Equity Capital Markets

Our track record shows that we support our clients in their periodic need of capital through rights offering, subsequent new offerings and other means of capital provision and enhancement. We have been instrumental in arranging capital for start-up ventures, as well as growth and acquisition financing in the MENA region.

 

Initial Public Offerings (IPO)

We handle the management and co-management of IPOs along with other regional and international investment banks. In markets, where conventional IPOs are not prevalent, we assist business entities in raising capital via private placements, while providing them with advice and assistance to prepare and qualify for listing on stock exchanges. Our team has worked on IPO’s in different regional and international markets such as Boursa Kuwait, Dubai Financial Market, Nasdaq Dubai, London Stock Exchange and Cairo Stock Exchange.

 

Private Placements

Raising capital for business entities. Key activities include validation of business plans and capital requirements, development of simple, efficient and practical transaction structure, provision of support for the entity in regulatory compliance and obtaining approvals, preparation of statutory and marketing documents, solicitation to strategic and non-strategic institutional and non-institutional investors in addition to allocation and other closing procedures.

 

Rights Issues

Raising additional capital from existing shareholders through rights issues which are typically structured to accommodate new investors for portions not subscribed to by the existing shareholders.
