Qatar’s Ezdan Holding said on Tuesday it received shareholder approval to raise $2 billion through the issuance of sukuk.


A real estate developer founded by members of the ruling al-Thani family, Ezdan could issue in dollars or in other currencies and the offering could be through one or a series of Islamic bonds, it said in a bourse filing.


The developer did not elaborate on the tenure or timeframe of the sukuk issue.


In October, it was announced the firm had raised $500 million through a sharia-compliant loan of five years duration.
