Kuwait's Boubyan Bank targets $250 million sukuk sale
May 9, 2016, 3:54 pm

Kuwait's Boubyan Bank is aiming to sell $250 million in capital-boosting sukuk after releasing initial pricing thoughts for the issue, a document from lead managers said on Monday.

The deal, structured with a perpetual tenor and with an option for the bank to redeem the paper after the fifth year, is earmarked to price in the very low 7 percent area.

No timeframe for the sale was given in the document. The sukuk will enhance the bank's Tier 1, or core, capital.

The sharia-compliant lender, a subsidiary of National Bank of Kuwait, picked Dubai Islamic Bank, Emirates NBD Capital, HSBC, KFH Capital, National Bank of Kuwait, Standard Chartered and itself to arrange the issue.
