Mobily has no current need for financing

Mobile, the Saudi Kingdom's second largest telecom operator is set on financing for the time being

Saudi Arabia’s Etihad Etisalat (Mobily) does not require any new financing following the signing of a 10 billion riyal ($2.67 billion), sharia-compliant loan in February, a company executive said on Tuesday.

“That was good enough for the time being. If the business required another financing, we will do so,” Khalid al-Kaf, managing director of Mobily, told reporters on the sidelines of a company event.

Mobily, Saudi Arabia’s second-largest telecoms operator by market capitalisation, rolled three existing facilities into a new, four-tranche Islamic loan with tenors of between five and seven years, it said in a statement in February.

The carrier is an affiliate of Etisalat, the former monopoly operator in the United Arab Emirates.
