Investcorp holds exclusive workshop for members of Dubai Business Women Council

Dubai, 8 October 2017 – Investcorp, a leading global provider and manager of alternative investment products and solutions, today held an exclusive workshop for the members of Dubai Business Women Council (“DBWC”) on the process of investing into a company and preparing it for sale. The workshop, entitled “Preparing your business for sale”, was hosted by Walid Majdalani, Co-head of Corporate Investment – MENA, at Dubai Chamber of Commerce and Industry’s head office.

The session provided a detailed overview on the full investment process, drawing on Investcorp’s extensive investment experience over the past 35 years. It also touched upon the business landscape in the GCC and the opportunities that financial investors have in a region where 80% of all firms are family owned.

Addressing DBWC’s members, Majdalani said, “In a region dominated by family businesses, we believe that there is a significant opportunity for financial investors to help these businesses embark on the next phase of their growth. Preparing companies for sale is an exciting and rewarding challenge. It is a lengthy process that requires a lot of preparatory work throughout the investment life cycle in order to make sure that the investment as a whole is ready for an exit over a period of time.”

“At Investcorp, we have a strong record of investing in the GCC, where 12 out of our 15 investments are in family owned or run businesses. Our deep understanding of the changing dynamics of the GCC market, together with our global expertise and experience, have allowed us to establish a strong market position.”

This is the first of many workshops that Investcorp is organising for DBWC’s members, and the third of a series of seminars in association with the Dubai Chamber of Commerce and Industry as part of the Memorandum of Understanding the two institutions signed in 2016.
