Dubai, U.A.E., 5 April 2022 – Dubai Aerospace Enterprise (DAE) Ltd today announced that it had successfully closed a new 4-year US$1 billion Revolving Credit Facility with a 1-year extension option. The Facility replaces other facilities with near-term maturity dates and represents DAE’s first facility that is priced with reference to SOFR. The Facility attracted the appetite from a broad group of banks and was oversubscribed.
Al Ahli Bank of Kuwait K.S.C.P – DIFC Branch (“ABK”), Emirates NBD Capital Limited (“EMCAP”) and First Abu Dhabi Bank PJSC (“FAB”) served as the Mandated Lead Arrangers and Bookrunners. EMCAP also acts as a Facility Agent for the banking syndicate.
