DUBAI, March 11 (Reuters) - NMC Health's five-year dollar sukuk due in 2023 plummeted 36.5 cents on the dollar to 24.8 on Wednesday, Refinitiv data showed, after the company said it had identified over $2.7 billion in debt that had not been disclosed to its board.
The yield on the sukuk surged to as high as 59.2% on Wednesday from a close of 24.1% on Tuesday, Refinitiv data showed. NMC has been embroiled in a series of set backs since December when U.S.-based short-seller Muddy Waters questioned its financial statements. Ever since, the company's shares have dropped dramatically, losing more than half of their value.
