BlueMount Capital in the news: “Bangladesh: Could corporate Sukuk take off?” IFN 17th March 2021

“Bangladesh turns 50 this month, and in a fitting celebration, March 2021 also saw the country’s first corporate Sukuk announced: a US$250 million issuance from Deshbandhu Group (DGL) expected to mature in 2028. Following on from the government’s first debut sovereign Sukuk back in December 2020, the move is an encouraging one as the economy gathers steam. But with significant barriers remaining to a conducive issuing environment, can Bangladesh maintain its momentum? LAUREN MCAUGHTRY speaks to the lead arranger of the deal to learn more.

DGL, a household name in Bangladesh for its food, sugar and drinks products, is seeking to raise US$250 million from international investors in order to expand its business and repay existing debts. The firm chose the Sukuk route as a means of achieving a lower cost of capital than expensive bank loans, with the deal arranged by London based Bedford Row Capital (BRC) and Australian investment firm BlueMount Capital. “We are excited about what this transaction symbolizes for Sukuk issuance,” said Dr Scott Levy, CEO of BRC, speaking to IFN. “It’s a clear symbol of where we think the market is going to go in the next year or two, with all sorts of new issuers coming to market.”

The Sukuk will finance the repayment of current outstanding debt and to invest in new technology and scaling up capacity of its group businesses.

DGL has grown into one of the largest and most successful Conglomerates of Bangladesh with operations across several sectors and employing approximately 11,000 people. The Group has established and acquired subsidiaries and controlled entities with interests in 16 businesses covering food, fibre and textiles, trading, power, and property.
The foundation of DGL is based on the philosophy “Friend of the Country and its People”. Based in one of the fastest growing economies in the world, DGL takes its role in society profoundly and seriously by offering healthcare, housing for women, schooling for kids and access to hospitals. DGL’s operations are in line with the UN SDGs of Good Health and Well-Being, No Poverty, Decent Work and Economic Growth and Quality Education.

BRC and BlueMount Capital are working with DGL on the preparation of the legal documentation, structures, teasers, draft investment memorandum and comprehensive corporate presentation packs which will be distributed to prospective institutional investors. This will be followed by launching a data room for a bookbuild phase.

Dr Saliba Sassine, Managing Director of BlueMount Capital, said: “We are pleased to be part of the first international Sukuk issuance by a private corporation from Bangladesh, the next Asian Tiger economy and one of the fastest growing economies in the world. We are committed to providing innovative financing solutions for companies wanting to access the Sukuk market.”

Dr Scott Levy, CEO of BRC, said: “we are delighted to be awarded this Sukuk mandate. It is the first corporate Sukuk out of Bangladesh and will be the blueprint for more issuance out of this region.
