(MENAFN) Oman Investment Fund has issued the syndication of USD600mn of conventional and Islamic facilities for its owned subsidiary United Telecom Limited.
Furthermore, the facilities raised by UTL have a 5.25 year tenor, split between a conventional facility of USD450mn and an Islamic facility of USD150mn.
The financing was offered to UTL on a sole basis by Citi as basic Underwriter to meet the timeline to close and fund the acquisition of the 51 percent share in Omantel.
