Abu Dhabi Islamic Bank PJSC has mandated HSBC and JPMorgan to coordinate the sale of a $750 million perpetual Tier 1 sukuk, Reuters reported, citing three sources familiar with the matter.
Other banks are slated to join the transaction, which still requires final shareholder approval, at a later stage, according to the newswire.
The United Arab Emirates-based bank's investors are expected to vote Aug. 19 on the proposed debt sale, as well as the planned repayment of a $1 billion perpetual sukuk issued in 2012.
In July, the lender's board recommended to increase its issued capital via a rights issue of 1 billion dirhams.
As of Aug. 9, US$1 was equivalent to 3.67 United Arab Emirates dirhams.
