Kuwait's Boubyan Bank aims to issue sukuk worth $250 million before the end of April, the lender's chief executive said on Monday.
Adel Abdul Wahab al-Majed told reporters of the plan after the company's annual meeting.
Boubyan Bank in January said it had received regulatory approval to issue a capital-boosting sukuk worth $250 million.
Majed added that the sukuk would allow the bank to fulfill Basel III requirements and cover its capital needs until 2018.
