Video-streaming firm iQIYI, backed by search engine giant Baidu, returned to the capital markets on Wednesday with a $1.05 billion six-year convertible bond, in what is the second-largest such deal by a U.S.-listed Chinese company.
The deal is also the latest example of the growing popularity of some of the convertible bonds among newly listed Chinese tech companies that are searching for growth capital.
iQIYI sold the bonds with a coupon of 2%, at the bottom of an indicative range of 2% to 2.5%, successfully managing to lower its borrowing costs compared to its last such offer that carried a coupon of 3.75% and had a shorter tenor.
