DUBAI Jan 23 Qatar Telecom (Qtel)
plans to issue a 15-year bond of at least $500 million on
Wednesday, arranging banks said.
Early price guidance for the bond maturing 2028 was released
at 250 basis points over 10-year U.S. Treasuries.
RBS, Bank of America Merrill Lynch, JP
Morgan Chase, Citigroup and QNB Capital
are joint lead arrangers and bookrunners for the deal.
The bond issue will be 144a-compliant, meaning it will be
open to institutional investors in the United States.

10-year bond in a substantially oversubscribed sale.
