UAE’s First REIT To Announce IPO On Nasdaq Dubai

Emirates REIT, which was formed in 2010, has eight properties valued at over Dhs1.1 billion.

The United Arab Emirates’ first real estate investment trust will announce later on Tuesday an initial public offer of its shares on the Nasdaq Dubai bourse, a source aware of the matter said.

Emirates REIT, which was formed in 2010 and complies with Islamic investment principles, has eight properties valued at over Dhs1.1 billion ($300 million), according to recent statements by the trust. REITs directly invest in properties and distribute profits as dividends.

Dubai Islamic Bank (DIB) owns 35.3 per cent of the company, while state-owned conglomerate Dubai Holding owns 31 per cent through two of its units, according to its website.

Reuters first reported the plan for the IPO last September.
