As an alternative to an IPO, companies can raise capital by issuing a conventional bond or a Sukuk (Shari'a-compliant bond). The issuer must pay back the capital at an agreed date and in the meantime, depending on the terms, also make other regular payments.
Issuing Sukuk/bonds is a good option for companies that want to raise capital without giving up control or decision making to investors. The profit/interest rates and repayment terms are set, removing any uncertainty about how the bonds will be redeemed at maturity.
A debt issuance and listing will help increase the visibility and credibility of the issuers, especially new issuers who do not have any experience of the capital markets.
There are many advantages to raising funds through the issuance of bonds and Sukuk.
