Dubai CDS jump to highest since March; Nakheel debt falls
February 16, 2010 5:23 AM EST
The cost of insuring five-year Dubai debt against default jumped to its highest level since March on Monday as concerns intensified over the debt restructuring of state-owned conglomerate Dubai World.
Nervousness over the fate of Dubai World debt grew after Dow Jones reported it is mulling a two-part deal, including one that may repay lenders 60 percent over seven years. Dubai denied the report on Sunday.
Investors, already spooked by a lack of information on the company's plans to repay the debt, reacted with dismay to the reported proposal.
The five-year CDS rose as high as 651 basis points, above the high reached after the Dubai government announced a standstill on debt held by Dubai World in November.
Dubai World [DBWLD.UL] is in talks with banks on the debt delay -- about $22 billion linked to its main propery units Nakheel and Limitless World -- but has yet to present a formal proposal.
It staved off default on a $4.1 billion Islamic bond linked to Nakheel, after a last minute bailout from Abu Dhabi in December.
