Emirates Post IPO

The Emirates Post IPO was planned for April 2007, then reported to be June/July 2007, then reported to be in the fourth quarter of 2007. Emirates Post is also reportedly going to list on both DFM and ADSM which would make it the first company to have a dual listing on both UAE markets.

Previous information indicated it would be 40% of the total share capital. If size of IPO share offered was AED 3 billion or AED 3.67 billion (both figures heard in March 2007), then total possible share capital would be between AED 7.5 billion and AED 9.2 billion. The 40% figure is old though, and may not be correct. Most IPOs in the UAE have floated 55% of total share capital but occasionally less (eg 20% for the Dubai Financial Market IPO at the end of 2006).

The largest IPO in the UAE up to May 2007 was the Deyaar Development IPO at AED 3.2 billion, which trumped the Air Arabia IPO at AED 2.67 billion in March 2007. The Emirates Post IPO may make it to first place.

This page will be updated as further information comes to hand and / or when the Empost IPO Prospectus is issued. Interested investors who do not have an investor card for ADSM or DFM could get that organised in preparation. See first step below.

In the meantime, the Emirates Post IPO discussion and Emirates Post IPO forum will have updated information and news.

If you want to sign up for the Emirates Post IPO, you need to do a couple of things.

1. Go to the ADSM (Abu Dhabi Securities Market) and DFM (Dubai Financial Market) to obtain investor number for each of the markets (this information will be updated as soon as it is known which market on which the EmiratesPost IPO is going to list but you can sign up to both markets in the meantime. It is assumed that EmPost will not be listing on DIFX). You can either do this directly, or some of the ADSM and DFM brokers will do this for you. See the new investors page for the sign up procedure, and the UAE stockmarket subscription forms page for the paperwork. See the brokers page for a list of brokers, or the broker discussion list for opinions and comments.

2. Go to one of the receiving banks (unknown which ones as yet; as soon as the IPO is officially announced, the list of receiving banks should be available and will be added here) to collect the Emirates Post IPO subscription forms. Fill them in as per instructions and hand them back to the receiving bank along with money and any other required paperwork needed. Then wait.

Information from the Emirates Post IPO prospectus with list of receiving banks and other details will be below when available. To discuss and read comments about the Empost IPO, visit the Emirates Post IPO discussion or see the Emirates Post IPO forum on DubaiShareTalk.
