Brazil to buy back $1.82 bln in Global 2019 notes

BRASILIA, Nov 9 (Reuters) - Brazil plans to buy back $1.82 billion worth of sovereign bonds, fully withdrawing its 5.875 percent Global 2019 notes from the market.

Brazil's national treasury said it will exercise the call option on the notes, issued in 2009, redeeming them at 104.373 percent of their face value of $1.7 billion plus interest.

The move is in line with a policy allowing bonds seen as no longer adequately reflecting the country's credit to be bought back. (Reporting by Jake Spring; Editing by James Dalgleish)
