2010 Outlook for Gulf M&A Financing
On February 7, IFR hosted a roundtable discussion at the Dubai Capital Club with participants from Arabtec Holding, Morgan Stanley, Riyad Capital and Standard Chartered Bank. The subject was the outlook for M&A and capital markets in the MENA region, in the wake of the global financial crisis and in light of some well publicised regional difficulties. The bank representatives came from the firms heading the Thomson Reuters M&A, equity capital markets and syndicated lending league tables, respectively, in the MENA region for 2009.
Hosted by IFR’s Editor-in-Chief Keith Mullin, participants at the roundtable were Ziad Makhzoumi, Chief Financial Officer, Arabtec Holding PJSC; Peter Fort, Executive Director, M&A, MENA, Morgan Stanley; Ali A Al-Gwaiz, CEO, Riyad Capital; and Steve Perry, Head of Project Finance Syndications, MENA, Standard Chartered Bank.
