ABIDJAN, May 3 (Reuters) - Ivory Coast has selected five international banks to manage a Eurobond issue planned for some time in the second quarter of this year, two banking sources familiar with the deal said on Wednesday.
The sources did not name the banks involved and it was not initially clear what amount Ivory Coast, the world's top cocoa producer, was targeting for the deal. It last went to international markets in February 2015 with a $1 billion bond that matures in March 2028. (Reporting by Joe Bavier and Sudip Roy; Editing by Matthew Mpoke Bigg)
