March 21 (Bloomberg) -- Industries Qatar, the Persian Gulf country’s second-biggest company by market value, will “explore alternative sources of finance” to fund growth, Abdulrahman Ahmad Al-Shaibi, the company’s chief coordinator, said in its 2011 annual report.

Industries Qatar received a AA minus credit rating from Standard & Poor’s last month and a Aa3 rating from Moody’s Investors Service last year. Both ratings were one level below the sovereign-credit grade for the country, Al-Shaibi said.
