DDF concludes repricing of existing senior unsecured conventional and Islamic financing facilities

Dubai Duty Free (DDF) has successfully concluded the repricing of its $1.75bn debut facility arranged in 2012. The Repricing was well received by the market with support from its existing syndicate of international, regional and local banks, with several institutions also offering to increase their commitments as well as accepting the lower pricing. However, no new commitments needed to be allocated. Citibank, N.A., London Branch acted as sole co-ordinator and bookrunner for the Company in connection with this Transaction. DDF's goal is to increase sales this year to $1.8bn to grow sales to $3bn within five years.
