Muscat - Arab Today

Oman has raised $2.5 billion in a bond sale arranged by five international banks to help meet its budget deficit resulting from low oil prices, the Finance Ministry said.
The ministry, quoted by the Oman News Agency, said the sultanate’s first international bond issue in two decades was oversubscribed by almost three times.
Oman sold $1 billion in bonds to mature in five years at an interest rate of 3.625 percent and a 10-year issue worth $1.5 billion at 4.75 percent, it said in a statement.
Oman is projecting a budget deficit of $8.6 billion this year after posting a shortfall of $11.7 billion in 2015. Oman has adopted measures to cut spending and raise revenues that include reducing subsidies on fuel and electricity.
A non-OPEC producer, Oman is pumping around 1 million barrels per day.
Gulf states have been hit hard by a cash crunch due to a 60-percent drop in oil prices in the past two years.
Most of them have introduced austerity measures and turned to the bond market to raise finances.
