The sukuk settlement will be implemented today, Jan. 26, 2021, the statement added.
The bank issued 6.250 bonds, based on the minimum denomination and total issue size, at $200,000 each. The sukuk were sold at a return of 3.50% per annum from the issue date to Jan. 26, 2027, when the rate of the return will be reset and then every six years.
The sukuk may be redeemed early due to a capital event, tax event or at the option of NCB.
