With its accomplishments over the years, Emaar Properties (PJSC) is now become one of the leading real estate companies in the world. It is listed on the Dubai Financial Market as a Public Joint Stock Company and also a part of Dow Jones Arabia Titans Index. The growth of the company reflects the strong demand of residential properties in Dubai, and the resultant increase in associated prices. Emaar has also managed to diversify its development activities by building hospitals, shopping malls, education centres, and financial institutions. (Emaar Properties, 2008)

2.1 Mission

Emaar has a mission “to transform into a one-stop, global solution provider for lifestyle, including homes, work, play, leisure, retail, health, education, finance, industry and more.” (Emaar Properties, 2008)

Starting from UAE the company expanded its operations in the following 16 countries to cover the global property market demand.

In 2004, Emaar had split its share's value from AED 10 to AED 1 per share to improve and shield the shareholders interests towards the company. By July 2005, Emaar equity capital got doubled as the shares were affordable to the investors at a nominal price. (Emaar Properties, 2008)

3. Business Activity

Emaar primary business activity is to purchase land attain all the required Government approvals, design and develop that land in to freehold development real estate apartments in the market.

Emaar was one of the initial developers who started the property sale on freehold to expats in Dubai. Emaar’s total estimated share of land in Dubai itself is c235m Square metres. Government of Dubai owns 32% of Emaar real estate developers.

3.1 Dubai’s Property Market

Emaar’s focus and its base has been Dubai market, Dubai being a global hub has a lot of demand for property. It is considered to be fastest growing city than any other globally both in percentage and fixed terms. There is an estimation of about 50,000 visitors transiting in Dubai every week. Due to the high need for rental properties the demand has been inelastic. Every year there is average increase of 25-40% in the rents.

As published in Gulf News “Dubai government has capped the annual rent increase at a maximum of seven per cent on all properties” (Ashfaq, 2007). Even after the rent cap, residents are still facing issues as the landlords resist in renewal of existing contracts as they get the new tenants for almost 50 to 60% higher rents.

Higher rents tend to make property investment attractive which in turn is boost the demand for freehold apartment. Residents in rental apartments usually get fed up and are attracted towards buying options which has been an additional advantage to Emaar over the years.

Another important factor is the foreign inflow investments. UAE being a tax free country the investor’s capital are not taxed and the expats were given a 99 years of residency on every purchase of free hold which was a factor of huge investments in the property market initially and high returns to Emaar.
