The board of directors of Union Capital has decided to issue unsecured subordinated redeemable non-convertible bond of Tk 2.0 billion in face value through private placement.

Face value per unit (lot size) of the bond is Tk 10 million only with seven years tenure, grace period two years and coupon range is 9.0 per cent to 12 per cent per year, according to a disclosure on Monday.

The company has recommended 5.0 per cent stock dividend for the year ended on December 31, 2018 (subject to the approval of Bangladesh Bank and Shareholders). The annual general meeting is scheduled to be held on June 20.
