The IILM Issues a total of USD 600 million Ṣukūk

Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia – 12 May 2020 - Today, the International Islamic Liquidity Management Corporation (IILM) has successfully conducted its auction by issuing two short-term A-1 rated Ṣukūk for a total amount of USD 600 million.

The auction garnered an order book of more than USD 1.17 billion, bringing the average bid-to-cover ratio of the two tranches to 195%. With over 40 orders from diversified investors, the allocations across all tenors are well spread across regions from Asia to GCC and Europe.

The USD 300 million 1-month Ṣukūk offer a profit rate of 0.33%, while the USD 300 million 3-month offer 0.50%, falling at the low end and below the low end of the initial pricing guidance for the 1-month series and the 3-month series, respectively. 

Despite the headwinds linked to the coronavirus outbreak, the oil price slump and lack of visibility in the months ahead, the IILM remains committed to offering multiple short-term investment tools to provide high quality Sharīʿah-compliant paper to the market.

The IILM short-term Sukūk programme is rated “A-1” by S&P. The total of IILM Ṣukūk outstanding is USD 2.51 billion with a Shari’ah tradability ratio of 71% tangible assets.
