ISTANBUL, Oct 3 (Reuters) - Turkey's Treasury said on Thursday it had borrowed $1.25 billion in a five-year dollar-denominated sukuk issue at a profit rate of 300 basis points over mid-swaps.
The offer was six times oversubscribed, with 27 percent of investors in the Middle East, 19 percent in Turkey, 15 percent in Europe and 11 percent in the United States, the Treasury said in a statement.
This was Turkey's second-ever sovereign sukuk issue in international markets.
