Abu Dhabi National Energy Company (TAQA) has issued a 10-year $750m bond.

The proceeds of the offering will be used to repay part of the $1.2bn of bonds scheduled to mature in September 2014.

The bond, priced at 3.875%, was part of a refinancing programme executed by TAQA, which also included the issuance of a $200m five-year term loan to the Japanese Samurai market and a €180m ($138m) 10-year private placement note.

In March TAQA announced a net loss of $680.6m (AED 2.5bn) for 2013 as a result of a one-off, non-cash impairment related to the value of the company’s North American oil and gas assets.
