CUSIP ID Request Volume Projects Increases in U.S. and International Corporate Securities Issuance

Municipal Bond Issuance Trending Down After Five Months of Gains

NEW YORK, Aug. 14, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- CUSIP Global Services (CGS) today announced the release of its CUSIP Issuance Trends Report for July 2014.  The report, which tracks the issuance of new security identifiers as an early indicator of debt and capital markets activity, suggests continued growth in new U.S. corporate and international securities issuance and a decrease in municipal bond issuance over the next several weeks.

Total CUSIP requests for new U.S. and Canadian corporate equity and debt issues posted a 2.6% monthly increase in July versus June, with a total of 2,155 new identifiers requested over the course of the month.  On a year-over-year basis, July's corporate CUSIP request volume was up 1.7% versus the same period in 2013.

Municipal CUSIP volume fell in July after five consecutive months of gains.  A total of 1,011 municipal bond IDs were requested in July, down 24% from June totals.  On a year-over-year basis, municipal identifier demand is down 17% through July of 2014.

International debt and equity CUSIP International Numbers (CINS) requests saw mixed results this month.  Total requests for new international equity CINS grew 42% while international debt CINS requests decreased 6% from June to July.  On a year-over-year basis, international equity requests are up 64% and international debt CUSIP requests are up 25% in 2014.

"Though we're seeing a distinct downward trend in municipal bond and international debt-related issuance volume, the overall capital markets picture is still very strong as we peer a little deeper into the second half of 2014," said Richard Peterson, Director, Global Markets Intelligence, S&P Capital IQ.  "Clearly, actions by the Federal Reserve and European Central Bank will eventually have an impact on these numbers, but, for now, we are seeing signs of continued strength in new security issuance volume."
