Often companies issue (new) bonds to settle debt that is to mature soon. This strategy is called (debt) refinancing. This is particularly attractive for a company when the country's interest rate environment - set by the central bank - is easing. Sumber Alfaria Trijaya, listed on the Indonesia Stock Exchange, is one of the companies that uses this tactic. Over the next couple of years the company plans to issue IDR 3 trillion (approx. USD $226 million) worth of bonds, divided in two series, to refinance its existing bonds.
