Statistical Press Release - Securities issues - May 2019

Today, Banco de Portugal publishes statistics, in Table A.25 of the Statistical Bulletin and in BPstat, on issues of debt securities and shares for May 2019.

In May 2019 net issues (gross issues minus redemptions) of securities by resident entities totalled about -€0.1 billion. This figure results mainly from negative net issues by financial corporations, partly offset by positive net issues by the general government (Charts 1 and 2).

The outstanding amount of securities issued by residents totalled €469.1 billion, €1.7 billion less than in April (Chart 3). This reduction was chiefly due to the devaluation of listed shares issued by non-financial corporations, partly offset by the valuation of general government debt securities (Chart 4).
