Emirates National Oil Company honored with deal of the year, best syndicated loan awards
The ENOC won Deal of the Year award for its nine-year, $1.5 billion dual currency syndicated debt transaction completed last year. The deal involved two tranches, or currency, which were conventional and Islamic. Numerous financial establishments, including Dubai Islamic Bank, Abu Dhabi Islamic Bank, Noor Bank, Mashreq Bank, Emirates NBD, Commercial Bank of Dubai and Standard Chartered, were involved in underwriting the deal.
