Azerbaijani company raises funds from outside the country by issuing bonds, a first from this country.

Azerbaijani cotton-processing company MKT Istehsalat-Kommersiya has sold a $5 million two-year bond, paying a fixed interest rate of 14.4% – the first example of an Azerbaijani company raising funds overseas this way.
