Al Arabi Investment Group’s Investment Banking Department is committed to providing its clients with superior advice and execution in a business environment that is changing rapidly at every level.

Through its wealth of international experience and the depth of its local market acumen, AB Invest’s Investment Banking Department offers services geared towards helping local and regional companies face the challenges and reap the rewards of a newly open and fully competitive business paradigm.

With their diverse backgrounds in investment banking, AB Invest’s team members offer a diverse and complementary set of skills to furnish solutions in line with regional economic and political developments.  These attributes, together with the team's disciplined distribution capabilities, have created a high level of comfort and credibility with AB Invest’s clients.

AB Invest’s goal is to offer corporate solutions that meet the specific needs of its clients.  The following Investment Banking Department's products are designed to provide these solutions:

  • Private Placements: AB Invest offers advice on the selection of the most appropriate type of offering structure, investor audience, capital market, valuation, and terms and conditions. AB Invest creates a competitive environment to sell equity securities to blue-chip, institutional and other sophisticated investors who are closely matched to clients' needs.
     
  • Corporate Recapitalizations: The AB Invest team provides advice on the financial reorganization of companies for various purposes, including shareholder liquidity, maximizing shareholder value, renegotiating financial agreements, arranging credit facilities, and other balance sheet restructuring.
     
  • Mergers, Acquisitions and Joint Ventures: AB Invest assists in the formulation of the clients' strategic objectives, and in the identification, analysis and ranking of suitable targets. Furthermore, it develops strategies to achieve the most favorable outcome, coordinates the due diligence process, provides counsel on the optimum transaction structure, and secures financing for the transaction as needed.
     
  • Divestiture Mandates: AB Invest team members develop strategies to maximize value and benefits for the selling shareholders, whether governments or corporations. A controlled, competitive sale process is typically conducted, tailored to the objectives and sensitivities of the client. This process incorporates the identification and qualification of prospective buyers, locally and cross-border.
     
  • Fairness Opinions and Valuations: The AB Invest team renders an independent perspective on the fairness of a transaction and performs the valuation of businesses or securities by applying both traditional and contemporary valuation methods.
     
  • Initial Public Offering: AB Invest’s advisory services in this field build on its Investment Banking team's previous experience in taking companies public. They help their clients prepare and review the prospectus and other presentation material; coordinate legal, accounting, underwriting and management responsibilities; determine an appropriate offering price; as well as revise and monitor issue fees and expenses.
     
  • Bond Offerings: The AB Invest team advises on the structuring and pricing of the offering, with the ultimate goal of expanding market appetite as well as increasing competition among investors to achieve the most favorable borrowing rate for their client. The team drafts the bond offering memorandum and assists in the negotiation of financial covenants, since a clear understanding of which covenants are appropriate to investors and what negotiating nuances can be applied for the benefit of the client are keys to a successful execution. AB Invest carries out the timely implementation of a well-articulated bond placement strategy.
