Dubai - Mubasher: Khaleeji Commercial Bank has successfully issued Sukuk worth $159 million, subject to approvals from regulatory authorities and the extraordinary general meeting (EGM).

Shareholders supported the bank to issue Additional Tier 1 (AT1) Capital Sukuk of up to $200 million in a bid to support the lender’s capital base, according to a bourse filing on Monday.

This move will significantly strengthen the lender’s financial position and empower it to enter into new strategic partnerships and promising projects that will establish a foundation to achieve growth by reducing financing costs, enhancing the capital adequacy, and investing in the development of the bank’s electronic channels and the quality of services provided to customers.
