Binghatti Holding set to launch debut US dollar sukuk

DUBAI, February 20, 2024

Binghatti, a leading Emirati property development company headquartered in Dubai, is preparing to launch its inaugural US dollar sukuk in the coming days, subject to market condition. This will highlight the company's strategic move towards diversifying its funding base.
Emirates NBD, Dubai Islamic Bank, Abu Dhabi Islamic Bank, HSBC, Mashreq, Sharjah Islamic Bank, and RAKBANK have been appointed as Joint Lead Managers and bookrunners on the contemplated inaugural debt capital markets transaction.
The debut US dollar sukuk issuance, anticipated to be of benchmark size, is intended to have a three-year maturity. This initiative further solidifies the company's commitment to exploring innovative avenues for capital raising while adhering to the principles of Sharia-compliant finance.
Non-deal roadshow
Binghatti Holding recently concluded a successful non-deal roadshow, engaging with fixed income investors in Hong Kong and London. Additionally, Fitch Ratings recently assigned Binghatti Holding a B+ credit rating with a positive outlook.
Binghatti’s project offering in the uber-luxury segment features branded developments in collaboration with global luxury brands including Bugatti, Mercedes-Benz, and Jacob & Co. All three branded developments mark the first ever debut in the real-estate industry for these global brands. Binghatt’s branded uber-luxury developments are valued at a total project value of circa AED16 billion ($4.36 billion). 
In addition to the uber-luxury project offering, Binghatti’s developments in the mainstream and luxury segments amount to an additional value of circa AED7.6 billion, bringing the total value of its diverse project portfolio to a figure exceeding circa AED23.6 billion.
