The first is for an amount of up to $300,000 million of face value maturing on November 23 of this year, which is equivalent to a term of 176 days and full amortization at maturity. And the second is for $250,000 million, with a maturity date of June 18, 2025 (2 years and 18 days term). In this way, it expands its offer of instruments tied to inflation.

Both will operate under Capital adjustment methodologywhich establishes that the capital balance of the bill will be adjusted according to the Reference Stabilization Coefficient (CER) informed by the Central Bank of the Argentine Republic (BCRA), corresponding to the period elapsed between the 10 business days prior to the date of issuance and the ten (10) business days prior to the expiration date of the interest service or corresponding capital amortization.
