Alpha Dhabi Holding Sells 49% Stake in Alpha Dhabi Construction Holding to ADQ

Alpha Dhabi Holding, a leading investment holding company in the UAE, on Tuesday said that it will divest 49% of its subsidiary Alpha Dhabi Construction Holding (ADCH) to ADQ, an Abu Dhabi-based investment and holding company.

While ADH will retain a 51% shareholding in ADCH, it will continue its commitment to the construction sector in strategic partnership with ADQ.

The partnership will combine the expertise and capabilities of ADCH and ADQ, solidifying ADCH’s position as an industry leader and an engine of the Emirate’s growth. The transaction is subject to customary closing conditions, including regulatory approvals.

Led by its subsidiary Trojan Construction, ADCH is recognised for its commitment to national development, prioritising safety, quality, and timely project delivery.

ADCH has a track record of contributing to the realisation of iconic projects in the UAE, including the Zayed National Museum and the Guggenheim Museum, as well as supporting critical infrastructure such as the national railway network.

ADCH also successfully executes large-scale residential community projects for locally based real estate developers, including Aldar, Modon Properties, and Emaar, the company said in a disclosure to Abu Dhabi Securities Exchange (ADX), where its shares are traded.
