Abu Dhabi-based hospital operator Burjeel Holdings plans to offer an 11 percent stake in an initial public offering on the Abu Dhabi Securities Exchange, the company said in a statement on Monday.

VPS Healthcare owns 79.8 percent of Burjeel.

The offering begins on September 30 and closes on October 4. The listing is planned for October 10.

On September 19, Abu Dhabi-based International Holding Company purchased a 15 percent stake in Barjeel.

Founded in 2007, Burjeel Holdings is a private healthcare services provider, with a growing presence in the GCC. It has a network of 39 hospitals and clinics across the Middle East and India.  

Last month, Burjeel CEO Shamsheer Vayalil announced plans to expand into Saudi Arabia and invest SAR 3.75 billion ($1 billion) by 2030.
