Indias Enforcement Directorate has imposed a INR70 billion fine on Etisalat DB Telecom India, a venture between DB Realty and Etisalat (ETEL.AD), for foreign exchange violations related to a probe into the sale of wireless permits, the Press Trust of India (PTI) reported, citing officials in the agency. Etisalat DB has been given 30 days to explain why the fine shouldnt be levied on it, PTI added. (Bloomberg) Etisalat: AED10.85, Rating: Neutral, FV: AED12.54, MCap: USD23,374 million, ETISALAT UH / ETEL.AD TDICs debts not backed by the Government of Abu Dhabi Tourism Development and Investment Co. (TDIC), the Government of Abu Dhabi-owned real estate and resort developer, announced that its planned USD3 billion notes programme will not be guaranteed by the Government of Abu Dhabi, according to a recently circulated bond prospectus. TDICs commercial debt amounted to AED10.5 billion (USD2.9 billion) at the end of December 2010. While the Government of Abu Dhabi announced in March that it backed TDIC fully and conditionally, it does not guarantee TDICs debt, including bonds. According to the prospectus, the government is not guaranteeing any of the issuers or TDICs obligations in respect of the notes and holders of the notes do not benefit from any legally enforceable claim against the government. The bond prospectus released also revealed a 28% reduction in its budgeted expenditure to AED13.4 billion (USD3.65 billion) for 2011 through projects being put on hold or scaled back. None of the projects being hibernated are under construction, according to the prospectus. TDIC, which is developing branches of the Guggenheim and Louvre museums in Abu Dhabi, generated a loss of AED1.2 billion in 2010 versus a loss of AED551 million for 2009, financial statements in the prospectus showed.

QE expects to launch Direct Market Access Service this summer Qatar Exchange (QE) expects to launch the Direct Market Access (DMA) system, also known as sponsored access service, later this summer, Qatar News Agency quoted QEs Chief Operating Officer (COO), Olivier Gueris, as saying. This system offers international and local investors direct access to the market without going through the local brokers Order Management System. They would need to be sponsored by a local member of the exchange for direct access to the market, which guarantees higher confidentiality of their orders and much lower system latency, Gueris explained. We have taken a dedicated line between Doha and London, which connects to the worldwide network of the New York Stock Exchange, potentially providing Qatar access to thousands of brokerage houses and buy sides. We are currently finalising the details with the regulator (Qatar Financial Market Authority) ahead of the launch, he added.
