Russian finance minister says Eurobond top-up yield at 3.9 pct

MOSCOW, Sept 22 (Reuters) - The yield on a Russian sovereign Eurobond top-up was 3.9 percent, Finance Minister Anton Siluanov said on Thursday, as high demand allowed Russia to offer investors a lower yield than initial guidance.

Siluanov added the new Eurobonds were placed solely among foreign investors, with U.S. investors accounting for 53 percent of Thursday's $1.25 billion placement.

He said around 200 investors from the United States, Britain, Europe, Asia and Russia had submitted bids and that demand for the paper exceeded $7.5 billion. (Reporting by Darya Korsunskaya; Writing by Alexander Winning; Editing by Katya Golubkova)
