Dubai's Emaar Properties starts marketing dollar sukuk
DUBAI, Sept 10 (Reuters) - Dubai's largest listed developer, Emaar Properties EMAR.DU, started marketing on Tuesday 10-year U.S. dollar-denominated sukuk, or Islamic bonds, at around 270 basis points over mid-swaps, a document by one of the banks leading the deal showed.
The planned deal, part of a $2 billion debt-raising programme, will be of benchmark size, which generally means upwards of $500 million.
Standard Chartered STAN.L is coordinating the debt sale, which is expected to close later on Tuesday, according to the document.
