DUBAI, Dec 3 (Reuters) - Qatar Islamic Bank QISB.QA said on Thursday it had exposure to a Dubai World Islamic bond maturing in 2017 worth 54 million rials ($14.84 million).
The lender is the first Qatari bank to announce its exposure to the Dubai state-owned conglomerate, which is restructuring debts worth $26 billion.
“The financial impact currently will affect the negative investment fair value reserve,” it said. “QIB will keep observing the situation and its financial consequences which will be disclosed accordingly.”
