Emirates Global Aluminium (EGA) said on Thursday it had secured a $6.5 billion loan from a group of international and regional banks to refinance part of its debt.
EGA, the product of a merger between two state-owned aluminium companies - Dubai Aluminium (Dubal) and Abu Dhabi’s Emirates Aluminium in 2013 - is jointly owned by Abu Dhabi investment fund Mubadala and state company Investment Corporation of Dubai.
EGA’s debt includes a $4.9 billion, seven-year loan agreed with banks in December 2015.
