Secures AED58.6 million capital commitment from GEM Global
Dubai, UAE: Numisbing, the leading Dubai-based Numismatics & Arts company, is going for IPO in Nasdaq First North Stock Exchange in Stockholm, Sweden, next month.The company – valued at AED 100 million with 75 percent regional market share– will be the first Numismatic company from the Middle Eastern region to be listed in any stock exchange. Furthermore, the company has also secured AED 58.6 million (SEK 150 million) capital commitment agreement with GEM Global Yield Fund LLC SCS (GEM), a multibillion dollar private alternative investment group, based in New York.
“Our ambition is to expand the company while offering greater value to the shareholders and I’m confident our excellent track record will provide impetus to a good market response. While half of the IPO proceeds will be invested into collectibles assets, the rest will be used for expansion of the business to other regions”, added Mr Ram Kumar.
Numismatic collectors’ coins present a greater potential for higher yields than gold, backed up by several decades of highly positive trends.Provided that proper due diligence is conducted in building a portfolio, an investment in rare coins could present an opportunity for lucrative returns. The market is by nature limited, and as a result, interest continues to grow at a constant upward rate, driving higher prices in the medium and long term.
An index of material, alternative access clauses compiled by consultancy firm Knight Frank shows that the yield of rare coins over a period of ten years up to 2016 increased by 195%, easily surpassing art (139%), stamps (133%), furniture (31%), and the S&P 500 Index (58%).
“The incentive to invest in historical coins has only grown over recent years, and investors across the international stock market are seeking new ways to diversify their investment portfolios. Indeed,investment advisors world over are now recommending that four percent of each investment portfolio should consist of collector’s items,” further commented Ram Kumar.
Numisbing has grown rapidly and nearly doubled its turnover in the last two years with growth remaining steady and 2019 looking to be a promising year. The unique business model and innovative procedures have brought about great advancements in the last six years. The profitability of the company since its inception is high, which has brought with it a high market share. Moreover, only a few listed companies worldwide actually specialize in rare and antique coins and other rare collector’s items.
