  6. Oman News Bank Sohar looks to raise $250m syndicated loan (Source: Oman Tribune)  Bank Sohar has mandated Bahrain-based Bank ABC as the sole bookrunner and lead arranger for a $250-million three-year syndicated term loan facility.  Bank Sohar will utilise the amount for general funding purposes, according to a statement from the Bahrain bank.  Ahead of general syndication, Abu Dhabi Commercial Bank, Axis Bank and Commerzbank Aktiengesellschaft made a commitment to join the facility as initial mandated lead arrangers. The general syndication is expected to close by the end of May. 100m-rial dairy project to give Buraimi a fillip (Source: Oman Tribune)  Al BuraImi’s strategy to become a key centre for logistics and the food supply chain will be impelled by Mazoon Dairy Company’s (MDC) 100-million-rial dairy project, which is set to be operational in the coming months.  Governor of Al Buraimi HE Sayyid Ibrahim Al Busaidi told Oman Tribune recently that in three years his governorate would become an important centre for dairy products after MDC’s project becomes operational.  “The dairy industry will require substantial investments in cold storage and since Al Buraimi is close to the border with the UAE, it is also a place where food imported into Oman can be stored before distribution in the country. That will attract additional investment in cold storage and warehouses and make it an important player in the food supply chain,” he said.  The MDC project will begin with 4,000 cows and will have 25,000 cows in 2026 producing 202 million litres of milk. It will reduce the country’s dependence on imported milk from 69 per cent in 2014 to 13 per cent in 2026. Realty sector to stay on course (Source: Oman Tribune)  The real estate market will witness increased activity during the coming period, especially as a number of tourism and real estate projects are being implemented in the Governorate of Muscat and other governorates, according to real estate brokers in the capital.  In the first three months of the year, Governorate of Muscat saw a slight decline in the prices in some areas while the prices in some areas remained constant, while some areas saw increasing demand for land, villas and apartments, according to some brokers. There has been rising demand for shops and office spaces in Al Seeb, Al Qurum, Baushar and Al Azaiba areas, they said. GBCM Morning Briefing 6
  7. Oman News Realty sector to stay on course (Contd) (Source: Oman Tribune)  The coming period will witness many real estate deals as a result of the many projects that are currently under implementation which will encourage and motivate investors to drive the real estate market, the brokers said adding that the current market movement is natural and healthy for the real estate sector.  To offset the price rise in the current period so that property prices are the same as before, there may be a slight increase in property prices, they said. CBO issues bonds worth 150m rials (Source: Oman Tribune)  The Central Bank of Oman (CBO) has announced the release of issue No. 53 of the Government Development Bonds through a competitive auction of 150 million rials for a six-year maturity at a coupon rate of 5.25 per cent per annum.  The bid will be open on May 2 and will be closed on May 8.

  8. MSM - Market Watch Source : Bloomberg, GBCM Research Market Outlook – Lackluster activity to prevail… During the previous trading session, the MSM30 Index ended the day lower by 0.14% at 5,466.61 points amid dull volumes. For the day we expect the market to open flat and expect the trading activity to remain lackluster owing to lack of any positive trigger in the markets. MSM continue to trade closer to its support of 5,470 levels, breaking this would led to negative sentiments. GBCM Morning Briefing 8
  9. UAE News Etisalat reports Q1 results (Source: Argaam)  mirates Telecommunications Group Co. (Etisalat) reported a net profit of AED 2.1 billion for Q1 2017, up 5% (YoY) due to lower depreciation and amortization, lower forex losses, and a decline in royalty charges.  These factors, however, were partially offset by a higher share of losses from associates and higher net finance costs.  Meanwhile, revenues dipped 3 percent YoY to AED 12.5 billion, impacted by unfavorable exchange rate movements, mainly in Egypt.  Etisalat’s aggregate subscriber base reached 159 million, reflecting a net loss of 4.9 million subscribers (a 3 percent YoY decline), attributed to subscriber disconnection following regulatory mandated registration in various markets. DU reports Q1 results (Source: Trade Arabia)  Emirates Integrated Telecommunications Company (du) has posted revenues of Dh3.17 billion ($863 million) during the first quarter (Q1) of the year, compared to Dh3.08 billion of Q1 2016, marking an increase of 2.5%.  Net profit before royalty decreased by 16.7 per cent to Dh851.2 million, compared with Dh1.02 billion during Q1 2016.  The number of mobile subscribers reached 8.35 million during the period, compared to 8.09 million during Q1 2016, an increase of 3.2%.
