Dubai will list 12.5 percent of TECOM Group, the operator of business free zones of more than 7,800 companies, on the Dubai Financial Market (DFM), as part of a slew of initial public offerings of government institutions aimed at increasing the size of the emirate’s capital market.

TECOM Group has officially announced its intention to proceed with an IPO of 12.5 percent of the total issued shares of the company’s capital on the DFM.

Dubai Holding will sell 625 million shares in TECOM, which includes 10 complexes in different locations in Dubai, including Dubai Internet City, Dubai Media City and Dubai Design District, among others.
