SIA may upsize the tranche to $750m if there are overwhelming response. The interest on the bonds are payable semi-annually on 28 Sep and 28 March and will mature on 28 March 2024. The offer will close on 26 March 2019 at 12pm. Seasoning framework The offer is made under the seasoning framework.

Temasek launched its first retail bond last year and Singapore Airlines is the next to do this. Hopefully, we can see better
