    UK retailers slump but Zoopla kicks off high-yield issuance

    New Look, House of Fraser and Debenhams (Frankfurt: D2T.F - news) bonds hit lows on Monday because of financial stress, but the year's first high-yield deal for online property platform Zoopla will test how far concerns around UK consumer names has spread to the market. ZPG, which operates Zoopla, is out with a £200m 5.5-year non-call two senior unsecured note via HSBC and Lloyds and will market the offering in a roadshow running from Tuesday to Thursday. Zoopla's deal was announced against the backdrop of a sell-off in UK high-yield retailers, with New Look's bonds plummeting by up to six points from Friday's close after reports over the weekend that credit insurers have halted the sale of credit insurance on new shipments to its suppliers, while House of Fraser's £175m 2020 FRN lost over nine points on the back of news that it is renegotiating its rents.
