The three series were priced competitively at 2.38 per cent for US$460 million for a one-month tenor, 2.90 per cent for US$220 million for a three-month tenor and 3.52 per cent for US$350 million for a six-month tenor.

“The auction garnered significant interest among Islamic primary dealers and investors across the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) markets as well as Asia.

“The competitive tender witnessed a strong order book in excess of US$2.09 billion, representing an average bid-to-cover ratio of 203 per cent,” it said in a statement today.

Further to today’s reissuance, the IILM has achieved year-to-date cumulative issuances totalling US$9.09 billion through 22 sukuk series.

The IILM said it would continue to reissue its short-term liquidity instruments monthly as scheduled in its issuance calendar.
