Dewa sets Islamic bond price guidance
Dubai, May 26, 2008
Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (Dewa) has set initial price guidance for its Islamic bond at between 100 basis points to 125 basis points over six-month Emirates Interbank Offered Rate, two bankers said.
The state-owned utility is returning to the market after postponing the sale of dollar-denominated bonds in November.
The bankers, who attended a Dewa roadshow, declined to be identified. The utility's latest sale is priced in dirhams. The five-year sale of the floating rate Islamic bonds (sukuk), is managed by Barclays Capital, Citigroup, Dubai Islamic Bank and Emirates Bank International.-Reuters
