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.
