“Adopting new concessions and eliminating unstable investments is a starting point for the real estate sector. In cooperation with Russia and China, we have presented the Kandil government with a project worth $9 billion dollars and foiled attempts of Muslim Brotherhood encroachment. Some 97 per cent of our investments are self-funded and we are looking forward to the opening of Kempinski Royal Maxim Palace in March 2014” Mohamed Karar, President of Maxim Holding Group for Real Estate and Tourism Investment said the Egyptian economy is going through a critical period. The effects of political and security instability Egypt has been experiencing over the past two and half years have affected most industries and resource allocation. These impacts would not last for long, he added, since the government is keen on implementing the roadmap it has set on finalizing the restructuring of state institutions, legislative councils and the upcoming elections and constitution.

Moody's Investors Service has today upgraded the corporate family rating (CFR) and probability of default rating (PDR) of Aldar Properties PJSC (Aldar, or 'the company') by three notches to Ba1 and Ba1-PD from B1 and B1-PD respectively. Concurrently, Moody's has upgraded the $1.25 billion of bonds due 2014 issued by Atlantic Finance Limited and unconditionally guaranteed by Aldar by three notches, to Ba2 from B2. The outlook on all ratings is positive. This concludes the ratings review initiated on January 22, 2013 following the announcement that Aldar and Sorouh Properties PJSC would merge. Moody's subsequently maintained the review after upgrading the CFR to B1 on July 1, 2013. "We have upgraded Aldar's ratings by three notches as a result of the company completing its merger with Sorouh. The merger was transformational in nature as it added material recurring rental income from residential properties and created the leading Abu Dhabi real estate player with a large land bank and a sizable investment property portfolio. There is increased visibility regarding the combined entity's transactions with the government of Abu Dhabi, as well as in terms of its project pipeline and cash flow projections," said Martin Kohlhase, Moody's Senior Analyst and local market analyst for Aldar. "Aldar has a significantly improved risk profile as a result of increased visibility. Contracted transactions between the Abu Dhabi government and the company are planned to run until 2017, amounting to around AED9.1 billion, or $2.5 billion." More»
