Emaar Properties Gets Shareholder Nod For Dhs9bn Special Dividend

EMG listed 15.4 per cent on the Dubai Financial Market, raising $1.58 billion from the sale, which was well covered by investor bids.

Shareholders in Emaar Properties , Dubai’s largest listed developer, approved on Monday a special cash dividend totalling Dhs9 billion ($2.45 billion), it said in a statement.

The dividend, which was approved at the firm’s ordinary general meeting, was related to the flotation earlier this year of a stake in Emaar Malls Group (EMG), a unit of Emaar Properties.

EMG listed 15.4 per cent on the Dubai Financial Market, raising $1.58 billion from the sale, which was well covered by investor bids.

Emaar had proposed distributing Dhs5.3 billion of proceeds from the initial public offering to shareholders, as well as Dhs3.7 billion dirhams of dividends paid by EMG to Emaar prior to the listing.

The dividend is equivalent to Dhs1.27 per share, Emaar said previously.
