Emirates Mulls Sukuk for $4.5 Billion in Planes: Islamic Finance
(Bob Chamberlin / Los Angeles Times / July 2, 2013) Also By Angel Jennings and Abby Sewell August 27, 2013, 7:28 p.m. Compton City Councilman Isaac Galvan belatedly filed mandatory campaign finance forms after state officials threatened to open a formal investigation when he missed several deadlines. The financial statements, which were submitted Thursday, show that Galvan spent $29,000 on his race to become Compton’s first Latino elected official. Galvan also reported that he raised only half as much as he spent. Most of his donations came from people outside of Compton in neighboring southeast communities. According to the documents, Galvan has outstanding debts totaling $15,500, most of which was attributed to printing campaign fliers. The 26-year-old reported that he owes Angel Gonzalez, his former campaign manager, almost $12,000. Galvan hired Gonzalez as his community liaison when he won the election. Gonzalez was subsequently fired by Compton’s city manager after The Times published a story that revealed Gonzalez’s criminal history. In 2002, Gonzalez was convicted of a felony conspiracy charge reduced to a misdemeanor at his sentencing for sending out attack mailers with copies of fake official documents.

Among financing options the company could tap the sukuk or non-Shariah-compliant bond market early next year, he said. Emirates last sold $1 billion of Islamic bonds in March, before speculation that the U.S. Federal Reserve will reduce its bond purchasing program prompted an emerging-market debt selloff and sent yields higher . The state-owned airline is undergoing a period of rapid growth as its home base Dubai recovers from the 2008 global financial crisis.
