Kuwait: 24 April 2012: Al Mazaya Holding and Oman Housing Company has concluded the mid-March settlement agreement in which Al Mazaya acquired Plot number 186 in the Omani "Al Mawaleh" neighborhood of Muscat. The deal was signed by Rashid Yaqoub Al-Nafisi, Chairman of Al Mazaya Holding, and Sheikh Qais Bim Mistehil Al Meshani, chairman of Oman Housing Company.
The 23194 square metre land plot is allocated for commercial and residential use.
Both companies signed a joint venture agreement in August 2007 in which Al Mazaya Holding entered into a partnership with the Omani company, resulting in a real estate portfolio through which Al Mazaya Holding accrued dividends of 1.3 million Omani Riyals up until June 29, 2008
Under the agreement, the remaining 370,900 OR is due for the benefit of Al Mazaya Holding.
Commenting on this agreement, Eng. Nayef Mohammed Al Awadi, CEO of Al Mazaya Holding, said: "This move constitutes part of the Board of Directors' 2012 plan. It aims to resolve the outstanding real estate disputes, reach amicable solutions between Al Mazaya and other parties and reinvest the assets in a way that boosts access to risk-free new real estate projects in a meaningful way, with reasonable financial returns to be positively reflected on the financial position of the company."
"Al Mazaya's land plot at "Al Mawaleh" is a real prospect for a new real estate project, and a promising real estate investment due to its unmatched beauty and vital location. There are several ideas under study to decide which project can be implemented on this plot."
Oman Promising Real Estate Market
Driven by growing local and regional demand particularly from Saudis and Emiratis, Al Awadi pointed out that Al Mazaya sees promising opportunities in the Omani real estate market in the areas of health, education and tourism, as the country enjoys wonderful natural land and seascapes and a fine climate.
The mature nature of legislation and law in Oman constituted an additional incentive for Al Mazaya to acquire the "Al Mawaleh" plot and further increase the company's investments in the Sultanate. The regulation of real estate activities and the recently approved brokerage law reflect Oman's true aspiration to develop the real estate sector and attract further investments during the next few years, Al Mazaya's CEO concluded.
