Abu Dhabi Financial Group, Shuaa Capital agree $12.8 bln merger
Published in Amwal Al Ghad on 26 - 06 - 2019

Abu Dhabi Financial Group (ADFG) and Shuaa Capital on Wednesday have agreed on the terms of their merger. The merger will create an entity with $12.8 billion in assets under management.
The agreement will see Shuaa issuing 1.47 billion new shares to ADFG's parent company, Abu Dhabi Capital Management, in return for the entire issued shares of ADFG, the companies said in a joint statement on Wednesday.
ADFG's shareholders will own 58 percent of the enlarged entity while Shuaa's existing shareholders will own 42 percent.
ADFG already owned 48.36 percent of Dubai-listed Shuaa, according to Refinitiv data.
Shares in Shuaa jumped 5 percent to 0.095 dirham 0740 GMT, becoming the top gainer on Dubai's index.
The valuation implies a 60 percent premium to Shuaa's share price.
The combined entity will remain listed on the Dubai stock exchange and will be rebranded as "ADFG."
The deal is expected to be completed in the third quarter of this year.
"This combination will enable us to leverage ADFG's pioneering products and services across a far broader distribution platform, bringing significant synergies to the enlarged entity," said Jassim Alseddiqi, chief executive of ADFG.
Total assets of the merged entity were 4.5 billion dirhams ($1.23 billion), with revenues totalling 568 million dirhams and net income of 135 million dirhams ending December 2018, the companies said in a presentation.
The new entity will consider acquisitions in the region to achieve its goal to be a regional leader in asset management and investment banking, Alseddiqi said.
ADFG has interests in real estate, financial services insurance and public markets.
"The merger will infuse some fresh air into the industry and will be a good addition to the market in financial services," said Mohamed Ali Yasin, chief strategy officer, Al Dhabi Capital Ltd, adding it creates a new investment company champion in the region.
J.P. Morgan acted as financial advisor and PwC acted as financial due diligence advisor to ADFG. UBS Investment Bank and Deloitte acted as financial advisor and financial due diligence advisor to Shuaa.
KPMG acted as independent valuer for ADFG and Shuaa.
