DanaInfra Nasional Bhd is finalising plans to issue a 1.5 billion ringgit ($490.6 million) sukuk tranche by mid-November to finance the Sungai Buloh-Kajang (SBK) mass rapid transit (MRT) line, with one portion to be marketed as retail bond as raised in the federal budget for 2013 announced last week.
