Arab Today, arab today Dubai’s Al Habtoor seeks to raise $1.6 bln in 2013 IPO

Dubai - Agencies

Al Habtoor Group, a family-owned Dubai conglomerate, is looking to raise as much as $1.6 billion in an initial public offering on the Nasdaq Dubai bourse next year, it said on Sunday. In an exclusive interview with Al Arabiya, Khalaf al-Habtoor, chairman of the group, predicted that the group will reach 850 million dirhams ($231 million) in profit this year. The company, whose portfolio spans hospitality, construction, education and automotives, plans to issue new shares worth 25 percent of its capital as part of the listing. It has hired Grant Thornton as financial adviser for the planned IPO, al-Habtoor said. The Dubai-based company is one of the UAE’s biggest family businesses and a potential stock market float from the group is seen as a boost to local equity markets which has struggled to attract new companies post the global financial crisis. Al Habtoor, which also has a 27.5 percent stake in a joint-venture construction firm with Australia\'s Leighton Group, said they would issue 25 percent additional shares that would help raise between 5 billion to 6 billion dirhams ($1.6 billion). Its venture with Leighton will not be part of the IPO as the company is a minority shareholder in the partnership. Al Habtoor is also considering simultaneously listing in London and Saudi Arabia, the chairman said. The family firm plans to use proceeds from the listing to expand its businesses and acquire other properties globally. Earlier this year, Al Habtoor unveiled plans to develop a new $1.3 billion hotel and entertainment complex in Dubai, despite a property collapse that has seen prices plunge from a 2008 peak. The group expects revenues to rise 15 percent this year in the wake of 10 percent growth between 2010 and 2011.
