POWER & ENERGY
SIIL’s business activities within the Power & Energy sector are currently solely focused on Qatar. We recognise that the hydrocarbon rich country is a major international energy supplier, but also has enormous energy needs of its own. Therefore we believe that the demand in the oil and gas industry for services materials trading and support activities – in the form of contracting and maintenance works especially – are going to be continuous, with considerable competition and evolution.
The power industry is thus considered to be of major importance to SIIL, and we continue to explore possibilities in local, regional and international markets in this sector.

SIIL has always acknowledged that Real Estate is one of its most important asset classes. We believe that investing in real estate is an efficient means of utilising the company’s capital, as well as one of the most effective forms of cash management. Our guiding strategy here is to create income producing rather than dormant properties, while maximizing asset utilization.
Our real estate activities range from developing and operating our own projects, specializing in the development of boutique projects to add operational value, facility management and maintaining properties. We currently own and/or operate regional real estate properties in Qatar, Lebanon, UAE, KSA and Bahrain.

Remaining true to our main aim of maximising shareholder value, the SIIL Board of Directors allocates a set amount of available capital to be utilised in its investment strategy every year. Guided by the Corporate Center, which behaves as an Internal Capital Fund Provider, capital allocation is determined using a selection of return on investment expenditure (ROCE)-influencing factors, including net present value (NVP), market share, manager confidence and reputation, previous returns and cash flow timing.
SIIL invests both in its existing or new business activities and real estate properties as well as external businesses and markets. Our direct portfolio represents strategic investments by way of equity stakes in promising regional companies and our indirect portfolio consists of broad-based equity shares in the local, regional and international equity markets.
