12 Islamic Finance Principles Riba Usury or excessive interest Prohibition of Riba and the exclusion of pure debt-based financing Gharar Uncertainty or Gharar is prohibited in financial dealings Full disclosure of information and removal of any uncertainty in a contract Maysir Gambling and other speculation Prohibition of gambling and speculation in business dealings Haram Forbidden or unlawful Investments in or involvement in activities that are forbidden (e.g. alcohol, weaponry, drugs etc.) 12

13 Murabaha Structure Murabaha is the most common tool for bank financing / lending under Islamic finance 1. 1 Based on the drawdown request from the Company, the Banks provide the Agent with funding equal to the facility amount Banks 2. 2 The Agent, on behalf of the Banks, uses the funding to buy commodities through Broker 1 at the Cost Price (equal to the facility amount) Funding + Murabaha Profit (Deferred Payment) 1 Funding 3. 3 The Agent will then sell the commodities to the Company under a Murabaha contract with deferred payment terms (reflecting the coupon payments and repayment) Agent 3 Sale of Commodities The Company Purchaser 4. 4 In order to monetise the commodities, the Company would sell the commodities through Broker 2 at the same Cost Price pre-arranged with Broker 2 2 Sale of Commodities Cost Price Cost Price + Profit (Deferred Payments) 5 Cost Price 4 Sale of Commodities 5. 5 The Company would pay the Deferred Payments to the Agent which includes the Cost Price plus the Profit; this in turn would get distributed to the Banks Broker 1 Broker 2 13

18 EGYPT: OBJECTIVES, STRATEGIES & CHOICES 18

19 Egypt Sukuk Model Objectives To diversify the source of funding To broaden our investor base To raise funds for development & infrastructure projects, social services, and PPP as well. Strategies & choices Egypt follows a Top Down approach, reflecting a serious government commitment to develop sukuk market. Segregate among Sovereign & Corporate sukuk governing rules, due to different dynamics of each type. Promulgated the sukuk law regulating sovereign & corporate process in May

20 Egypt strategies & choices Egypt is targeting both international and domestic markets, however, it concentrates on developing domestic markets infrastructure. Egypt sukuk law is based on all kinds of Shariah contracts and allows all kind of contracts innovation according to Shariah principals. Sovereign sukuk law is based on Asset Based model not asset backed model. Sovereign sukuk can be issued by central government, municipalities and all government entities A sovereign Supreme Asset Valuation Committee is to be established from high officials to evaluate sovereign assets (land, roads, buildings etc.). 20

21 Egypt strategies & choices Sovereign sukuk are mainly issued to create new assets. Egypt preferred to have a Sovereign Central SPV for all domestic sovereign sukuk issuances ensuring a regular sukuk issuance calendar. The sovereign SPV is composed from the domestic market stakeholders such as MOF, CBE..etc. Egypt has a Central Shariah Committee, it is composed of 7-11 members according to standards stated in law. Non Egyptian & well known shariah scholars are allowed to join it. Ijarah or hybrid Ijarah are the most appealing structures for international & local investors, however, a huge demand is emerging for short term sukuk from local banking sector. Sukuk certificates are tax exempted. Sukuk law complies with foreign ownership of lands law and does not conflict with it. 21
