Transpower New Zealand, owner and operator of the national power grid, is making an offer of up to $200 million of unsecured, unsubordinated bonds.

The announcement comes after Transpower chairman Mark Verbiest said yesterday the state-owned enterprise must raise $3 billion of debt over the next five years, some of which would have to come from the domestic market.

The bonds are being offered with terms to maturity of four years (floating rate notes) and seven years (fixed rate notes), at the company’s discretion.

It expects bonds will be assigned a credit rating of AA- by Standard & Poor’s and A1 by Moody’s.

Announcements on interest rates and issue margins are expected on Nov. 25.
