AVIVO GROUP

Al Masah Capital distributes shares of AVIVO Group, a regional healthcare operator. AVIVO Group was established in 2011, with the objective to create a regional investment healthcare company of primary care and diagnostic centers offering a wide spectrum of healthcare services and having a footprint stretching from the GCC to North Africa. AVIVO Group’s investment strategy consists of targeting well located and profitable healthcare assets offering significant growth opportunities with a special focus on the lower to middle income segment. AVIVO Group currently operates 32 assets which include a portfolio of hospitals, medical centers, diagnostic centers and pharmacies across the GCC. The company currently employs more than 248 doctors and services more than 1.3 million patients per year.

We believe in the tremendous opportunities offered by the healthcare sector in the region and see significant growth in the future given the fast-growing population and especially the upcoming mandatory health insurance requirements in many of the GCC countries, which are expected to make insurance coverage mandatory for both GCC nationals and expatriates. This will have a significant positive impact on the region’s healthcare sector, where more than 50% of the patients are still not insured.

Diamond Lifestyle limited

Al Masah Capital distributes shares of Diamond Lifestyle limited (DLL), a specialized food and beverage investment company.

DLL was incorporated in December 2012 as a Cayman Islands exempted company with limited liability to create a diversified food and beverage services platform in the GCC region. The company plans to own and manage casual dining restaurants, quick service restaurants and fast casual eateries with an emphasis on fashionable, trendy and novel international and home grown concepts. DLL’s primary focus is to acquire profitable businesses generating strong cash flows. DLL currently owns and operates Johnny Rockets, the iconic American gourmet burger chain in the UAE. The chain has 19 restaurants in the UAE and 9 new outlets under development and a sub franchise agreement to open 4 restaurants in Oman underway. DLL plans to invest $250m in the food & beverage sector by 2020.

The combination of high population growth, young demographic mix, high disposable income, favorable consumption habits, political stability and the UAE’s emergence as a prime tourist destination made a strong investment case to establish DLL.

Gulf Pinnacle Logistics

Al Masah Capital distributes shares of Gulf Pinnacle Logistics Limited (GPL), a logistics and transportation company.

Established most recently in May-2014, GPL has the vision to become a MENASEA-focused fully integrated logistics and transportation holding company. The company aims to become an ‘integrator’ of the highly fragmented mid-sector market, encompassing four unique business models: freight-forwarding, warehousing, road transportation and courier & e-commerce services. GPL’s mission is to aid in making international trade more seamless for the mass market that cannot afford the large scale players.

MENA & SE Asia is an attractive region for the logistics and transportation industry, since the region has historically been an international trading hub. Today, with the world trade growing faster than the world GDP, this region is set to boom owing to its strategic location, top-ranked transportation infrastructure (spanning sea ports, airports and road), low fuel costs and existence of long-standing successful logistics firms.

GPL made its first two acquisitions in December 2014 with 75% equity stake in Abdul Muhsen Shipping and 87.5% in So-Safe Logistics. These are two mid-sector assets giving exposure to GPL in the shipping industry around Dubai’s Jebel Ali Port. Both of these assets in the Jebel Ali Free Zone area (north and south), own a combined land area of 46,638 sq. meters and a built-up warehouse area of 18,410 sq. meters. Gulf Pinnacle Limited plans to invest $250m in the logistics sector over the course of the next three years.
