‘Write off Nakheel bonds’ ACE chief urges consultants

The chief executive of the Association of Consultancy and Engineering (ACE) has warned companies to write off “sukuk” bonds from indebted Dubai developer Nakheel.
Nakheel is finalising a plan to pay creditors 40% in cash up front, and 60% in sukuk bonds, which are redeemable in five years and pay a return of 10% a year.
Nakheel chief executive Chris O’Donnell told conference delegates, many of whom are still owed money, that the developer would reach an agreement on the plan with creditors before the end of the year, after which the sukuk would be issued.
