Multinational Companies in the UAE 2010 Directory

Foreword
Welcome to the 13th Edition of the Multinational Companies in the UAE Directory, published
by Business Monitor International, which brings together in one resource the majority of
these multinational, joint venture and affiliate companies currently engaged in business in this
strategic market.
The 2010 Directory has been thoroughly researched and updated at source by appointed agents
and our own corporate research team. It includes thousands of additional senior executive
contacts and titles; email and website addresses; greatly expanded notes describing a companys
business activity; and many newly identified multinational subsidiary and joint venture companies
operating in the UAE.
A significant role in the UAEs development is being played by thousands of multinational
companies, subsidiaries, joint ventures and their representatives, agents and distributors. For the
user of this Directory, some of these companies may represent competitors, or possible acquisition
targets which require close monitoring. Others are potential customers, partners or suppliers
offering new sales leads and exciting marketing opportunities, both in the UAE and overseas.
A valuable feature of the Directory is the many links we have made between local subsidiaries
and both their regional and parent head offices around the world, for which comprehensive
contact details are given. These regional and parent links allow you to make direct approaches
to a multinational company, either at local, regional or head office levels.
Fully indexed by company name, industry classification, nationality and both regional and parent
head offices, the Directory allows users to instantly access a corporate elite of decision-makers
in the UAE; to identify potential competitors, partners, customers and suppliers; to establish
management and recruitment contacts; to create acquisition and investment opportunities; to
expedite market research and analysis, and to generate mailing lists.
BMIs Multinational Companies Directories series, comprising of 51 titles, have become a
valued reference source among corporate and other organisations both in the UAE and around
the world.
BMIs new premium online provides our customers all over the world with instant, password-
controlled remote access, either on a single or multi-user basis. Corporate data on the online service
is also updated daily by our corporate research team. All 51 of our Multinational Companies
Directories are also available on CD-ROM, providing customers with a remarkably powerful
research tool featuring full search criteria, plus print, copying and export facilities (see overleaf
for further details about both our online service and CD-ROM).

Bespoke description of business activity
Where information has been made available, we have been able to include a bespoke,
in your own words description of a companys business activities, supplementing
the industry classification.
Date of establishment
Number of employees
These are mostly estimates, being the mean figure of an employee range confirmed by
multinational subsidiaries in the course of research. Where multinational companies
have confirmed actual employee size, this figure has been given.
Annual Sales Revenue
A standard methodology is used to derive all local sales estimates on the database. Having
confirmed a mulitinational companys group sales per capita, this figure is multiplied by
the companys local employee size at a given subsidiary location. Where multinational
subsidiaries have confirmed actual local sales figures, these have been given.
Parent head office
Includes full contact details. Company entries are listed alphabetically by company
name. The Directory features five indices, three of which list subsidiaries by company
name, industry classification and nationality, and a fourth and fifth by regional and
parent head offices.

Methodology
The Multinational Companies in the UAE 2010 Directory has been researched and
collated by directly contacting all listed companies by questionnaire, telephone, fax

In those cases where companies have failed to respond to our various requests to provide
and verify their company details, or have failed to respond fully, or have specifically
requested that their details be omitted from the Yearbook, we have been unable to
provide a comprehensive data set.
