Ezdan opted for an international placement of the transaction and Mashreq joined Barwa Bank as bookrunner. Speaki on behalf of Mashreq Bank, Dubai, Azeem ur Rahim, Head of International Corporate Banking, said, "We take pride in being partner of choice, and join Barwa Bank to deliver the first ever syndicated transaction for Ezdan.

Qatar First Bank was Co-Arranger, Industrial and Commercial Bank of China Doha (QFC) Branch and Sharjah Islamic Bank were lead participants on the transaction.



The proceeds will be used to support the completion of key commercial and residential real estate developments in Qatar.
