Sept. 12 (Bloomberg) -- Bangladesh Petroleum Corp. hired Citigroup Inc., HSBC Holdings Plc and Standard Chartered Plc to arrange a $150 million loan, Chairman Muqtadir Ali confirmed today.
“The banks will organize a roadshow in Singapore on Sept. 26 and Sept. 27 to raise the syndicated loan,” Ali said in a phone interview from Dhaka today. The loan is being guaranteed by the central bank and is not underwritten, he said.
The loan is a short-term oil and port financing and has an average life of six months, Ali said. The loan pays a margin of 275 basis points over the London interbank offered rate, he said.
