Dubai-based port and terminal operator DP World’s Group Chairman and CEO, Sultan Ahmed Bin Sulayem, rang the market-opening bell today to celebrate the listing of a USD 1.2 billion sukuk on Nasdaq Dubai.

“As the international financial exchange serving the Middle East, Nasdaq Dubai is an excellent listing venue to support the global visibility of our sukuk,” Bin Sulayem said.

“Our issuance received strong investor demand from around the world, including the US and Europe as well as our own region,” he added.

DP World’s Sukuk listed on Nasdaq Dubai on June 1, 2016. It is the company’s fourth debt listing on the exchange.

At the end of May, DP World raised the amount in a new 7-year sukuk. The issue received strong investor interest and was 2x oversubscribed receiving more than USD 2 billion in bids, DP World earlier said.

The new sukuk issue followed DP World’s refinancing of over USD 1.1 billion of the existing USD 1.5 billion 2017 sukuk.

The remaining USD 387 million 2017 sukuk matures next year. The money raised from the new sukuk sale will fund the tender offer along with general corporate purposes.

Ferries Asia Summit

Propelling Regional Waterway Connectivity & Fleet-wide Operational Excellence

Ferry travel is in the limelight. The potential for driving tourism growth is immense – and for archipelago nations battling with urban congestion, ferry services pose a clean, efficient alternative in everyday public transport. But high-profile ferry accidents have brought ever greater attention to safety regulations for Asia’s maritime travel industry.

Amid these circumstances, how can vessel operators cope with ever-tightening safety requirements, while making the right decisions at the right time to capture rising demand? What are the smartest ways to improve service reliability and fleet quality, that maximize operating and capital spend? What are the industry’s best-practices for sustainable growth, and how can they be achieved?

Play your part! Join us at the Ferries Asia Summit 2017 to push forward the regional debate on making Asia’s ferry industry more progressive, safe, and commercially sustainable. Bringing together fast-ferry, RO-RO and ROPAX vessel owners along with international and domestic maritime regulators, classification agencies, shipbuilders and naval architects, this event connects the entire value chain for a meaningful holistic debate on ferry operations excellence in Asia.

WHAT’S ON THE AGENDA THIS YEAR?

Comprehensive debates on addressing the complexity of ferry safety in Asia: Is vessel age truly the greatest concern? How significant are other factors, and how can they be addressed?
