Abu Dhabi's fastest growing stock International Holding Co. to list another two subsidiaries

Dubai: Abu Dhabi’s secondary market will remain busy, with International Holding Co. – the stock that’s still zooming on ADX charts – to list another two subsidiaries.

“We believe in local product and many of our fastest growing companies are homegrown in the UAE,” said Syed Basar Shueb, CEO and Managing Director of IHC. “Emirates Stallion Group and Al Seer Marine are ambitious companies that have continued to expand in recent years. Listing on ADX’s Second Market, will offer investors an outstanding opportunity to participate in these well-established companies’ success journey.”

The IHC stock on its own has put in triple-digit growth rates over the last year, and the streak continues to this day, with upbeat first quarter numbers. 

These follow those of Palm Sports, Easylease and Zee Stores on ADX’s second market last year. The two new listings will commence shortly and include:

Vast network of interests

IHC also announced investments such as a stake in SpaceX, Elon Musk’s aerospace company, a partnership with DAL Group for an agricultural development in Sudan; and Multiply’s acquisition of a stake in New York marketing firm YieldMo.
