DAR GLOBAL SECURES AED 750 MILLION SECURED TERM LOAN

 

 

Dar Global, the luxury international real estate developer, is pleased to announce that its UAE based wholly owned subsidiary has signed an AED 750 million (equivalent to approximately US$204 million) secured term loan facility (the "Facility") with Emirates NBD.

 

The Facility has a tenure of four years and is priced at a competitive fixed margin over the Emirates Interbank Offered Rate ("EIBOR").

 

The Board of Dar Global envisages using the proceeds from the facility for future asset acquisitions and general corporate purposes (including working capital requirements), as the Group continues to build its international portfolio of luxury second home and leisure developments in desirable locations across Europe and the Middle East.

 

Ziad El Chaar, CEO of Dar Global, commented:

 

"This new facility provides us with additional capital to accelerate our growth in key markets as we look to capitalise on sustained demand for luxury properties from internationally mobile, high net worth investors."

 

 

Ahmed Al Qassim, Group Head of Wholesale Banking, Emirates NBD, added:

 

"We are pleased to structure a facility that perfectly aligns with Dar Global's business ambitions. This milestone is a testament to our expertise in delivering comprehensive financial solutions and reinforces our commitment to be a trusted partner in the ever-evolving global markets."
