Saudi Electricity raises $1.2bn from sukuk

Riyadh, February 2, 2014

Saudi Electricity Company said on Sunday it raised 4.5 billion riyals ($1.2 billion) from the sale of an Islamic bond.

The sukuk was priced at 70 basis points over the 3-month Saudi interbank offered rate (Saibor), the Gulf's largest utility firm said in a statement.

SEC said at the beginning of January that it had chosen banks to arrange the riyal-denominated transaction. It had been planning to meet investors until February 27 but completed the deal earlier. It did not give a reason why in Sunday's statement.  - Reuters
