Dubai: United Arab Emirates’ health care provider NMC Health has raised a $2 billion (Dh7.34 billion) loan which will be used for general corporate purposes and partly to refinance existing debt, sources familiar with the matter said. The fund-raising, completed earlier this month, was provided by a consortium of banks including Citi, JPMorgan and Standard Chartered, the sources said. London-listed NMC said earlier this month that it planned acquisitions worth up to $800 million this year, as it looks for growth opportunities in Dubai, Oman and Saudi Arabia. Last year, NMC spent $641 million in acquisitions.
