Union Properties' $109m debt deal approved
Dubai, April 14, 2013
Dubai's Union Properties received shareholder's approval plans to extend a Dh400 million ($108.9 million) loan from Abu Dhabi Commercial Bank by another five years, the company said on Sunday.
The extension of the loan until August 20, 2017 was approved at an extraordinary general meeting on April 11, Union Properties said in a statement on Sunday. No financial terms of the debt extension was provided.
Union Properties was among the many property firms in Dubai that were hit by a property market collapse in 2009-10, which saw home prices plunging by more than half and a large number of projects being put on hold. Recovery has been gradual as heavy supply still weighs on the emirate's market.
It swung to a profit of Dh175.8 million in 2012, compared with a massive loss of Dh1.57 billion a year ago. The developer reached a Dh3.8-billion debt deal with largest shareholder Emirates NBD in 2012, where it transferred assets worth Dh1.1 billion to the bank.
Its remaining liabilities to ENBD worth 2.7 billion dirhams were also extended until 2017 as part of the debt deal.-Reuters
