Landsbanki bonds settled at 1.25% and 0.125%

Landbanki, along fellow Icelandic banks Glitnir and Kaupthing, is in technical default after being rescued by the country’s government.

When CDSs are cash-settled, protection sellers pay protection buyers the par value of the underlying bonds, minus the recovery rate. The results of the Landsbanki auction mean sellers of protection on senior debt will pay 98.75% of par to settle the contracts. Protection-sellers on the bank’s subordinated debt, meanwhile, will pay 99.875%.
