KUALA LUMPUR: Petronas Dagangan Bhd has issued RM300mil Islamic medium term notes under its proposed RM2bil Sukuk programme.

It said on Friday the tenure of the issue was 367 days from the date of issuance. The profit rate was 3.53% per annum payable semi-annually.

"The proceeds to be raised from the first issuance will be utilised by the issuer to finance its working capital requirements which are Shariah-compliant," it said.

Petronas Dagangan said upon the first issuance, its consolidated gearing would increase from 0.12 times to 0.18 times on a proforma basis, based on its audited consolidated statement of financial position as at Dec 31, 2013.
