Milaha (Qatar Navigation QSC), has secured a ten year $110m (equivalent to QAR400m) ship financing facility with QNB Group

Proceeds from the facility will be utilized by Qatar Shipping to fund the ongoing construction of 19 harbor assistance vessels. The vessels will be deployed in Mesaieed Port on a 20-year, QR1.8bn contract, signed with Qatar Petroleum in 2011.

The financing was arranged by Milaha Capital, another wholly-owned Milaha subsidiary, which provides corporate finance advisory services to the group as part of its mandate.

The financing agreement was signed by Milaha's President & CEO Khalifa bin Ali Al-Hetmi and Mr. Abdulla Mubarak Al Khalifa, General Manager Corporate Banking from QNB Group. Also in attendance were senior executives from Milaha, its subsidiaries and QNB.

Speaking on the occasion, Mr. Al-Hetmi said "This is the second ship financing agreement signed this year as part of a series of financing arrangements the company has been planning for 2012. Debt financing is key to funding our growth plans and we at Milaha recognize this facility with a leading bank like QNB as a token of trust in the company's solid foundations, performance, and strong future prospects. We are very pleased to be able to build on our long-standing and extensive relationship with QNB across a number of our business units."
