Malaysia's Maxis issues 840m ringgit in first series of sukuk

[KUALA LUMPUR] Malaysian mobile phone operator Maxis Bhd said on Monday it had issued bonds worth 840 million ringgit (S$300.5 million) in the first series of its Islamic bond programme.

The tenure is for 10 years from the issue date, according to a stock exchange filing.

Maxis, controlled by Malaysia's second richest man Ananda Krishnan, plans to raise as much as 5 billion ringgit from a 30-year unrated sukuk murabaha programme to refinance debt and fund capital requirements.

CIMB, sole principal adviser and lead arranger for the programme, was the sole lead manager for the issue.
