First Abu Dhabi Bank (FAB) and Mashreqbank, have begun syndicating the deal to other lenders.

Telecom Egypt has secured a $500 million syndicated loan for capital and operating expenditure, reported Reuters.

The loan which is the latest among a number of debt facilities raised by Egyptian borrowers over the past few months, suggest improved business conditions in the country under a $12 billion three-year IMF loan programme.
