The article presents information on the developments related to private placement securities market. Traditional private-placement volume fell 17.2% in 2004. Traditional private placements — meaning privately placed senior notes — tallied $38.1 billion in 2004, down from $46.1 billion in 2003, according to Thomson Financial. Agents said a slowdown in cross-border privates could have contributed to the dip, as could fewer outsized deals. The bank and bond markets may have also offered heated competition for financing as low interest rates stayed surprisingly low.
