Dubai-listed contractor Arabtec Holding said on Thursday its shareholder Aabar Investments had agreed to give it a AED400 million ($108.9m) debt facility to help weather “challenging” conditions in the regional construction market.


The money will provide Arabtec with additional funding to use towards delivering ongoing and newly awarded projects in a timely manner, said Saeed Mohamed al-Mehairbi, acting chief executive of Arabtec Holding.


Abu Dhabi state fund Aabar Investments owns 36 per cent of the company.
