  7. MSM - Market Watch Source : Bloomberg, GBCM Research Market Outlook – Range bound activity to prevail… During the last trading session, he regional markets ended on a mixed note. Oman ended lower by 0.1% for the day with the sell-off seen in stocks across post weak Q1 earnings. We expect the local and the regional markets to open in red on increased equity risk aversion and to see stock specific reactions with the continuing corporate earnings announcements. In Oman, we do anticipate sideways movement to continue along with dull volumes. On the technical perspective, MSM may see support closer to 5,530 levels. GBCM Morning Briefing 7
  8. UAE News Dubai builder Arabtec asks banks to waive debt terms (Source: Reuters)  Arabtec Holding is asking banks to waive terms on its debt, two banking sources with direct knowledge of the matter told Reuters.  The building company has been in talks with its main creditors over the past month to waive the right for banks to call in facilities extended to the business, said the sources, who declined to be identified because the matter had not been made public.  The waiver request comes as Arabtec seeks to ensure that the proceeds of a planned 1.5 billion dirham ($408.4 million) rights issue will go to the company rather than be used to settle its liabilities, one of the sources said, adding that Arabtec will no longer be in breach of debt covenants after the rights issue.  Loss-making Arabtec had said in its 2016 financial statement that it was "in breach of certain debt covenants".  Some of the banks have provisionally agreed to Arabtec's request to waive terms on its debt, the source said. Aldar Properties eyes mid-income market with $354 mln project (Source: Reuters)  Aldar Properties, the largest developer in Abu Dhabi, is betting on the middle income segment with a new project to boost revenues in a depressed real estate market. The move from the state-linked builder of Abu Dhabi's Formula One circuit came as property values and rentals have both fallen due to the economic hit from a sharp drop in oil prices in 2014.  Aldar launched a 1.3 billion dirhams ($354 million) mid-market residential project that will build 1,272 units.  Aldar's chairman Abubaker Seddiq al Khoori said the mid-income population of Abu Dhabi comprises around 40 to 60 percent of the total population with a very low percentage of them owning property. Emaar declares 15% cash dividend  (Source: Arabian Business) Emaar Properties declared a cash dividend of 15%, equivalent to AED1.074 billion ($292 million), for distribution to the company’s shareholders.
