“As a result of the extremely strong demand, the final offer price was set at the top of the price range and the company has raised 1.7 billion dirhams through the IPO,” the company said.
Institutional and retail tranches were both heavily oversubscribed, with total gross demand exceeding 35 billion dirhams, it said.
Reuters reported in November that Dubai Holding, the investment vehicle of Dubai’s ruler Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, was considering an IPO of TECOM Group.
