Dubai's largest construction firm, Arabtec, swung to a net loss of 94.4 million dirhams ($25.7 million) in the fourth quarter of last year, missing analysts' estimates as high costs weighed on its bottom line. The builder, in which Abu Dhabi state fund Aabar Investments owns a 36.11 percent stake, on Sunday reported a net profit attributable to shareholders of 214.6 million dirhams for full-year 2014 versus 377.8 million dirhams in 2013. It did not provide quarterly figures in the statement, but Reuters calculations based on its previous financial statements showed the company swung to a fourth-quarter loss from a 122.1 million dirham profit in the prior-year period. Two analysts polled by Reuters had forecast Arabtec would make a quarterly profit of 107.3 million and 122 million dirhams. Last year's profits were hit by non-recurring general and administrative expenses, which jumped 75 percent to 749.9 million dirhams, the company said. More»

Egypt's housing ministry and Dubai's Arabtec have agreed some of the terms for a $40 billion project to build one million homes across the country, and they will sign a final contract within 10 days, a ministry spokeswoman announced on Tuesday. Earlier this month, the housing minister said he hoped to conclude a deal for the mega development - seen as part of economic and political support to the country by the United Arab Emirates - before a March 13-15 investment conference. No announcement was made, however. The two parties differed over the percentage of completed units that Arabtec should deliver to Egypt in lieu of payment for land used in the project, a source told Reuters on March 3. "There is no percentage that has been agreed on with Arabtec," Wafaa Bakri, media advisor for the housing minister, told Reuters on Tuesday. Asked if the government would take the same percentage agreed with Talaat Mostafa for the Egyptian developer's Madinaty housing project, which was 7 percent, she said: "It will be more than that." Arabtec executives will visit Cairo within 10 days to sign the final contract, she added without elaborating. Such a short time frame may indicate the two sides are confident a deal is near, and a source familiar with the matter played down their differences. He said the main obstacles had been overcome and only a few relatively minor issues remained. Under a preliminary plan announced last year, construction of the housing had originally been due to start in the third quarter of 2014, with the first homes to be delivered in early 2017 and the project to be completed before 2020.

He added that the final signing of deal is due to happen within the next few days. More»

Egypt has signed preliminary deals with four Arab real estate developers for four projects worth a total of $12.7 billion, the country's housing minister said on the sidelines of an economic summit on Sunday. The Arab world's most populous country faces a persistent housing shortage, with population growth outstripping new construction of affordable housing units. Moustafa Madbouly said that the housing ministry had signed MOUs with Egypt's Mountain View and Saudi Arabia's Sisban Holdings for two real estate projects, with Egypt's second-largest listed developer Palm Hills (PHDC.CA) for a third project, and with a consortium of Arab firms for a fourth. It was not immediately clear how much of the projects would be for residential or commercial properties. Mountain View and Sisban will develop 500 acres (202 hectares) in New Cairo at a cost of $3 billion, and 470 acres in 6th of October City at a cost of $2.7 billion, he said. Final agreements on these projects are expected to be signed within three months, Madbouly said. He added that Palm Hills signed an MOU to develop 500 acres in New Cairo at a cost of $3 billion. A consortium of Arab firms will develop a tourist town on 557 acres in 6th of October City on the outskirts of Cairo for $4 billion, the housing minister said. "6th of October will become the new tourist capital of Greater Cairo," Madbouly said. More»
