Bahri Secures $133m Funding for Five Ships
National Shipping Company of Saudi Arabia (Bahri) said on Sunday that a subsidiary had secured $133.2 million in Islamic financing to purchase five chemical tankers.
The funding will be provided to National Chemical Carriers by Arab Petroleum Investments Corporation and BNP Paribas in the form of a murabaha facility for a 10-year period, it said in a bourse statement.
A murabaha is a cost-plus-profit arrangement which complies with Islamic finance standards.
