Dubai Investments divests Marmum Dairy, USP

DUBAI, February 8, 2017

Dubai Investments (DIC) has announced that its wholly-owned subsidiary Dubai Investments Industries (DII) has divested its 100 per cent stake in Marmum Dairy Farm and its distribution unit United Sales Partners (USP) to UAE-based Elite Agro, a subsidiary of Emirates Advanced Investments Group.

Khalid Bin Kalban, managing director and CEO of Dubai Investments, said: “Dubai Investments acquired Marmum Dairy Farm in 1996, and established USP in 1999 and these investments were well timed as the company capitalised on the rapid growth of the food sector in the region.

"With a successful diversification strategy as part of its business, the companies attracted a lot of strategic interest. The overall impact of this exit on Dubai Investments income statement was gain of Dh186 million,” he said.

He added: “The divestment in Marmum and USP is part of the company’s strategy to continuously create value for its stakeholders. The sale to Elite Agro will enable Marmum and USP to reach next level of growth given the synergy of their businesses.” - TradeArabia News Service
