This morning a couple bulge bracket firms, one in particular, had a handful of deals waiting to go but alas with futures down 100 points and European equities in the red, issuers and leads felt volatility would rule the day on the heels of Friday’s 394 drop, the market’s lowest since June 24th. Go/No Go calls favored standing down with two exceptions – two domestic utilities, Interstate Power and Light Co. and Southern Company both of which took advantage of their sector’s defensive nature to price two very strong deals in today’s IG dollar DCM. Mischler served as active Co-Manager on Interstate P&L and was an Underwriter on Southern Company’s $25 par 60NC5 Series 2016A Junior Subordinated Notes new issue due 10/01/2076.

The session finished with only those two deals priced totaling $1.2b with a promise from the guy-in-the-corner that tomorrow WILL be a VERY busy day! Still, in only the 7th business day of September including two Friday’s, one of which preceded Labor Day weekend, we’ve already issued over 46% of the syndicate midpoint average forecast for the entire month with 14 business left to go!

Below please find my synopsis of everything Syndicate and Secondary from today’s debt capital markets, including the investment grade corporate bond data drill down as seen from my seat here in Syndicate, Sales and DCM.
