonds will be held in dematerialized form. If you don’t have a demat account and wish to invest in them then you will have to open a demat account fairly quickly.

Tax implications of the SBI Retail Bond

SBI Retail Bonds are different from the IDFC bonds in the sense that they are not covered under section 80 CCF, so there won’t be any reduction from your taxable income because of investment in this bond.

The interest from these bonds will be treated as income that gets added to your other income and you will pay tax on it accordingly.

SBI Bonds to be listed on NSE

These bonds will be listed on the NSE, and as far as I could understand you will be able to freely trade the bonds even within the 5 year period. So you could hold the bond till maturity or sell it on the exchange if a market develops for it. The prospectus states that all formalities to list the bond will be completed within 30 days of date of closure, so the bonds will be listed on the exchange to buy and sell fairly soon.

When will the interest be paid on the SBI bonds?

The interest on both the series of SBI bonds will be paid out on April 2 of every year.

What is the minimum application size on the SBI bond?

The minimum amount you need to invest in these bonds is Rs. 10,000, you can subscribe in multiples of Rs. 10,000 after that.

How do these SBI Retail Bonds compare with fixed deposits?

Quite favorably because of the higher interest rate and option of listing on NSE. People are expecting these retail bonds to over-subscribe, so let’s see how it goes.

These were some important points about the SBI retail bonds that’ll help you make a decision whether they are right for you or not. If you have any other questions, please leave a comment, and I’ll try to answer them.

Hello,

Can these bonds can be kept as security against a loan taken? Or is that solely at the discretion of the loan disbursing bank?

Thanks in advance

Manshu October 15, 2010 at 3:17 am

The terms of the issue in the prospectus state that the bank shall not grant any loans against these bonds. Here is what it says:

In accordance with the RBI guidelines applicable to the Bank, it shall not grant loans against the security of the Bonds.

Since this is going to be issued in dematerialized form, and listed on the stock exchange, there won’t be any TDS on it.

i want to know if i leave the bond amount inthe demat a/c&withdraw after 1-year or 2-yrs wihout opting for interest payment will there be any appreciation in the amount.where will sbi invest the bond amt?in the market?kindly answer.

Reply

Manshu October 15, 2010 at 3:27 am

Well, the interest will be paid out to you, so I don’t think you can opt out of getting it. Since the bond is going to trade on NSE, you can sell it there and the price you get should ideally reflect the unearned interest payments.

The bond issue is to strengthen the Tier II capital of SBI, and I read that the amount is small (for SBI) because they are experimenting with bonds that can be listed in NSE. I really do not know where they’re going to invest that money.

Monu October 15, 2010 at 5:23 am

Whether the Bond will list at a premium because as per Bond Valuation theory Bond Value is a function of interest rate. So they are offering 9.5% which is 2% higher than the rate offered on FDs by Banks so we will get 2% higher for 10 years, which if we discount it @7.5% we will see its present value comes to around Rs 14 per 100. So I expect the bond to list @ 14% premium. So can anyone advise me whether I am write or wrong, because I have never invested in Nonds before.

Reply

Arun October 15, 2010 at 7:12 am

Hi Monu,

Your basic logic is correct. However FD are covered under deposit insurance while these bonds are not and this makes bonds more risky thus coupon rate has to be higher. In my opinion you will not get more than 2-3% listing gain on these bonds. Same happened with Sriram Transport NCDs (new ones) in May.

Arun

Reply

Sumanth October 19, 2010 at 4:00 am

Dont compare with Shriram (risk levels differ). Companies in SBI league should not offer more than 8-8.5%. So the 7-12% listing premium is for sure within the 10-15yr schemes.

Reply

Arun October 19, 2010 at 4:29 am

I agree Sumanth that risk level is different in SBI and Shriram but Shriram coupon rate was 10+. 8/8.5% one can get in 5 Yr FD which is insured. Hence 9.25/9.5 is not too high. I will be surprised if we get more than 2% listing gain.

Arun

Reply

Sumanth October 19, 2010 at 5:03 am

Bond theory states use comparable discounting rate. Shriram is not comparable to SBIN – due to risk levels. Shriram will have a discounting rate ~10 – note blue chips were raising money at 13-14% also a year back.
Am not sure how much SBI gives in deposits – but simple bond tenets – longer the life of the bond more impact on price & so with the the coupon> discounting rate: both in this case.

Hi Monu

You’ re almost there. SBI bonds will definitely list at a premium……My guess is a premium of 10% at least.

I understand the retail category applicants can apply for max. Rs 5 lakh. Now if I apply for Rs 5 Lakh on the 1st day , will I qualify for the first come first serve rule to be followed for allotment.

Reply

Manshu October 16, 2010 at 4:23 am

That’s a good point. The bond is reserved 50% for retail, 25% for HNI and 25% for Corporates etc. If one category is left under-subscribed then their quota will be allocated to Retail, HNI and Corporate in that order.

If there is over-subscription – then from the applications received on the day of over-subscription – preference will be given to Series 2 Lower Tier II Bonds on a first come first serve basis, and balance will be allotted on pro-rata basis to Series 1 Lower Tier II bonds.

The relevant part is in page 160, 161 in the prospectus under Basis of Allotment, Issue structure for those of you interested in reading through it. And if anyone else has heard any different then let’s hear it.

pinal shah October 17, 2010 at 11:56 pm

Hi, can anyone tell me one answer.
as per detail given, this bonds will be traded in stock exchanges after 5 years. i am not aware about SBI but other bond holder has provided features like buyback after 5 years (like in IDFC, & L & T in series 3 and 4 bonds which are paying less intertest), so can series 1 and 2 holders can sell their bonds in stock market after listing? (those having 10 yrs maturity)
In a simple language, after 5 yrs can we trade our bonds on BSE or NSE if we have any one of series bonds? or multiple bonds with each series?
If we can trade than the buyback features will be useless.
I want to have some clarity on this. as not a single site is providing clarity on this part.

Reply

Manshu October 18, 2010 at 12:07 pm

Not after 5 years, this bond should list within a few months, and then trade based on demand and supply. The interest rates and price of bonds are inversely proportional so the price will be determined based on interest rate movements.

The point is that having a bond that is listed on the market allows you to sell it off if you so choose even before the maturity and thus provide additional liquidity. This enhances liquidity, doesn’t make it useless. Provides you one more option to exit.

mohan6555 November 7, 2010 at 10:12 am

sbi bond will be traded as soon as allotment process completed.not after 5 years as it is not a tax saving instrument. only tax saving bonds like idfc,l&t traded after 5 year lock in period completed. in future fm may reduce lock in period as he accumulate reserve by selling psu

Bala October 18, 2010 at 7:24 am

Hello I have 4 queries

1. How does this bond compare with Kisan vikas Patra which doubles the amount invested in 8 years and 7 month.
2. Can you please help if there is an option for interest re-investment.
3. Is the interest offered is compound interest??
4. If in the future the interest rate increases ( which looks like is likely to happen) will the bond value on NSE decrease and hence negate the advantage of NSE listing.

Kindly loooking forward for your advice so than can make a decision on subscription.

Reply

Manshu October 18, 2010 at 8:02 am

1. Looks like the Vikas Patra has an interest rate of about 8.5% so that’ s lower than the yield on the SBI bond, however the SBI bonds don’t allow you to re-invest the interest so that’s something to think about.

2. As far as I can tell, they are going to pay out the interest in April every year and there doesn’t seem to be an option of re-investment.

3. If they’re going to pay off the interest every year then your principal is going to remain the same.

4. Bond prices and interest rates are inversely proportional so what you say will take place, however listing on NSE provides liquidity, and you can hold the bonds till maturity to get the 9.25 or 9.5% yield.

In that sense, listing is doing what it is meant to do – i.e. provide liquidity, so movement of bond prices is a feature not a bug :)

Reply

Bala October 18, 2010 at 8:29 am

Thanks a lot Manshu,

That was helpful, I did a little calculation and found that to have the same yield like kisan vikas patra the bond interest rate should be around 12% per annum. i.e. With 8.25% compound annulay kisan viaks patra gives me around 12% return.

I think i will skip the bond as i can afford to leave the money in locked position for few years.

Many thanks again

Reply

Manshu October 18, 2010 at 10:12 am

Thanks for responding Bala. I appreciate it. Also, how did you arrive at the 12% figure?

Something that gives you about 8.5% compounded annually will double in 8 and a half years, so shouldn’t the equivalent bond yield be 8.5% compounded annually, not 12%.

Can you please tell me what I am missing and where is the 12% coming from?

Reply

bala October 18, 2010 at 11:42 am

Oh!! sorry Manshu,

What i meant to say is to obtain an equivalent of 8.5% compound interest over eight and half years, we should have 12% normal interest rate over the same period.

For eg. Rs100 invested for 8.5% compound interest for ten years will be Rs226, but same amount with 12% of simple interest over 10 years will only Rs220. Thats what i wanted to explain.

Because i am looking at long term this bond yield will not be a wise decision if i decide to leave the bond for maturity.

any help :)

Reply

Manshu October 18, 2010 at 12:50 pm

@Bala,

Thanks again for your response! You have obviously given this good thought. I’d also think about how much inflation eats into the amount you get after maturity.

In the sense that with SBI Bonds you get some interest payment every year which you can re-invest at a rate (probably lesser than 9.25%, maybe a 50 – 100 basis points lesser), so you have that cash flow coming in every year, which has a certain present value.

On the other hand you get a lump-sum from the Kisan Vikas Patra scheme after about 8 and a half years, but what’s the present value of that?

Given the high rates of inflation this is something to think about; how do the two cash flows compare?

I am just thinking aloud here, and you’ve brought in an excellent point to this discussion which I hadn’t thought about earlier.

Reply

bala October 18, 2010 at 1:37 pm

@Manshu

This is really getting exiting!!, well inflation is really a very good thought, but thats the reallity of life and the way banks and lenders make money isn’t it.

As per data average inflation rate of india for last 40 years is around 8%, so if we consider that the next 10 years will tread along the same line, actual return when adjusted for inflation is around 1.25% for SBI bond and 0.5% cumulative interest.

Given your idea that we will invest the interest money every year into a different deposit scheme, the rate of interest when adjusted to inflation will only be between 50 to 100 basis point, again simple interest. ( I am making a big assumption that when inflation increases interest rate increases and vice versa).

My God, Now i am starting to think even if investing in a long term fixed deposits makes any sense. :)

Manshu October 18, 2010 at 3:40 pm

Reply

Parth Patel October 21, 2010 at 10:42 pm

That is exactly why equities trump all other investment classes in the long-term, as they are the direct beneficiaries of inflation.
Inflation comes from the price increases of companies’ products, and hence the companies always have inflation-adjusted returns in the long-term.

For bonds, even according to economic theory, their long-term yields will equal Inflation + Risk premium. As gilts and FDs have very little risk, their risk premiums are also very less.

Dear Sir

Just want to know that, is it not a better idea to invest the money in Post office MIS + RD scheme (more than 10.5% assured interest) than investing in SBI bonds which will attract capital gain tax as well

Reply

Manshu February 21, 2011 at 4:55 pm

Prashant – POMIS interest income also attracts tax like the interest on SBI bonds. The capital gains come into play only in a scenario where you sell it in the market and make some capital gains which may not always happen. But other than that – yeah the yield there is slightly higher.

Reply

VK March 10, 2011 at 3:02 am

Prashant – PO MIS & RD combination would not compete with this bond issue in terms of yield. PO MIS gives 8% p.a.on a monthly basis. Which can be further reinvested in PO RD. The PO RD gives an interest rate of 7.5% quarterly compounding. The MIS also has a maturity bonus of 5% at the time of maturity. So in all interest generated @8% is reinvested @7.5% so the overall compounding interest is somewhere in between these two rates. Even after considering the 5% bonus for 6 yrs of MIS deposit, the SBI’s 9.95% clearly wins in terms of the yield. You can also invest the yearly payout of SBI in PO RD. Do you get the idea ?
People do keep a look out for a sequel of this issue. SBI will be coming with such an issue in the F.Y.2011-12.

Hi Manshu,

I have demat account with BN Rathi
I want to buy SBI bonds.

Could you clarify me the following doubts

1. SBI bonds are trading at a premium of about 5% — what does this mean?
2. If I need money in future, can I sell them in NSE?
I buy them now for 1Lac, then receive the annual interest of approx 10k , then immediately sell the bonds in NSE. will I get my principal of 1Lac(exactly) or less or more?

3. what if I sell them before getting yearly interest? say 8 months, still SBI will pay me interest for 8 months?

4. while making a FD, I usually give them form 15h, so that tax will not be deducted
similar thing can be done in SBI bonds?

Thanks

Bala

Reply

Manshu February 22, 2011 at 6:56 pm

1. This means that bonds are trading at 5% above their face value which is 10,000 in the new issue.
2. Yes. You will get less principal after the interest has been paid out.
3. No, you won’t be paid any interest, but the price at which the bond is trading might still be higher than the face value.
4. I’m not sure about this point, though I think it can be done.

now interest value will be added everyday
after 1st month of issue, assuming 10% interest = 1000/12 = 83, so value = 10,083
after 2rd month of issue, value = 10,166
after 1 year, value = 11,000
now SBI pays an annual interest of 1000Rs, value becomes 10,000 again
if there is any premium of say 3% then the value would be 10,300

in future if the mkt interest rate decreases to say 8%, many want to buy this from secondary mkt to get 9.75% from SBI, so value would increase(premium)

if the mkt interest rate increases to say 12%, no one wants to buy this, so value may decrease(discount) or trade without any premium

Please give your feedback

Thanks

It is expected to list at a premium right off the bat because demand is expected to outstrip the supply. The second part of your comment is right which is that bond prices and interest rates are inversely related.

regarding buying the bond with premium depends upon the trend of the mkt interest rate,whether it goes up or nosedive and the bond issuing companies trust worth .sbi bond fetch higher premium in the 15 years bond compared to 10 yeras sbi bond.l&t fin ncd fetch higher premium compared to indianinfoline fin ncd.
