The transaction is DIB’s second foray into the international capital markets in 2019, the first being a $750mn Additional Tier 1 Sukuk priced earlier this year.

The roadshow resulted in significant demand from Middle astern, Asian and European investors, with an orderbook that closed in excess of USD 2bn, representing an oversubscription rate of 2.7 times.

Dr. Adnan Chilwan, the Group Chief Executive Officer of the bank, commented «The success of DIB’s Sukuk is a testament to the confidence investors place in the bank’s robust fundamentals, as well as their comfort in the broader Dubai and UAE story. We are extremely pleased with the outcome of this transaction and remain committed to our local and global investors who continue to support our diversified funding strategy».

The Sukuk was issued as a drawdown under DIB’s USD 7.5 billion Trust Certificate Issuance Programme which is listed on Euronext Dublin and NASDAQ Dubai.

Bank ABC, Dubai Islamic Bank, Emirates NBD Capital, First Abu Dhabi Bank, HSBC, Maybank, Sharjah Islamic Bank, Standard Chartered Bank and Warba Bank acted as Joint Lead Managers and Bookrunners on this transaction.
