KUALA LUMPUR (Feb 24): Serba Dinamik Holdings Bhd said today the engineering services provider has entered into the completion stage for the underwriting of a RM1.2 billion Islamic syndicated financing with Malaysian and foreign banks to refinance Serba Dinamik’s existing loans and fund its working capital requirement.
The banks are HSBC Amanah Malaysia Bhd, AmInvestment Bank Bhd, Bank Islam Malaysia Bhd, MIDF Amanah Investment Bank Bhd, Standard Chartered Saadiq Bhd and United Overseas Bank, according to Serba Dinamik’s statement today.
“The five-year syndication was oversubscribed by 67.0%, which enabled the company to increase the facility amount to RM1.2 billion to accommodate part of the oversubscription.
“Throughout this syndication, HSBC Amanah Malaysia is the mandated lead arranger and bookrunner and underwriter for the RM1.2 billion syndicated commodity Murabahah term facility for the company. On top of this, HSBC Amanah Malaysia took the lead in structuring the financing package by pre-funding and fully underwriting the initial RM900 million of this facility prior to being upsized to the final RM1.2 billion,” Serba Dinamik said.
