"Investment deals are getting more difficult in light of market conditions," said a banker away from the deal. “Even the Coca-Cola bond deal has run into difficulties,” he added, referring to Coca-Cola Easygic, the Turkish soft drink bottling company that sold $500 million in sustainability-related bonds on Thursday, according to IFR news service.
