Taqa picks banks for potential bond sale

Abu Dhabi, November 29, 2012

 

Abu Dhabi National Energy Co (Taqa), the state-owned firm which is buying a number of BP's North Sea assets, has hired five banks to arrange investor meetings ahead of a potential benchmark-size bond sale, lead arrangers said.
 
Taqa, in which the Abu Dhabi government owns a majority stake, picked BNP Paribas, Citigroup, HSBC Holdings, National Bank of Abu Dhabi and Standard Chartered to arrange investor meetings in Asia, London, and the United States.
 
A potential benchmark-size dollar-denominated bond may follow after investor meetings, a document from lead arrangers said on Thursday.
 
Benchmark-size offerings are typically at least $500 million in size. On Wednesday, Taqa said it was buying some of BP's North Sea assets for over $1.3 billion.  - Reuters
