The many bond buy-backs and exchange offers currently being offered were approaching completion yesterday, with Lafarge, the French cement producer, completing its offer to extend its debt maturity.  Lafarge swapped Euros 560m of its 2008 bonds for Euros 612m of a new 2014 issue. BNP Paribas and HSBC managed the exchange offer.
