Dar Al Arkan meets bond investors for non-deal roadshow

Saudi Arabian real estate developer Dar Al Arkan met fixed income investors last week for a non-deal roadshow. The aim of the meeting was to update investors on the company’s business, so no concrete bond issue plan was discussed. The roadshow was held last week in Dubai and arranged by Emirates NBD. Dar Al Arkan issued $500 million (Dh1.8 billion) of sukuk last April with a profit rate of 6.875% per annum. It also has $450 million of sukuk due in June this year, $400 million of sukuk due in 2019 and a further $500 million of sukuk, those issued last year, maturing in 2022.

Dar Al Arkan struggles despite Saudi property boom

Dar Al Arkan shares are down almost 40 per cent in the past six months and the company said this week it would need to sell some assets in order to pay down debt. And all this inspite of the fact that the Saudi property market is booming.
