Dubai World Plans to Repay USD 4.4 Billion Loan in May 2015

Dubai World plans to make its first big repayment in 2015. Dubai World will repay the USD 4.4 billion loan in May 2015, as scheduled, while other repayments will be paid early.

Dubai World Prepays $284.5 Million to Creditors

Dubai World has prepaid $284.5 million to creditors under its $25 billion debt restructuring plan. The conglomerate obtained money for the prepayment from asset sales. Under the terms of the restructuring deal, cash raised from asset sales above a threshold of $300 million is to be distributed as early repayments to creditors, which include big Western and Gulf banks. The debt problems of Dubai World, which holds financial and corporate assets across the world, symbolized the emirate's 2009 financial crisis. The early repayment is a sign that so far at least, efforts to resolve those problems are working.
