General information about switch operations

Switch operations make it possible for market participants to exchange a significant amount of off-the-run issues to on-the-run issues at market price.

Switch operations via MTS PAF will be conducted just as regular auctions of government securities with uniform pricing. Investors can submit bids through the primary dealers. Bids are contingent on simultaneous sale of the buy-back issues at the pre-announced price and hedge ratio an-nounced at 10.20 CET on the day of the switch operation via Danmarks Nationalbank's webpage (link).

Deadline for submission of bids is 10.30 CET. Cut-off price and allotted quantity will be determined and announced as soon as possible hereafter. Results of the switch operation are published on Danmarks National-bank's webpage, cf. link above.
