ADQ, IHC Capital propose merger with Q Holding

Q Holding, set up in 2005, has assets across sectors such as property, services and hospitality, and has diversified investments through its subsidiaries.

In August 2023, Abu Dhabi’s ADQ and IHC Capital Holding submitted an offer to Q Holding to combine ADQ’s 100 per cent shareholding of Abu Dhabi National Exhibitions Company (ADNEC), as well as its majority ownership interest in Modon Properties (Modon), and IHC Capital’s entire interest in Modon into Q Holding.

The transaction would create one of the largest real estate, hospitality, events, and catering platforms in the region that would enhance Abu Dhabi’s position as an integrated real estate and hospitality leader. Following the completion of the deal, ADQ and IHC Capital would respectively own 38.7 per cent and 19.4 per cent of the entire issued share capital of Q Holding.
