Gulf Capital Postpones IPO; Mulls Acquisitions

Gulf Capital Pvt. JSC has postponed plans to go public because of the “soft” equity markets but will plough ahead with as many as six acquisitions in 2015, Karim El Solh, Chief Executive Officer of Gulf Capital, said. “We realized with liquidity being plenty, and banks lending at very attractive rates, it was much more optimal for us to fund ourselves using debt rather than the equity market,” said Karim El Solh on the sidelines of a conference in Abu Dhabi. Gulf Capital is not the only firm to put IPO plans on hold. "We’re looking aggressively on anything consumer-related,” said Solh. “I think we expect between private equity and credit to do four to six transactions this year.”
