Listing Sukuk and Bonds

Issuing Sukuk & Bonds

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.

Understanding Sukuk & Bonds

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.
