Dubai’s Rise as a M&A Powerhouse
Dubai, a towering force in the Middle East, now stands as a beacon for mergers and acquisitions. Local enterprises are embarking on global odysseys, while foreign counterparts are lured by Dubai’s flourishing economy. This dynamic panorama has firmly established the UAE as one of the most coveted investment destinations.
The Dubai Company Law anchors two pivotal forms of company amalgamation:
Both amalgamation types necessitate approval from the Securities and Commodities Authority (SCA) for joint stock companies in Dubai. For mergers, a formal agreement, compliant with the UAE Civil Code, is imperative.
Acquiring Excellence: Share vs. Asset
Encompasses purchasing shares in a target company, securing a stake in its ownership.
Focuses solely on procuring a company’s assets during the amalgamation, sidestepping equity considerations.
