Arcapita secures sharia-compliant bankruptcy loan

Arcapita Bank received the approval of the court for a $125 million bankruptcy loan. The loan will be provided by Fortress Investment Group (FIG.N) and is said to be the first such loan in consistency with the sharia principles. It will enable the funding of the company in its efforts to restructure debt after filing for bankruptcy in March. Though the loan was initially set at $100 million, the committee succeeded in pushing to raise it. The approval was given by Judge Sean Lane in U.S. Bankruptcy Court in White Plains, New York.
