Goldman Sachs $6.5 billion Bonds Underwriting
This in-principle agreement settles Malaysia’s probe of Goldman Sachs role in raising $6.5 billion through 3 bond sales for 1MDB between 2012 and 2013. The $6.5 billion bond sales was led by Tim Leissner, who was Goldman Sachs Southeast Asia Chairman. The leading American investment bank received $600 million in fees, representing more than 9% of the transaction. The more than 9% underwriting fee of the $6.5 billion bond sales paid to Goldman Sachs is unusually high in investment banking, with fees generally decreasing as the deal size gets larger.
With the settlement of $3.9 billion by Goldmans Sachs, $4.5 billion had been recovered to the Government of Malaysia. In 2019, Goldman Sachs had offered $1.75 billion to the Government of Malaysia as settlement.
Founded in 2009 shortly after Najib Razak became Malaysia’s Prime Minister, 1MDB (1Malaysia Development Bhd) was set up as a sovereign investment fund to finance infrastructure projects and related economic projects to spur economic growth in Malaysia.
It became a political and financial scandal as the key businessman Jho Low who is believed to have masterminded the plan, had diverted the 1MDB funds to fund his personal and associates’ lifestyle, including making the Hollywood movie: Wolf of Wall Street, buying a $250 million yacht (Equanimity) and $35 million Bombardier private jet, giving lavish gifts to Victoria secret model Miranda Kerr and Hilton hotel heiress Paris Hilton, investing in luxury real estates, paintings and many more.
Tengku Dato’ Sri Zafrul Aziz, the Minister of Finance:
“This settlement represents assets that rightfully belong to the Malaysian people. We are confident that we are securing more money from Goldman Sachs compared to previous attempts, which were far below expectations.
We are also glad to be able to resolve this outside the court system, which would have cost a lot of time, money and resources. With this settlement, we will have the return of the monies expedited, and not held up by lengthy and costly court battles and legal process.”
