PRESENTATION OF FINANCIAL AND OTHER INFORMATION

Presentation of Financial Information Unless otherwise indicated, the financial information herein has been derived from the audited financial statements of Tamweel for the three years ended 31 December 2005 to 31 December 2007 (the Audited Accounts) and the unaudited interim condensed financial statements for the 3 months ended 31 March 2008. The Audited Accounts have been prepared in accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) issued by the International Accounting Standards Board, and relevant federal laws of the UAE, consistently applied. Certain Defined Terms and Conventions References to Dubai herein are references to the Emirate of Dubai; and references to the UAE herein are to the United Arab Emirates. Certain figures and percentages included in this Prospectus have been subject to rounding adjustments; accordingly figures shown in the same category presented in different tables may vary slightly and figures shown as totals in certain tables may not be an arithmetic aggregation of the figures which precede them. All references in this Prospectus to U.S. dollars, U.S.$ and $ refer to United States dollars being the legal currency for the time being of the United States of America, all references to UAE dirham and AED refer to the United Arab Emirates dirham, being the legal currency for the time being of the United Arab Emirates. The UAE dirham has been pegged to the U.S. dollar since 22 November 1980. The mid point between the official buying and selling rates for the UAE dirham is at a fixed rate of AED 3.6725 = U.S.$1.00. Certain Publicly Available Information Certain statistical data and other information appearing in this Prospectus have been extracted from public sources. Neither the Issuer nor Tamweel accepts responsibility for the factual correctness of any such statistics or information but the Issuer and Tamweel accept responsibility for accurately extracting and transcribing such statistics and information and believe, after due inquiry, that such statistics and information represent the most current publicly available statistics and information from such sources at and for the periods with respect to which they have been presented and do not omit anything which would render the reproduced information inaccurate or misleading.

SERVICE OF PROCESS AND ENFORCEMENT OF LIABILITIES Tamweel is incorporated in the UAE and all of its operations and assets are located outside the United Kingdom. As a result, it may not be possible for investors to effect service of process within the United Kingdom upon Tamweel or to enforce against it, in courts located in the United Kingdom, judgments obtained in courts located in the United Kingdom. Currently, the majority of Tamweels assets are located in the UAE. The Emirate of Dubais courts are unlikely to enforce an English judgment without re-examining the merits of the claim and may not observe the choice by the parties of English law as the governing law of the transaction. In addition, even if English law is accepted as the governing law, this will only be applied to the extent that it is compatible with the Emirate of Dubai law and public policy. Moreover, judicial precedent in the UAE has no binding effect on subsequent decisions and there is no formal system of reporting court decisions in the UAE. These factors create greater judicial uncertainty than would be expected in certain other jurisdictions.

These forward looking statements are contained in Overview of the Offering, Risk Factors, Business Description of Tamweel PJSC and other sections of this Prospectus. In each case these forward looking statements have been based on the current view of Tamweels management with respect to future events and financial performance. Although Tamweel believes that the expectations, estimates and projections reflected in Tamweels forward looking statements are reasonable as of the date of this Prospectus, if one or more of the risks or uncertainties materialise, including those which Tamweel has identified in this Prospectus, or if any of Tamweels underlying assumptions prove to be incomplete or inaccurate, the actual results of operations may vary from those expected, estimated or predicted. These forward looking statements speak only as at the date of this Prospectus. Without prejudice to any requirements under applicable laws and regulations, Tamweel expressly disclaims any obligation or undertaking to disseminate after the date of this Prospectus any updates or revisions to any forward looking statements contained herein to reflect any change in expectations thereof or any change in events, conditions or circumstances on which any such forward looking statement is based.

Level: 5 From: 5 Wednesday, July 16, 2008 11:29 eprint3 3989 Section 01 : 3989 Section 01

The Service Agent shall distribute Portfolio Profit (as defined herein) generated by the Portfolio Assets to the Trustee. Pursuant to the Declaration of Trust, the Issuer in its capacity as Trustee, will declare a trust for the benefit of the Certificateholders over all of its rights, title, interest, present and future, in, to and under the Portfolio Assets and each of the Transaction Documents, all moneys which may now be, or hereafter from time to time are, standing to the credit of the Transaction Account and all proceeds of the foregoing. Periodic Payments by the Issuer On the second Business Day prior to each Periodic Distribution Date (each a Distribution Date), the Service Agent shall distribute Portfolio Profit generated by the Portfolio Assets to the Trustee. The Trustee shall apply such Portfolio Profit on each Periodic Distribution Date to pay the Periodic Distribution Amount due on such date. If the Portfolio Profit payable to the Trustee on each Distribution Date is greater than the relevant Periodic Distribution Amount, that surplus Portfolio Profit will be recorded as a reserve amount and shall be credited by the Service Agent into the Profit Reserve Account (as defined herein) which may be used to fund future payments of Periodic Distribution Amounts. Any amount standing to the credit of the Profit Reserve Account on the Maturity Date will be due and payable to the Service Agent as an incentive fee for its performance. The Service Agent may, however, prior to the Maturity Date, use the amounts standing to the credit of the Profit Reserve Account (Advance Incentive Fee) so long as any amounts deducted from the Profit Reserve Account prior to the Maturity Date are re-credited to fund any shortfall in the Periodic Distribution Amount, if so required. If the amounts standing to the credit of the Profit Reserve Account are insufficient (after the Service Agent has re-credited any Advance Incentive Fee) to fund any shortfall in any Periodic Distribution Amount, the Service Agent may meet the shortfall through the provision of Sharia compliant financing and if this is not possible, for any reason, it may provide a loan on a qard basis to the Trustee to meet such shortfall which, in each case, shall be repayable in the manner set out in the Service Agency Agreement. Redemption Payments Within a specified period prior to the Maturity Date, the Issuer, in its capacity as Trustee, will have the right to require Tamweel (as Obligor under the Purchase Undertaking (as defined herein)) to purchase all of the Trustees rights, title and interest in and to the Portfolio Assets. The Exercise Price payable by the Obligor in respect of such purchase is intended to fund the Redemption Amount payable by the Issuer under the Certificates on the Maturity Date. The Certificates may be redeemed prior to the Maturity Date following a Dissolution Event, a Rating Downgrade Event or a Tax Event (each, as defined herein). The amounts payable under the Certificates on any Redemption Date will be funded by the Obligor paying for the acquisition of all of the Trustees right, title and interest in and to the Portfolio Assets, (i) following a Dissolution Event or a Rating Downgrade Event, pursuant to the exercise by the Trustee of its right under the Purchase Undertaking to require the Obligor to purchase all of the Trustees rights, title and interest in and to the Portfolio Assets or, (ii) following a Tax Event, pursuant to the exercise by Tamweel of its right under the Sale Undertaking to require the Trustee to sell all of the Trustees rights, title and interest in and to the Portfolio Assets.

The Periodic Distribution Date falling in July 2013. 100 per cent. of the aggregate face amount of the Certificates. Each Certificate represents an undivided ownership interest in the Trust Assets and will rank pari passu, without any preference, with the other Certificates. The Certificates will be limited recourse obligations of the Issuer. 21 July, 21 October, 21 January and 21 April in each year, commencing on 21 October 2008 up to and including 21 July 2013 (or if any such day is not a Business Day (as defined herein) the following Business Day unless it would thereby fall into the next calendar month, in which event such day shall be the immediately preceding Business Day) (each, a Periodic Distribution Date). On each Periodic Distribution Date, Certificateholders will be entitled to receive a periodic distribution amount equal to the product of 2.25 per cent. per annum plus EIBOR (as defined in Condition 19.1) on the Aggregate Face Amount as at the end of the relevant Periodic Distribution Period (as defined in Condition 19.1) on an actual/360 basis (the Periodic Distribution Amount) from moneys received in respect of the Trust Assets (representing the Portfolio Profit in respect of the Portfolio Assets derived from payments made to the Trustee by the Service Agent under the Service Agency Agreement). Unless previously redeemed, the Certificates shall be redeemed in full by the Issuer on the Maturity Date for an amount equal to the Redemption Amount (as defined below) as of such date and the Trust shall be dissolved following such payment in full. Redemption Amount means, as of any date, the aggregate face amount of the Certificates then outstanding plus all unpaid accrued Periodic Distribution Amounts and all other unpaid accrued amounts (if any) due and payable under the Conditions as of the relevant Redemption Date (including, without limitation, Condition 8). Redemption for Taxation Reasons Following the occurrence of a Tax Event (as defined in Condition 6.4) and the exercise, in accordance with the Sale Undertaking, by Tamweel of its right to require the Trustee to sell all of its rights, title and interest in and to the Portfolio Assets to Tamweel, the Issuer shall, having given not less than 30 nor more than 65 days notice to the Certificateholders (which notice shall be irrevocable), redeem all, but not some only, of the Certificates at the Redemption Amount on the Tax Redemption Date (each, as defined in Condition 19.1) and the Trust shall be dissolved following such payment in full. Following the occurrence of a Rating Downgrade Event (as defined in Condition 19.1), the Certificates may be redeemed in full on the Rating Downgrade Redemption Date (as defined in Condition 6.3) at the Redemption Amount, and the Trust shall be dissolved following such payment in full.

Redemption and Dissolution following a Dissolution Event

Following the occurrence of a Dissolution Event (as defined below), the Certificates may be redeemed in full on the Dissolution Redemption Date (as defined in Condition 10) at the Redemption Amount, and the Trust shall be dissolved following such payment in full. A Dissolution Event occurs upon the occurrence of any of the following events: (a) a default is made in the payment of any Periodic Distribution Amount or the Redemption Amount on the date fixed for payment thereof and such default continues unremedied for a period of three Business Days; or the Issuer defaults in the performance or observance of any of its other obligations under or in respect of the Declaration of Trust and (except in any case where the failure is incapable of remedy) such default remains unremedied for 30 days after written notice thereof, addressed to the Issuer by the Delegate, has been delivered to the Issuer; or an Event of Default occurs under the Purchase Undertaking; or at any time it is or will become unlawful for the Issuer to perform or comply with any of its obligations under the Transaction Documents to which it is a party or any of the obligations of the Issuer under the Transaction Documents to which it is a party are not, or cease to be, legal, valid, binding and enforceable; or either (i) the Issuer becomes insolvent or is unable to pay its debts as they fall due; (ii) an administrator or liquidator of the whole or substantially the whole of the undertaking, assets and revenues of the Issuer is appointed (or application for any such appointment is made); (iii) the Issuer takes any action for a readjustment or deferment of any of its obligations or makes a general assignment or an arrangement or composition with or for the benefit of its creditors; or (iv) the Issuer ceases or threatens to cease to carry on all or substantially the whole of its business (otherwise than for the purposes of or pursuant to an amalgamation, reorganisation or restructuring whilst solvent); or an order or decree is made or an effective resolution is passed for the winding up, liquidation or dissolution of the Issuer; or any event occurs which under the laws of the Cayman Islands has an analogous effect to any of the events referred to in paragraphs (e) and (f) above.

Role of Delegate

Pursuant to the Declaration of Trust, the Trustee shall delegate all of its rights and powers, authorities, duties and discretions to the Delegate. In particular, the Delegate shall be entitled to: (a) deliver an Exercise Notice to the Obligor in accordance with the Purchase Undertaking after the occurrence of a Dissolution Event or a Rating Downgrade Event; and following a Dissolution Event, take any enforcement action in the name of the Trustee against either the Obligor or the Service Agent.

(b)

Level: 5 From: 5 Wednesday, July 16, 2008 11:29 eprint3 3989 Section 02 : 3989 Section 02

The Trustee will act in accordance with the directions and instructions given to it by the Delegate in the exercise of the relevant delegated powers, following the delegation of such powers becoming effective. The Delegate is entitled to various protections and limitations on its liability, as set out in the Declaration of Trust. The Delegate is not obliged to take any action in connection with the Declaration of Trust and the Certificates unless it is reasonably satisfied that Tamweel will be able to indemnify it against all Liabilities (as defined in the Declaration of Trust) which may be incurred in connection with such action. Transaction Account All payments by any of the Service Agent or the Obligor to the Trustee under each Transaction Document to which it is party will be deposited into an account of the Trustee maintained for such purpose (the Transaction Account). Distributions of monies deriving from the Trust Assets will be made to Certificateholders from funds standing to the credit of the Transaction Account in the order of priority set out below. Priority of Distributions On each Periodic Distribution Date, or on a Redemption Date, the Trustee shall apply the moneys standing to the credit of the Transaction Account in the following order of priority: (i) first, to pay the Delegate an amount equal to any sum payable to it on account of its properly incurred fees, costs, charges and expenses and to pay or provide for the payment or satisfaction of any Liability incurred (or reasonably expected to be incurred) by the Delegate pursuant to the Declaration of Trust or in connection with any of the other Transaction Documents or the Conditions; second, only if payment is due on a Periodic Distribution Date, to the Principal Paying Agent for application in or towards payment pari passu and rateably of all Periodic Distribution Amounts due but unpaid; and third, only if such payment is due on a Redemption Date, to the Principal Paying Agent for application in or towards payment pari passu and rateably of the Redemption Amount; and fourth, only if such payment is due on a Redemption Date, in payment of the surplus (if any) to the Issuer.

(ii)

(iii)

(iv) Limited Recourse

No payment of any amount whatsoever shall be made in respect of the Certificates by the Issuer or any agents thereof except to the extent that funds are available therefor from the Trust Assets. In addition, no Certificateholder will be able to petition for, or join any other person in instituting proceedings for, the reorganisation, liquidation, winding up or receivership of the Issuer or the Obligor (to the extent that each fulfils all of its obligations under the relevant Transaction Documents to which it is a party), or any of the Trustee, the Delegate, the Agents or any of their affiliates as a consequence of such shortfall or otherwise. The Certificates will be represented on issue by interests in a Global Certificate, in registered form, which will be deposited with, and registered in the name of The Bank of New York Depository (Nominees) Limited, as nominee for The Bank of New York Mellon, acting through its London Branch in its capacity as the common depositary for Euroclear and Clearstream, Luxembourg.

Level: 5 From: 5 Wednesday, July 16, 2008 11:29 eprint3 3989 Section 02 : 3989 Section 02

Definitive Certificates evidencing holdings of Certificates will be issued in exchange for interests in the Global Certificate only in certain limited circumstances. See section Global Certificate. Clearance and Settlement Certificateholders must hold their interest in the Global Certificate in book-entry form through either Euroclear or Clearstream, Luxembourg. Transfers within Clearstream, Luxembourg or Euroclear will be in accordance with the usual rules and operating procedures of the relevant clearing system. The Certificates will be issued in registered form in face amounts of AED 500,000 and integral multiples of AED 100,000 in excess thereof. All payments by each of Tamweel and the Trustee under the Transaction Documents to which it is a party and all payments in respect of the Certificates shall be made in full without withholding or deduction for, or on account of, any present or future taxes, levies, duties, fees, assessments or other charges of whatever nature, imposed or levied by or on behalf of a Relevant Jurisdiction (as defined in Condition 19.1) (Taxes), unless the withholding or deduction of the Taxes is required by law. In such event, (a) where Tamweel is required to make such a withholding or deduction, Tamweel will be required, pursuant to the relevant Transaction Document, to pay to the Trustee, and/or (b) where the Trustee is required to make such a withholding or deduction, the Trustee will be required to pay in respect of the Certificates, additional amounts so that, subject to certain exceptions, the full amount which otherwise would have been due and payable is received by the parties entitled thereto. See Condition 8 (Taxation). Application has been made for the Certificates to be listed on the primary exchange of the Dubai International Financial Exchange (the DIFX). There can be no assurance that the listing of the Certificates on the DIFX will take effect on the Closing Date or at all. The Certificates are expected to be assigned a rating of A3 by Moodys and A by Fitch. A rating is not a recommendation to buy, sell or hold securities, does not address the likelihood or timing of repayment and may be subject to revision, suspension or withdrawal at any time by the assigning rating organisation. A summary of the provisions for convening meetings of Certificateholders to consider matters relating to their interests as such are set forth under Condition 14. See section Taxation for a description of certain United Arab Emirates, Cayman Islands and European Union taxation considerations applicable to the Certificates. There are certain restrictions on the offer, sale and transfer of the Certificates which are set forth in section Subscription and Sale. The Transaction Documents are the Purchase Agreement, the Istisna Agreement, the Purchase Undertaking, the Sale Undertaking, the Service Agency Agreement, the Declaration of Trust, the Agency Agreement, the Costs Undertaking, the Certificates and any other agreements and documents designated as such by the Issuer and the Obligor.

Governing Law and Jurisdiction

The Transaction Documents (other than the Purchase Agreement and the Istisna Agreement) will be governed by English law and subject to the jurisdiction of the English courts. The Purchase Agreement and the Istisna Agreement will be governed by the laws of the Emirate of Dubai and applicable federal laws of the United Arab Emirates and subject to the jurisdiction of the courts of Dubai. In respect of any dispute under the Service Agency Agreement, the Declaration of Trust, the Agency Agreement, the Costs Undertaking and the Purchase Undertaking, Tamweel has consented to arbitration in accordance with the Rules of the International Chamber of Commerce if the Trustee so requires.

Waiver of Sovereign Immunity

Tamweel acknowledges in the Transaction Documents to which it is a party that to the extent that it may in any jurisdiction claim for itself or its assets or revenues immunity from suit, execution, before judgment or otherwise or other legal process and to the extent that such immunity (whether or not claimed) may be attributed to it or its assets or revenues, Tamweel represents and agrees that it will not claim and irrevocably and unconditionally waives such immunity in relation to any proceedings.

RISK FACTORS The purchase of Certificates may involve substantial risks and is suitable only for sophisticated investors who have the knowledge and experience in financial and business matters necessary to enable them to evaluate the risks and merits of an investment in the Certificates. Before making an investment decision, prospective purchasers of Certificates should consider carefully, in the light of their own financial circumstances and investment objectives, all of the information in this Prospectus. Neither the Issuer nor Tamweel represents that the statements below regarding the risks of holding any Certificates are exhaustive and the Issuer may be unable to pay amounts on or in connection with any Certificate for reasons other than those described below. Prospective investors should also read the detailed information set out elsewhere in this Prospectus and reach their own views prior to making any investment decision. Words and expressions defined in the Terms and Conditions shall have the same meanings in this section. RISKS RELATING TO THE ISSUER No operating history The Issuer is a newly formed entity and has no operating history. The Issuers only material assets, which will be held on trust for Certificateholders, will be the Trust Assets, including the obligation of Tamweel to make payments under the Transaction Documents to which it is a party. Therefore, the Issuer is subject to all the risks to which Tamweel is subject, to the extent that such risks could limit Tamweels ability to satisfy in full and on a timely basis its obligations under the Transaction Documents to which it is a party. See section Risk Factors relating to Tamweel for a further description of certain of these risks. Limited Recourse Recourse to the Issuer is limited to the Trust Assets and proceeds of the Trust Assets are the sole source of payments on the Certificates. Upon the occurrence of a Dissolution Event, the only remedy available to the Trustee or the Delegate, as the case may be, on behalf of the Certificateholders will be to exercise the right under the Purchase Undertaking to require Tamweel to purchase all of the Trustees rights, title and interest in and to the Portfolio Assets at the Exercise Price. Certificateholders will otherwise have no recourse to any assets of Tamweel (to the extent it fulfils all of its obligations under the Transaction Documents to which it is a party), the Joint Lead Managers, the Agents, the Delegate or any affiliate of any of the foregoing entities in respect of any shortfall in the expected amounts from the Trust Assets. Tamweel is obliged to make payments under the Transaction Documents to which it is a party directly to the Trustee, and the Trustee or the Delegate, as the case may be, on behalf of the Certificateholders, will have direct recourse against Tamweel to recover payments due to the Trustee from Tamweel pursuant to the Transaction Documents to which Tamweel is a party. There can be no assurance that the net proceeds of the realisation of, or enforcement with respect to, the Trust Assets will be sufficient to make all payments due in respect of the Certificates. In the event that the proceeds of the Trust Assets are not sufficient to satisfy the payments under the Certificates, the Certificateholders shall have no recourse against any other assets of the Issuer or the Trustee or against any director, shareholder, officer or employee of the Issuer or Trustee. Furthermore, under no circumstances shall any Certificateholder or the Trustee or the Delegate, as the case may be, have any right to cause the sale or other disposition of any of the Trust Assets except pursuant to the Purchase Undertaking and the sole right of the Trustee and the Certificateholders against Tamweel shall be to enforce the obligation of Tamweel to pay the Exercise Price under the Purchase Undertaking. The Delegate is not obliged to take any action following the occurrence of a Dissolution Event unless it has been directed to do so and has been indemnified and/or secured to its satisfaction. RISKS RELATING TO TAMWEEL Tamweels business requires reliable funding sources Tamweel will require additional funds to support home financing outlays and to support the future growth of its business. Tamweels ability to obtain external financing and the cost of such financing are dependent on numerous factors including general economic and capital market conditions, international financing

11

Level: 5 From: 5 Wednesday, July 16, 2008 11:29 eprint3 3989 Section 03 : 3989 Section 03

rates, credit rating, credit availability from banks or other lenders, investor confidence in Tamweel, and the success of Tamweels business. There can be no assurance that additional financing, either on a short-term or long-term basis, will be made available or, if available, that such financing will be obtained on terms favourable to Tamweel. Any failure to obtain financing in the amounts required, at rates that are appropriate to Tamweels business operations or at all could have a material adverse effect on the business, results of operations, financial condition or prospects of Tamweel. Tamweels funding sources are generally short term while its financing products are long term Tamweels ability to provide long term home financing is dependent on its ability to adequately source appropriate funds to provide financing to customers. Tamweel has historically relied upon capital contributions from founding members, public markets, bank financing and corporate investment deposits. Some of these sources of funds are short-term in nature. To manage liquidity risk, Tamweel must seek longterm funding sources congruent in duration to the financing provided to its customers. Tamweel may at times be required to obtain funding under unfavourable financial market conditions. Market conditions are dependent upon, amongst other things, the overall condition of the global and regional asset backed securities markets, the credit assessment criteria of credit rating agencies, the quality of Tamweels assets, and Tamweels performance on past securitisations. There is no guarantee that Tamweel will be able to source long term funding on viable terms so as to match its home finance product offering. A limitation on the part of Tamweel to adequately source funds with appropriate maturities could have a material adverse effect on Tamweels business, financial condition, results of operations or prospects. Tamweels business is subject to customer credit risk Tamweel employs formal procedures to assess and monitor credit risk. The management of Tamweel is of the opinion that these procedures are in line with applicable international standards and in accordance with regulations applicable to Tamweel. In addition, management regularly reviews the state of financing receivables and provision is made for any specific balances where recovery is doubtful. As at 31 March 2008, Tamweel did not have any payments in excess of 180 days overdue and less than 2 per cent. of its payments were overdue. Notwithstanding efforts on the part of Tamweel to manage credit exposure, no assurance can be given that Tamweels credit procedures will protect it against future defaults and such defaults could have a material adverse effect on Tamweels business, financial condition, results of operations or prospects. Tamweel generally owns the property against which it provides home financing. In the event of customer default, Tamweels ability to realise its collateral will be subject to conditions in the real estate market at that time. The real estate market is affected by many factors, including general economic conditions, availability of financing, interest rates and other factors, including supply and demand, that are beyond Tamweels control. No assurance can be given that Tamweel will be able to realise any property in amounts that exceed the debt due to it on a timely basis or at all. These factors could have a material adverse effect on Tamweels business, results of operations, financial condition or prospects. Tamweels business is subject to operational risks Operational risks and losses can result from fraud, error by employees, failure to document transactions properly or to obtain proper internal authorisation, failure to comply with regulatory requirements or conduct of business rules, failure of internal systems, equipment and external systems (including those of Tamweels counterparties or vendors) and the occurrence of natural disasters. Management is responsible for establishing an effective and efficient operational control environment in accordance with Tamweels standards so that Tamweels assets are adequately protected and operational risks are sufficiently mitigated. Although Tamweel has implemented risk controls and loss mitigation strategies it is not possible to entirely eliminate operational risks. Tamweel will, when appropriate, insure itself against operational risks. Notwithstanding insurance against operational risks, Tamweel might nonetheless be subject to losses arising from operational risk as a result of inadequate insurance coverage and delay in claim settlement. No assurance can be given that Tamweel will be successful in managing operational risk and any failure to manage such risk could have a material adverse effect on Tamweels business, financial condition, results of operations or prospects.

Level: 5 From: 5 Wednesday, July 16, 2008 11:29 eprint3 3989 Section 03 : 3989 Section 03

Tamweels business is reliant on qualified personnel Tamweels operations depend, in part, on the continued service of senior executives and other qualified personnel as well as Tamweels ability to recruit and retain skilled employees. The competition for such employees in the UAE is intense. Tamweels failure to manage its personnel needs successfully could have a material adverse effect on Tamweels business, financial condition, results of operations or prospects. Real estate valuation is inherently subjective and uncertain Property assets are inherently difficult to value. Tamweel provides financing based on market best estimates which are subject to substantial uncertainty and are made on the basis of assumptions which may not be correct. There can be no assurance that sales proceeds in the event of customer default would be sufficient to cover the finance provided by Tamweel. Multiple customer defaults could have a material adverse effect on Tamweels business, financial condition, results of operations or prospects. Since the incorporation of Tamweel, the demand for residential and commercial property in Dubai has increased substantially. Part of current demand has been based on the assumption that there will be continued economic growth in the UAE and continued political and financial stability. If this demand were to decrease it could have a material adverse effect on Tamweels business, financial condition, results of operations or prospects. Tamweels business is influenced by a principal beneficial shareholder Tamweels principal beneficial shareholder is the Government of Dubai, with an indirect shareholding of approximately 27.6 per cent. (while a further approximately 10.0 per cent. is held by Dubai Investment Group LLC, the majority of the shares of which are indirectly held by Dubai Holding LLC). By virtue of such shareholding, the Government of Dubai has the ability to influence Tamweels business significantly through its ability to control actions that require shareholder approval. Such influence by the Government of Dubai could have a material adverse effect on Tamweels business, financial condition, results of operations or prospects. Furthermore, if circumstances were to arise where the interests of the Government of Dubai or any future significant shareholder conflict with the interests of the holders of Certificates, the holders of the Certificates could be disadvantaged. Tamweels business is regionally concentrated in the UAE Tamweel currently has all of its operating businesses in the UAE. Tamweels business may be affected by the financial, political and general economic conditions prevailing from time to time in the UAE or the Middle East generally. These markets are subject to greater risks than more developed markets, including in some cases significant legal, economic and political risks that could have a material adverse effect on Tamweels business, financial condition, results of operations or prospects. Accordingly, investors should exercise particular care in evaluating the risks involved and must decide for themselves whether, in the light of those risks, their investment is appropriate. Generally, investment in such markets is only suitable for sophisticated investors who fully appreciate the significance of the risks involved. Tamweels business expansion strategy may not be successfully implemented and could lead to increased costs and lower profitability Tamweel intends to develop residential property financing businesses in Saudi Arabia and Egypt. Tamweels business and prospects must be considered in light of the inherent risks, uncertainties, expenses and difficulties encountered by companies such as Tamweel which are expanding geographically. There can be no assurance that the Tamweel will be successful in expanding its business in to these regions and any failure to do so could have a material adverse effect on Tamweels business, results or operations and financial condition. Competition represents a continuous pressure on Tamweels business High growth in the UAEs real estate market is attracting interest from local and international real estate companies. Barriers to entry are relatively low and Tamweel anticipates an increase in the number of home financiers entering the real estate market. The introduction of new laws regulating the real estate market and anticipated increased transparency of regulator frameworks and issuance of new title deeds are

13

Level: 5 From: 5 Wednesday, July 16, 2008 11:29 eprint3 3989 Section 03 : 3989 Section 03

expected to further remove barriers to entry and result in increased competition. An increase in competition could have a material adverse effect on Tamweels business, financial condition, results of operations or prospects. Tamweels success depends on its ability to manage growth Tamweels ability to maintain and manage its growth effectively requires expansion of management information system capabilities and operational systems and controls. Tamweel will need to attract, train and retain senior executives, managers, technical professionals and other employees. Failure to meet resource expansion requirements could have a material adverse effect on Tamweels business, financial condition, results of operations or prospects. Any acquisition made by Tamweel might expose Tamweel to integration risks associated with streamlining business activity, assets and personnel as well as servicing the debt obligations of the acquired company. The process of integrating an acquired business may involve unforeseen difficulties and may require a disproportionate amount of management attention and financial and other resources. At any point in time, Tamweel may be unable to continue to identify additional suitable acquisition opportunities, negotiate acceptable terms, obtain financing for acquisitions on satisfactory terms or successfully acquire identified targets. Joint ventures may expose Tamweel to additional liabilities Tamweel is currently involved in, and may enter into further, joint venture arrangements with third parties. When entering into partnerships with other entities, Tamweel might be held liable for the actions of its partner. As such, joint venture partnerships could have a material adverse effect on Tamweels business, financial condition, results of operations or prospects. Tamweels business is subject to political, economic and related considerations The UAE has enjoyed significant economic growth and relative political stability. There can be no assurance that such growth or stability will continue. Moreover, while the UAE governments policies have generally resulted in improved economic performance, there can be no assurance that such level of performance can be sustained. Tamweels business may also be materially adversely affected generally by political and economic developments in the UAE, the Middle East or the global market. Specific risks in the Middle East that may have a material impact on Tamweels business, operating results, cash flows, financial condition and prospects include: an increase in inflation and the cost of living; political, social and economic instability; any acts of warfare, civil clashes and terrorist activities; governments actions or interventions, including tariffs, protectionism and subsidies; regulatory, taxation and legal structure changes; difficulties and delays in obtaining new permits and consents for Tamweels operations or renewing existing ones; potential lack of reliability as to title to real property in certain jurisdictions where Tamweel operates; cancellation of contractual rights; lack of infrastructure; expropriation of assets; and inability to repatriate profits and/or dividends.

No assurance can be given that the UAE government will not implement regulations or fiscal or monetary policies, including policies, regulations, or new legal interpretations of existing regulations, relating to or affecting taxation, interest rates or exchange controls, or otherwise take actions which could have a 14

Level: 5 From: 5 Wednesday, July 16, 2008 11:29 eprint3 3989 Section 03 : 3989 Section 03

material adverse effect on Tamweels business, financial condition, results of operations or prospects or which could adversely affect the market price and liquidity of the Certificates. Tamweels business may be affected if there are geo-political events that prevent Tamweel from delivering its services. It is not possible to predict the occurrence of events or circumstances such as or similar to a war or the impact of such occurrences and no assurance can be given that Tamweel would be able to sustain its current profit levels or continue to operate as a viable business if such events or circumstances were to occur. Therefore a downturn or instability in certain sectors of the UAE, regional or global economy could have an adverse effect on Tamweels business, financial condition, results of operations or prospects. Expectations of Tamweels performance depends on future projections The information contained in this Prospectus relating to Tamweel may contain forward-looking statements based on Tamweels forecasts, expectations, estimates and current public information. This Prospectus takes into account Tamweels strategy, plans and capital expenditure forecasts. Tamweel does not guarantee its future performance, which might be subject to unforeseen risks and other elements outside the control of Tamweel. Certain predictions are based on assumptions vis--vis future events and may not be accurate. Some factors which may lead to a discrepancy between the Tamweels predictions and actual results include, but are not limited to, changes in laws and policies in regions where Tamweel has or intends to have an active presence; increase in competition due to, amongst other things, new market entrants, existing market players and new products; fluctuations in exchange rates, financing rates and inflation rates; and changes in laws. See risk factor Tamweels business is subject to political, economic and related considerations. RISKS RELATING TO THE DEVELOPING MARKETS Investments in emerging markets are subject to greater risk than investments in more developed markets Investors in emerging markets should be aware that these markets are subject to greater risks than more developed markets, including in some cases significant legal, economic and political risks. Accordingly, investors should exercise particular care in evaluating the risks involved and must decide for themselves whether, in the light of those risks, their investment is appropriate. Generally, investment in emerging markets is only suitable for sophisticated investors who fully appreciate the significance of the risk involved. Legal and regulatory systems may create an uncertain environment for investment and business activities Many countries in the MENA region are in the process of developing institutions and legal and regulatory systems which are not yet as firmly established as they are in Western Europe and the United States. Some countries (such as those countries comprising the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC)) are also in the process of transitioning to a market economy and, as a result, may experience changes in their economies and government policies (including, without limitation, policies relating to foreign ownership, repatriation of profits, property and contractual rights and planning and permit-granting regimes) that may affect Tamweels business. The MENA region has enjoyed significant economic growth and some countries (such as those in the GCC) have also enjoyed relative political stability. However, there can be no assurance that such growth or stability will continue. Moreover, while the governments policies in some MENA countries have generally resulted in improved economic performance to date, there can be no assurance that such level of performance can be sustained. No assurance can be given that the governments in the countries in which Tamweel maintains operations or owns assets will not implement regulations or fiscal or monetary policies, including policies, regulations, or new legal interpretations of existing regulations, relating to or affecting taxation, financing rates or exchange controls, or otherwise take actions which could have a material adverse effect on Tamweels business, financial condition, results of operations or prospects.

RISKS RELATING TO THE CERTIFICATES The Certificates may not be a suitable investment for all investors and the failure by an investor to understand their investment may result in losses Each potential investor in the Certificates must determine the suitability of that investment in light of its own circumstances. In particular, each potential investor should: have sufficient knowledge and experience to make a meaningful evaluation of the Certificates, the merits and risks of investing in the Certificates and the information contained in this Prospectus; have access to, and knowledge of, appropriate analytical tools to evaluate, in the context of its particular financial situation, an investment in the Certificates and the impact the Certificates will have on its overall investment portfolio; have sufficient financial resources and liquidity to bear all of the risks of an investment in the Certificates; understand thoroughly the terms of the Certificates and be familiar with the behaviour of any relevant financial markets; and be able to evaluate (either alone or with the help of a financial adviser) possible scenarios for economic and other factors that may affect its investment and its ability to bear the applicable risks.

The Certificates are complex financial instruments and such instruments may be purchased as a way to reduce risk or enhance yield with an understood, measured, appropriate addition of risk to their overall portfolios. A potential investor should not invest in the Certificates unless it has the expertise (either alone or with the help of a financial adviser) to evaluate how the Certificates will perform under changing conditions, the resulting effects on the value of such Certificates and the impact this investment will have on the potential investors overall investment portfolio. There can be no assurance that a secondary market for the Certificates will develop There can be no assurance that a secondary market for the Certificates will develop or, if a secondary market does develop, that it will provide the Certificateholders with liquidity of investment or that it will continue for the life of the Certificates. The market value of Certificates may fluctuate. Consequently, any sale of Certificates by Certificateholders in any secondary market which may develop may be at a discount from the original purchase price of such Certificates. Hence an investor in the Certificates must be prepared to hold the Certificates for an indefinite period of time or until their maturity. Application has been made for the Certificates to be listed on the primary exchange of the DIFX but there can be no assurance that such listing will occur on or prior to the Closing Date or at all. Credit Ratings may not reflect all risks One or more independent credit rating agencies may assign credit ratings to the Certificates. The ratings may not reflect the potential impact of all risks related to the transaction structure, the market, the additional factors discussed above or any other factors that may affect the value of the Certificates. A credit rating is not a recommendation to buy, sell or hold securities and may be revised or withdrawn by the rating agency at any time. Certain investors may be affected by provisions under the EC Savings Directive Under EC Council Directive 2003/48/EC on the taxation of savings income, each Member State is required to provide to the tax authorities of another Member State details of payments of interest (or similar income) paid by a person within its jurisdiction to an individual resident in that other Member State. However, for a transitional period, Belgium, Luxembourg and Austria are instead required (unless during that period they elect otherwise) to operate a withholding system in relation to such payments (the ending of such transitional period being dependent upon the conclusion of certain other agreements relating to information exchange with certain other counties). A number of non-EU countries and territories including Switzerland have adopted similar measures (a withholding system in the case of Switzerland) with effect from the same date.

If a payment were to be made or collected through a Member State which has opted for a withholding system and an amount of, or in respect of, tax were to be withheld from that payment, neither the Issuer nor any Paying Agent nor any other person would be obliged to pay additional amounts with respect to any Certificate as a result of the imposition of such withholding tax. If a withholding tax is imposed on payment made by a Paying Agent, the Issuer will be required to maintain a Paying Agent in a Member State that will not be obliged to withhold or deduct tax pursuant to the Directive. The Certificates may be redeemed prior to their Maturity Date In the event that the amount payable on the Certificates is required to include amounts or in certain circumstances the Service Agent is required pursuant to the Service Agency Agreement to pay amounts to the Trustee to ensure that the funds available to the Trustee are sufficient to pay the relevant Distribution Amount, in each case as a result of certain changes affecting taxation in the UAE or the Cayman Islands, or in each case any political subdivision or any authority thereof or therein having power to tax, the Trustee may redeem all but not some only of the Certificates upon giving notice in accordance with Condition 6.4. CERTAIN ADDITIONAL RISKS There is no assurance that the Certificates will be Sharia compliant Tamweels Fatwa & Sharia Supervisory Board, constituted by Dr. Hussain Hamid Hassan, Sheikh Dr. Mohammed Abdul Hakaim Zuair and Sheikh Mohammed Abdul Razak El Sedeiq, has confirmed that, in their view, the proposed issue of the Certificates and the related structure and mechanism described in the Transaction Documents are in compliance with Sharia principles. However, there can be no assurance as to the Sharia permissibility of the structure or the issue and the trading of the Certificates and none of the Issuer, Tamweel nor the Joint Lead Managers make any representation as to the same. Investors are reminded that, as with any Sharia views, differences in opinion are possible. Investors should obtain their own independent Sharia advice as to the Sharia permissibility of the structure and the issue and the trading of the Certificates. Consents to variation of Transaction Documents and other matters The Declaration of Trust contains provisions permitting the Delegate from time to time and at any time without any consent or sanction of the Certificateholders to make any modification to the Declaration of Trust and the Conditions of the Certificates if, in the opinion of the Delegate such modification (a) is of a formal, minor or technical nature, or (b) is made to correct a manifest error, or (c) is not materially prejudicial to the interests of Certificateholders. Unless the Delegate otherwise decides, any such modification shall as soon as practicable thereafter be notified to the Certificateholders and shall in any event be binding upon the Certificateholders. There can be no assurance as to the impact of a change in the laws governing the Certificates The Conditions and the Transaction Documents (other than the Purchase Agreement and the Istisna Agreement) are based on English law in effect as at the date of this Prospectus. No assurance can be given as to the impact of any possible judicial decision or change to English law after the date of this Prospectus, nor can any assurance be given as to whether any such change could adversely affect the ability of the Issuer to make payments under the Certificates. Reliance on Euroclear and Clearstream, Luxembourg procedures The Certificates will be represented on issue by a Global Certificate that will be deposited with a common depositary for Euroclear and Clearstream, Luxembourg. Except in the circumstances described in the Global Certificate, investors will not be entitled to receive Certificates in definitive form. Euroclear and Clearstream, Luxembourg will maintain records of the interests in the Global Certificate. While the Certificates are represented by the Global Certificate, investors will be able to trade their interests only through Euroclear and Clearstream, Luxembourg. While the Certificates are represented by the Global Certificate, the Issuer will discharge its payment obligation under the Certificates by making payments to the common depositary for Euroclear and Clearstream, Luxembourg for distribution to their account holders. A holder of an interest in the Global

Certificate must rely on the procedures of Euroclear and Clearstream, Luxembourg and, where applicable, such account holders to receive payments under the relevant Certificates. The Issuer has no responsibility or liability for the records relating to, or payments made in respect of, interests in the Global Certificate. Holders of interests in the Global Certificate will not have a direct right to vote in respect of the relevant Certificates. Instead, such holders will be permitted to act only to the extent that they are enabled by Euroclear and Clearstream, Luxembourg to appoint appropriate proxies. RISKS RELATING TO THE TRUST ASSETS AND THE PORTFOLIO ASSETS Liability attaching to owners of assets In order to comply with the requirements of Sharia, rights, title and interest in and to the Portfolio Assets will pass to the Issuer, in its capacity as trustee, under the Purchase Agreement and the Istisna Agreement. The Trustee will declare a trust in respect of its rights, title and interest in and to such Portfolio Assets and the other Trust Assets in favour of the Certificateholders pursuant to the Declaration of Trust. Accordingly, Certificateholders will have rights, title and interest in and to the Portfolio Assets unless transfer of such rights, title and interest is prohibited by, or ineffective under, any applicable law (see risk factor Transfer of the Portfolio Assets below). No investigation or enquiry will be made and no due diligence will be conducted in respect of any Portfolio Asset. Only limited representations will be obtained from Tamweel in respect of the Portfolio Assets. In particular, the precise terms of the Portfolio Assets or the nature of the assets sold will not be known (including whether there are any restrictions on transfer or any further obligations required to be performed by Tamweel to give effect to the transfer of the rights, title and interest in and to the Portfolio Assets). No steps will be taken to perfect any transfer of such rights, title and interest or otherwise give notice to any lessee or obligor in respect thereof. Obligors and lessees may have rights of set-off or counterclaim against Tamweel in respect of such Portfolio Assets. Transfer of the Portfolio Assets No investigation has been or will be made as to whether any interest in any Portfolio Assets may be transferred as a matter of the law governing the contracts, the law of the jurisdiction where such assets are located or any other relevant law. No investigation will be made to determine if the Purchase Agreement or the Istisna Agreement will have the effect of transferring an interest in the Portfolio Assets. Accordingly, no assurance is given that any rights, title and interest in and to the Portfolio Assets has been or will be transferred to the Trustee. Nevertheless, the Certificateholders will not have any rights of enforcement as against the Portfolio Assets and their rights are limited to enforcement against Tamweel of its obligation to purchase the Trustees rights, title and interest in and to the Portfolio Assets pursuant to the terms of the Purchase Undertaking. Accordingly, any such restriction on the ability of Tamweel to make a true sale of the rights, title and interest in and to the Portfolio Assets to the Trustee is likely to be of limited consequence to the rights of the Certificateholders. By way of further assurance, Tamweel shall expressly declare in the Purchase Undertaking that the Exercise Price represents a fair price for the Trustees rights, title and interest in and to the Portfolio Assets and that it irrevocably and unconditionally accepts all or any rights, title and interest the Trustee may have in and to the Portfolio Assets. If it breaches any such declaration or undertaking, or any administrator, liquidator or receiver of Tamweel disputes or challenges the rights, title and interest that the Trustee has in and to the Portfolio Assets, Tamweel shall fully indemnify the Trustee for the purpose of redemption, in UAE dirham, in full of the outstanding Certificates and, accordingly, the amount payable under any such indemnity claim will equal the Exercise Price. Furthermore, Tamweel shall agree in the Purchase Undertaking that, in the event that the transfer of the Trustees rights, title and interest in and to the Portfolio Assets is for any reason found to have been, or alleged to have been, ineffective so that the Trustee is unable to deliver such interest (or part thereof) to Tamweel in accordance with the terms of the Purchase Undertaking, Tamweel shall fully indemnify the Trustee for the purposes of redemption, in UAE dirham, in full of the outstanding Certificates and, accordingly, the amount payable under any such indemnity claim will equal the Exercise Price.

RISKS RELATING TO ENFORCEMENT UAE Bankruptcy Law In the event of Tamweels insolvency, UAE bankruptcy law may adversely affect Tamweels ability to perform under the Purchase Undertaking and the Service Agency Agreement and therefore the Trustees ability to make payments to Certificateholders. There is little precedent to predict how the claims on behalf of Certificateholders would be resolved in the case of any insolvency of Tamweel. Enforcement of Liabilities Ultimately the payments under the Certificates are dependent upon Tamweel making payments to the Trustee under the Service Agency Agreement, the Sale Undertaking and the Purchase Undertaking. If Tamweel fails to do so, it may be necessary to bring an action against Tamweel to enforce its obligations before the UAE courts which may be costly and time consuming. Enforcing foreign judgments in Dubai The Dubai courts are unlikely to enforce an English judgment without re-examining the merits of the claim and may not observe the choice by the parties of English law as the governing law of the relevant Transaction Documents. In addition, even if English law is accepted as the governing law, this will only be applied to the extent that it is compatible with the laws of the Emirate of Dubai and UAE law and public policy. This may mean that the Dubai courts may seek to interpret English law governed documents as if governed by UAE law and there can therefore be no certainty that in those circumstances the Dubai courts would give effect to such documents in the same manner as the parties may intend. Judicial precedent in the United Arab Emirates has no binding effect on subsequent decisions. In addition, there is no formal system of reporting court decisions in the United Arab Emirates. These factors create greater judicial uncertainty.

TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF THE CERTIFICATES The following is the text of the Terms and Conditions of the Certificates which (subject to completion and amendment and save for the text in italics) will be endorsed on each Certificate in definitive form (if issued) and will be attached and (subject to the provisions thereof) apply to the Global Certificate: Each of the AED 1,100,000,000 Trust Certificates due 2013 (the Certificates) represents an undivided ownership interest in the Trust Assets held on trust for the holders of such Certificates pursuant to a declaration of trust (as amended or supplemented from time to time, the Declaration of Trust) dated 21 July 2008 (the Closing Date) made between Tamweel Sukuk Limited (the Issuer and, in its capacity as trustee, the Trustee), Tamweel PJSC (Tamweel) and BNY Corporate Trustee Services Limited (the Delegate).

depositary for, Euroclear Bank S.A./N.V. and Clearstream Banking, socit anonyme. The Conditions are modified by certain provisions contained in the Global Certificate. Except in the limited circumstances described in the Global Certificate, owners of interests in Certificates represented by the Global Certificate will not be entitled to receive definitive Certificates in respect of their individual holdings of Certificates. The Certificates are not issuable in bearer form. 1.2 Title The Issuer will cause the Registrar to maintain the Register in respect of the Certificates in accordance with the provisions of the Agency Agreement. Title to the Certificates passes only by registration in the Register. The registered holder of any Certificate will (except as otherwise required by law) be treated as its absolute owner for all purposes (whether or not any payment thereon is overdue and regardless of any notice of ownership, trust or any interest or any writing on, or the theft or loss of, the Certificate issued in respect of it) and no person will be liable for so treating the holder of any Certificate. In these Conditions, Certificateholder and (in relation to a Certificate) holder have the definitions given thereto in the Declaration of Trust. 2 2.1 Transfers of Certificates and Issue of Certificates Transfers Subject to Conditions 2.4 and 2.5 and to the limitations as to transfer set out in the Agency Agreement, a Certificate may be transferred by depositing the certificate issued in respect of that Certificate, with the form of transfer duly completed and signed, at the specified office of any of the Transfer Agents. Transfers of interests in the Certificates represented by the Global Certificate will be effected in accordance with the rules of the relevant clearing systems. 2.2 Delivery of New Certificates Each new certificate to be issued upon transfer of Certificates will, within five business days of receipt by the relevant Transfer Agent of the duly completed form of transfer provided at the offices of the Transfer Agent, be mailed by uninsured mail at the risk of the holder entitled to the Certificate to the address specified in the form of transfer. Where some but not all of the face amount of the Certificates in respect of which a certificate is issued are to be transferred, a new certificate in respect of the face amount of the Certificates not so transferred will, within five business days of receipt by the relevant Transfer Agent of the original certificate, be mailed by uninsured mail at the risk of the holder of the face amount of the Certificates not so transferred to the address of such holder appearing on the Register or as specified in the form of transfer. Except in the limited circumstances described in the Global Certificate, owners of interests in the Certificates will not be entitled to receive physical delivery of Certificates. For the purposes of this Condition, business day shall mean a day on which banks are open for business in the city in which the specified office of the Registrar and the Transfer Agent with whom a certificate is deposited in connection with a transfer is located. 2.3 Formalities Free of Charge Registration of transfers of Certificates will be effected without charge by or on behalf of the Issuer or any Transfer Agent but upon payment (or the giving of such indemnity as the Issuer or any Transfer Agent may reasonably require) by the transferee in respect of any stamp duty, tax or other governmental charges which may be imposed in relation to such transfer. 2.4 Transfers after Transfer Record Date No Certificateholder may require the transfer of a Certificate to be registered (a) during the period of seven days ending on (and including) any Tax Redemption Date or Dissolution Redemption Date

or (b) during the period of seven days ending on (and including) any Periodic Distribution Date or, as the case may be, the Maturity Date. 2.5 Regulations All transfers of Certificates and entries on the Register will be made subject to the detailed regulations concerning transfer of Certificates scheduled to the Agency Agreement. The regulations may be changed by the Issuer from time to time with the prior written approval of the Registrar. A copy of the current regulations will be mailed (free of charge) by the Registrar to any Certificateholder who requests in writing a copy of the regulations. 3 3.1 Status and Limited Recourse Status Each Certificate evidences an undivided ownership interest in the Trust Assets and ranks pari passu, without any preference, with the other Certificates. 3.2 Limited Recourse Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained herein or in any Transaction Document, no payment of any amount whatsoever shall be made in respect of the Certificates by the Issuer or any agents thereof except to the extent that funds are available therefor from the Trust Assets. The Certificates do not represent an interest in any of the Issuer, the Obligor, the Trustee, the Delegate, the Agents or any of their respective affiliates. Certificateholders by subscribing for or acquiring the Certificates acknowledge that no recourse may be had for the payment of any amount owing in respect of the Certificates against the Obligor (to the extent that it fulfils all of its obligations under the relevant Transaction Documents to which it is a party), or any of the Issuer, the Trustee, the Delegate or the Agents to the extent the Trust Assets have been exhausted following which all obligations of the Issuer and the Trustee shall be extinguished. No recourse under any obligation, covenant or agreement contained in these Conditions shall be had against any shareholder, member, officer, agent or director of the Issuer or the Trustee, by the enforcement of any assessment or by any proceeding, by virtue of any statute or otherwise. The obligations of the Issuer under these Conditions are corporate limited liability obligations of the Issuer and no personal liability shall attach to or be incurred by the shareholders, members, officers, agents or directors of the Issuer save in the case of their wilful default or fraud. The net proceeds of the realisation of, or enforcement with respect to, the Trust Assets may not be sufficient to make all payments due in respect of the Certificates. If, following distribution of such proceeds, there remains a shortfall in payments due under the Certificates, no Certificateholder will have any claim against the Obligor (to the extent that each fulfils all of its obligations under the relevant Transaction Documents to which it is a party), or against any of the Issuer, the Trustee, the Delegate, the Agents or any of their affiliates or recourse to any of their assets in respect of such shortfall and any unsatisfied claims of Certificateholders shall be extinguished. In addition, no Certificateholder will be able to petition for, or join any other person in instituting proceedings for, the reorganisation, liquidation, winding up or receivership of the Obligor (to the extent that it fulfils all of its obligations under the relevant Transaction Documents to which it is a party), or any of the Issuer, the Trustee, the Delegate, the Agents or any of their affiliates as a consequence of such shortfall or otherwise. 4 4.1 Trust Summary of the Trust The Issuer will act as trustee for and on behalf of Certificateholders pursuant to the Declaration of Trust.

On the Closing Date, the Trustee will enter into an istisna agreement (the Istisna Agreement) with Tamweel, pursuant to which the Trustee will purchase (by way of istisna) Tamweels rights, title and interest in and to the Original Istisna Assets. Pursuant to the service agency agreement (the Service Agency Agreement) to be entered into on the Closing Date between the Trustee and Tamweel, in its capacity as Service Agent, the Service Agent shall provide certain services with respect to the Portfolio Assets, as more particularly described in the Service Agency Agreement. Pursuant to the purchase undertaking (the Purchase Undertaking) dated the Closing Date provided by Tamweel (in such capacity, the Obligor) in favour of the Trustee, the Obligor shall undertake to purchase all of the Trustees rights, title and interest in and to the Portfolio Assets at the Exercise Price on the Exercise Date following the issue of an Exercise Notice from the Trustee, which the Trustee shall deliver to the Obligor not less than three Business Days prior to any Dissolution Redemption Date (if any), or, provided that a Rating Downgrade Event has occurred, at any time between the Closing Date and the Maturity Date, or no later than 3 Business Days and no earlier than 30 Business Days prior to the Maturity Date, in each case, in the form set out in the Purchase Undertaking. On the Closing Date, the Trustee shall execute a sale undertaking (the Sale Undertaking) in favour of Tamweel. Pursuant to the Sale Undertaking, subject to a Tax Event occurring, Tamweel may, by exercising its option under the Sale Undertaking by delivering a Tax Event Exercise Notice to the Trustee by no earlier than 65, and no later than 45, days prior to the Tax Redemption Date, oblige the Trustee to sell all of its rights, title and interest in and to the Portfolio Assets on the Tax Redemption Date at the Exercise Price. In addition, Tamweel has the right to substitute any Portfolio Asset which is the subject of an istisna agreement, a forward lease agreement or an ijara contract with other assets, as more particularly described in the Sale Undertaking. Pursuant to the Declaration of Trust, the Issuer will declare a trust (the Trust) for the benefit of the Certificateholders over all of its rights, title, interest and benefit, present and future, in, to and under the Portfolio Assets and each of the Transaction Documents, all moneys which may now be, or hereafter from time to time are, standing to the credit of the Transaction Account and all proceeds (including insurance proceeds) of the foregoing (together, the Trust Assets). All payments by either the Service Agent or the Obligor to the Trustee for the Certificateholders under each Transaction Document to which it is party will be deposited into an account of the Trustee maintained for such purpose (the Transaction Account). 4.2 Application of Proceeds from Trust Assets Pursuant to the Declaration of Trust, the Trustee holds the Trust Assets for and on behalf of the Certificateholders. On each Periodic Distribution Date, or on a Redemption Date, the Trustee shall apply the moneys standing to the credit of the Transaction Account in the following order of priority: (a) first, to pay the Delegate an amount equal to any sum payable to it on account of its properly incurred fees, costs, charges and expenses and to pay or provide for the payment or satisfaction of any Liability incurred (or reasonably expected to be incurred) by the Delegate pursuant to the Declaration of Trust or in connection with any of the other Transaction Documents or these Conditions; second, only if payment is due on a Periodic Distribution Date, to the Principal Paying Agent for application in or towards payment pari passu and rateably of all Periodic Distribution Amounts due but unpaid; and third, only if such payment is due on a Redemption Date, to the Principal Paying Agent for application in or towards payment pari passu and rateably of the Redemption Amount. fourth, only if such payment is due on a Redemption Date, in payment of the surplus (if any) to the Issuer.

The Principal Paying Agent shall apply the moneys so received towards the payments set forth above. 5 5.1 Periodic Distributions Periodic Distribution Amounts and Periodic Distribution Dates A distribution amount, representing a defined share of the profit in respect of the Trust Assets derived from payments made to the Trustee under the Service Agency Agreement, will be payable on the Certificates and be distributed in accordance with these Conditions. Subject to Condition 3.2 and Condition 4.2, the distribution payable in respect of the Certificates for any Periodic Distribution Period shall be the Periodic Distribution Amount and will be made by the Issuer in respect of the Certificates in arrear on each Periodic Distribution Date in accordance with Condition 7. The Periodic Distribution Amount payable on any Periodic Distribution Date shall be distributed to each Certificateholder pro rata (in an amount calculated by multiplying the Periodic Distribution Amount by a fraction of which the numerator is the face amount of the relevant Certificateholders Certificates and the denominator is the Aggregate Face Amount on the relevant Periodic Distribution Date, and rounding the resultant figure to the nearest AED 0.01, AED 0.005 being rounded upwards). 5.2 EIBOR Determination EIBOR for each Periodic Distribution Period shall be determined by or on behalf of the Issuer in accordance with the following provisions: (a) on each EIBOR Determination Date, the Calculation Agent, on behalf of the Issuer, will determine the Screen Rate at approximately 1.00 p.m. (Dubai time) on such EIBOR Determination Date and such Screen Rate shall be the value of EIBOR for the forthcoming Periodic Distribution Period; if the Screen Rate is unavailable, the Calculation Agent shall request the principal Dubai or Abu Dhabi office of each Reference Bank to provide it with the rate at which deposits in UAE dirham are offered by it to prime banks in the UAE inter-bank market for a period of three months at approximately 1.00 p.m. (Dubai time) on such EIBOR Determination Date and, so long as at least two of the Reference Banks provide such rates, the arithmetic mean of such rates (rounded if necessary to the fourth decimal place, with 0.00005 being rounded upwards) as calculated by the Calculation Agent shall be the value of EIBOR for the forthcoming Periodic Distribution Period; if fewer than two rates are provided by the Reference Banks, the value of EIBOR for the forthcoming Periodic Distribution Period shall be the arithmetic mean of the rates quoted by major banks in Dubai or Abu Dhabi (as applicable), as selected by the Calculation Agent, at approximately 1.00 p.m. (Dubai time) on the first day of such Periodic Distribution Period for loans in UAE dirham to leading UAE banks for a period of six months commencing on the first day of such Periodic Distribution Period and for a an amount equal to the Aggregate Face Amount at the relevant time; and if EIBOR cannot be determined in accordance with the above provisions, the value of EIBOR for the forthcoming Periodic Distribution Period shall be as determined on the preceding EIBOR Determination Date.

(d)

Following determination of each of EIBOR and the Periodic Distribution Amount for the forthcoming Periodic Distribution Period and the related Periodic Distribution Date by the Calculation Agent, the Calculation Agent shall, if required to do so by the rules of the relevant stock exchange, notify, or shall procure the notification to, the stock exchange on which the Certificates are listed and/or traded at the relevant time, as soon as practicable after the determination thereof but in no event later than the first day of the relevant Periodic Distribution Period, details of such EIBOR and Periodic Distribution Amount. In addition, the Calculation Agent shall arrange for such EIBOR and Periodic Distribution Amount to be published in accordance with Condition 16 as soon as practicable after their determination but in no event later than the fourth Business Day thereafter.

24

Level: 5 From: 5 Wednesday, July 16, 2008 11:30 eprint3 3989 Section 04 : 3989 Section 04

Each Periodic Distribution Amount and Periodic Distribution Date may subsequently be amended (or appropriate alternative arrangements made by way of adjustment) without notice in the event of an extension or shortening of the related Periodic Distribution Period. In the event of any such amendment, the Calculation Agent shall, as soon as practicable thereafter, notify the stock exchange on which the Certificates are listed and/or traded at the relevant time of the amended Periodic Distribution Amount and Periodic Distribution Date, and shall arrange for such amended Periodic Distribution Amount and Periodic Distribution Date to be published in accordance with Condition 16 as soon as practicable after determination of such amendment but in no event later than the fourth Business Day thereafter. 5.3 Notifications etc. All notifications, opinions, determinations, certificates, calculations, quotations and decisions given, expressed, made or obtained for the purposes of this Condition 5 by the Calculation Agent on behalf of the Issuer will (in the absence of manifest error) be binding on the Issuer, the Trustee, the Delegate, the Obligor, the Agents and the Certificateholders. No liability to the Issuer, the Trustee, the Delegate, the Obligor, the Agents or the Certificateholders shall attach to the Calculation Agent in connection with the exercise or non-exercise by it of its powers, duties and discretions for such purposes. 5.4 Cessation of Accrual No further amounts will accrue or be payable on any Certificate from and including its due date for redemption. 6 6.1 Redemption Scheduled Redemption Unless previously redeemed, the Certificates shall be redeemed in full by the Issuer on the Maturity Date at the Redemption Amount as of such date, and the Trust shall be dissolved following such payment in full. The Redemption Amount shall be distributed on the Maturity Date pro rata amongst the Certificates. The Calculation Agent will calculate the amount payable in respect of any Certificate by multiplying the Redemption Amount by a fraction of which the numerator is the face amount of the relevant Certificate and the denominator is the Aggregate Face Amount on the Maturity Date and rounding the resultant figure to the nearest AED 0.01, AED 0.005 being rounded upwards. 6.2 Redemption following a Dissolution Event Following the occurrence of a Dissolution Event, the Certificates may, subject to Condition 10, be redeemed by the Issuer in full on the Dissolution Redemption Date at the Redemption Amount, and the Trust shall be dissolved following such payment in full. The Redemption Amount shall be distributed on any Dissolution Redemption Date pro rata amongst the Certificates. The Calculation Agent will calculate the amount payable in respect of any Certificate by multiplying the Redemption Amount by a fraction of which the numerator is the face amount of the relevant Certificate and the denominator is the Aggregate Face Amount on the Dissolution Redemption Date and rounding the resultant figure to the nearest AED 0.01, AED 0.005 being rounded upwards. 6.3 Redemption following a Rating Downgrade Event Following the occurrence of a Rating Downgrade Event, the Certificates may be redeemed by the Issuer in full on the Rating Downgrade Redemption Date (as defined below) at the Redemption Amount, and the Trust shall be dissolved following such payment in full, subject to the following: (a) the Issuer shall give notice of the occurrence of a Rating Downgrade Event to Tamweel, and to the Delegate and the Certificateholders in accordance with Condition 16 with a request to such Certificateholders to indicate if they wish the Trust to be dissolved, and

25

(b)

following the issuance of a notice pursuant to paragraph (a) above, and if so requested in writing by the holders of at least 50 per cent. in the Aggregate Face Amount, or if directed by an Extraordinary Resolution of the holders of the Certificates, the Delegate shall (subject in each case to being indemnified and/or secured to its satisfaction) give notice to the holders of the Certificates in accordance with Condition 16 that the Certificates are immediately due and payable at the Redemption Amount on the Rating Downgrade Redemption Date and that the Trust is to be dissolved on the day after the last outstanding Certificate has been paid in full.

The Redemption Amount shall be distributed on the Periodic Distribution Date specified in the notice served on Tamweel in accordance with the terms of the Purchase Undertaking (the Rating Downgrade Redemption Date) pro rata amongst the Certificates. The Calculation Agent will calculate the amount payable in respect of any Certificate by multiplying the Redemption Amount by a fraction of which the numerator is the face amount of the relevant Certificate and the denominator is the Aggregate Face Amount on the Rating Downgrade Redemption Date and rounding the resultant figure to the nearest AED 0.01, AED 0.005 being rounded upwards. 6.4 Redemption for Taxation Reasons (a) Tax Event Upon exercise by Tamweel of its option under the Sale Undertaking and the Issuer giving Certificateholders not less than 30 days and not more than 65 days notice prior to the Periodic Distribution Date specified in the notice (the Tax Redemption Date) given by the Issuer to the Certificateholders in accordance with Condition 16 (which notice shall be irrevocable), all, but not some only, of the Certificates will be redeemed in whole at the Redemption Amount if: (i) (1) the Issuer has or will become obliged to pay additional amounts pursuant to Condition 8 as a result of any change in, or amendment to, the laws or regulations of any Relevant Jurisdiction, or any change in the application or official interpretation of such laws or regulations (including a holding by a court of competent jurisdiction), which change or amendment becomes effective on or after 16 July 2008, and (2) such obligation cannot be avoided by the Issuer taking reasonable measures available to it; or the Service Agent has or will become obliged to pay amounts under the Service Agency Agreement to ensure that the funds available to the Trustee are sufficient to pay the relevant Periodic Distribution Amount as a result of any change in, or amendment to, the laws or regulations of any Relevant Jurisdiction, or any change in the application or official interpretation of such laws or regulations (including a holding by a court of competent jurisdiction), which change or amendment becomes effective on or after 16 July 2008,

(ii)

(each a Tax Event), provided that no such notice of redemption shall be given earlier than 30 days prior to the earliest date on which, in the case of Condition 6.4(a)(i), the Issuer would be obliged to pay such additional amounts were a payment in respect of the Certificates then due and, in the case of Condition 6.4(a)(ii), the Service Agent would be obliged to pay such amounts were a payment to the Trustee under the Service Agency Agreement then due. Prior to the publication of any notice of redemption pursuant to this paragraph, the Issuer shall deliver to the Delegate (x) a certificate signed by two directors of the Issuer (in the case of Condition 6.4(a)(i)) stating that the obligation referred to in (i) above cannot be avoided by the Issuer (having taken reasonable measures available to it) and (y) an opinion of independent legal or tax advisers of recognised international standing to the effect that such change or amendment has occurred (irrespective of whether such amendment or change is then effective) and the Delegate shall (without any investigation required of it) accept such certificate and opinion as sufficient evidence of the conditions set out in (i) and (ii) above without liability to any person in which event it shall be conclusive and binding on the Certificateholders.

Upon the Tax Redemption Date, the Issuer shall redeem the Certificates at the Redemption Amount, and the Trust shall be dissolved following such payment in full. (b) Redemption Amount The Redemption Amount payable on the Tax Redemption Date shall be distributed pro rata amongst the Certificates to be redeemed on the Tax Redemption Date. The Calculation Agent will calculate the amount payable in respect of any Certificate by multiplying the Redemption Amount by a fraction of which the numerator is the face amount of the relevant Certificate and the denominator is the Aggregate Face Amount, in each case on the Tax Redemption Date, and rounding the resultant figure to the nearest AED 0.01, AED 0.005 being rounded upwards. 6.5 Cancellation All Certificates which are redeemed in full will forthwith be cancelled and accordingly may not be held, reissued or sold. 7 7.1 Payments Payments in Respect of Certificates Subject to Condition 7.2, payment of any Redemption Amount will be made on the relevant due date for payment by the Principal Paying Agent by wire transfer in same day funds to the registered account of each Certificateholder or by a UAE dirham cheque drawn on a bank that processes payments in UAE dirham and mailed to the registered address of the Certificateholder if it does not have a registered account. Payments of any Redemption Amount due will only be made against surrender of the relevant Certificate at the specified office of any of the Paying Agents. Subject to Condition 7.2, payment of any Periodic Distribution Amount will be made on the relevant due date for payment by the Principal Paying Agent by wire transfer in same day funds to the Certificateholder shown on the Register at the close of business on the seventh day before the Periodic Distribution Date. Such payment will be made to the registered account of each Certificateholder or by a UAE dirham cheque drawn on a bank that processes payments in UAE dirham and mailed to the registered address of the Certificateholder if it does not have a registered account. For the purposes of this Condition, a Certificateholders registered account means the UAE dirham account maintained by or on behalf of it with a bank that processes payments in UAE dirham, details of which appear on the Register at the close of business on the second Business Day before the due date for payment and a Certificateholders registered address means its address appearing on the Register at that time. 7.2 Payments subject to applicable laws Payments in respect of Certificates are subject in all cases to any fiscal or other laws and regulations applicable in the place of payment, but without prejudice to the provisions of Condition 8. 7.3 Payment only on a Business Day Where payment is to be made by transfer to a registered account, payment instructions (for value the due date or, if that is not a Business Day, for value the first following day which is a Business Day) will be initiated and, where payment is to be made by cheque, the cheque will be mailed in each case by the Principal Paying Agent, on the date for payment or, if later, on the Business Day on which the relevant Certificate is surrendered at the specified office of a Paying Agent. Certificateholders will not be entitled to any Periodic Distribution Amount and/or Redemption Amount or other payment for any delay after the due date in receiving the amount due if the due date is not a Business Day, if the relevant Certificateholder is late in surrendering its Certificate (if required to do so) or if a cheque mailed in accordance with this Condition arrives after the due date for payment.

Agents The Issuer reserves the right at any time to vary or terminate the appointment of any Agent and to appoint additional or other Agents provided that it will ensure that it maintains a Paying Agent in a Member State of the European Union that will not be obliged to withhold or deduct tax pursuant to European Council Directive 2003/48/EC or any law implementing or complying with, or introduced in order to conform to, such Directive. Notice of any termination or appointment and of any changes in specified offices will be given to Certificateholders promptly by the Issuer in accordance with Condition 16.

7.5

Calculation Agent (a) Appointment The Issuer shall procure that so long as any of the Certificates remains outstanding there shall at all times be a Calculation Agent to undertake all necessary calculations and/or determinations required pursuant to the Conditions and the Transaction Documents for the purposes of calculating the relevant amounts due to be paid and/or delivered on the Certificates provided that the Issuer may terminate the appointment of such Calculation Agent in accordance with the provisions of the Agency Agreement. Unless otherwise specified, all such calculations shall be undertaken in respect of each AED 100,000 in face amount of Certificates. In the event of the appointed office of any bank being unable or unwilling to continue to act as the Calculation Agent or failing duly to determine the amount due to be paid or delivered on any Periodic Distribution Date or Redemption Date, the Issuer shall appoint the London office of another major bank engaged in the London interbank market to act in its place. If the Issuer shall fail, within a reasonable time, to appoint any such replacement, the Delegate shall be entitled (but not obliged) to make such appointment. The Calculation Agent may not resign its duties or be removed without a successor having been appointed. (b) Determinations binding Any determination or calculation made by the Calculation Agent shall (in the absence of manifest error) be final and binding on the Issuer, the Trustee, the Delegate, the Obligor, the Service Agent, the Certificateholders and the other Agents. The Calculation Agent may consult on any matter with any legal or other adviser selected by it and it shall not be liable in respect of anything done or omitted to be done relating to that matter in good faith in accordance with that advisers opinion.

Taxation All payments in respect of the Certificates shall be made in full without withholding or deduction for, or on account of, any present or future taxes, levies, duties, fees, assessments or other charges of whatever nature, imposed or levied by or on behalf of a Relevant Jurisdiction (Taxes), unless the withholding or deduction of such Taxes is required by law. In such event, the Issuer shall be required to pay additional amounts so that the full amount which otherwise would have been due and payable under the Certificates (if no such withholding or deduction had been made or required to be made) is received by the parties entitled thereto, except that no such additional amount shall be payable by the Issuer in relation to any payment in respect of any Certificate: (a) presented for payment (where presentation is required) by or on behalf of a holder who is liable for such Taxes in respect of such Certificate by reason of having some connection with any Relevant Jurisdiction other than the mere holding of such Certificate; or presented for payment (where presentation is required) more than 30 days after the due date for payment of the Redemption Amount except to the extent that a holder would have been entitled to additional amounts on presenting the same for payment on the last day of the period of 30 days assuming, whether or not such is in fact the case, that day to have been a Business Day; or

BUSINESS DESCRIPTION OF TAMWEEL PJSC

OVERVIEW Tamweel PJSC (Tamweel) is a leading provider of Sharia compliant residential property financing in the United Arab Emirates (UAE). Since opening for business in March 2004 it has become a leading residential property finance provider within the UAE with a market share estimated at approximately 35 per cent. (by value of financing granted) as at 31 December 2007. Tamweel provides Sharia compliant home financing solutions to real estate buyers in the UAE. Tamweel is organised into two major business segments: (i) Islamic financing and investing assets, which is its core residential property financing business; and (ii) investments in properties and property development. In addition, Tamweel has recently commenced an escrow management business. As at 31 March 2008, Tamweel had a market capitalisation of approximately AED 6.73 billion and its total assets were approximately AED 9.6 billion. As at 31 May 2008, the principal shareholders of Tamweel were Istithmar World PJSC (Istithmar) which held approximately 21.6 per cent. of the shares of Tamweel, Dubai Islamic Bank PJSC (DIB) which held approximately 19.9 per cent. and Dubai Investment Group LLC, the majority of the shares of which are indirectly held by Dubai Holding LLC, which held approximately 10.0 per cent. As the Government of Dubai indirectly holds all of the shares of Istithmar and currently holds approximately 30.0 per cent. of the shares of DIB, the Government of Dubai is Tamweels principal beneficial shareholder, holding an indirect shareholding of approximately 27.6 per cent. As at the date of this Prospectus, the authorised share capital of Tamweel is AED 1 billion divided into 1 billion ordinary shares of AED 1 each, all of which have been issued. Tamweel is currently licensed by the UAE Central Bank to operate as an Islamic finance company and is primarily engaged in Sharia compliant financing and investment activities. Accordingly, Tamweel is subject to UAE Central Bank regulations (including the Central Bank Board of Directors Resolution No.165/6/2004 issued on 6 December 2004 regarding the regulation of finance companies which operate in accordance with Sharia principles) as well as the laws of Dubai and the applicable federal laws of the UAE. Tamweel is in the process of expanding the geographic scope of its home financing services. In addition to diversifying into certain other Emirates in the UAE, Tamweel has a joint venture in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and is in the process of establishing operations through a wholly-owned subsidiary in Egypt and intends, over time, to offer its services in other countries in the Middle East and potentially the South East Asian regions. Tamweels registered head office is currently located at Business Avenue Building, Mezzanine Floor, P.O. Box 111555, Dubai, UAE and its telephone number is +971 4 294 4400. In addition to a branch located at its head office, Tamweel also has three other branch offices located in Abu Dhabi, Dubai and Sharjah. HISTORY Tamweel was established in Dubai, UAE, on 11 November 2000 as a limited liability company under the name of Emirates Finance Company LLC (EFC). From November 2002, DIB held 99.50 per cent. of the shares in EFC until mid-2003 when DIB and Istithmar, the investment arm of the Dubai World Group, entered into a joint venture arrangement. EFC was renamed Tamweel LLC. Tamweel LLC opened for business in March 2004. Until June 2006, DIB held 50 per cent. of the shares in Tamweel LLC and Istithmar held the remaining 50 per cent. In February 2006, Tamweel launched its initial public offering. In June 2006, Tamweel was converted into a public joint stock company in accordance with UAE Federal Law No (8) of 1984, as amended. In July 2006 its shares started trading on the Dubai Financial Market. RECENT DEVELOPMENTS The board of directors of Tamweel (the Board) has requested that senior management evaluate whether its existing corporate structure is the most appropriate model for its potential strategic expansion into new products and new markets. Both the Board and the shareholders of Tamweel have approved an amendment to permit Tamweel to be restructured as a holding company. Pursuant to these approvals,

42

Level: 5 From: 5 Wednesday, July 16, 2008 11:30 eprint3 3989 Section 05 : 3989 Section 05

Tamweel announced, on 1 June 2008, the establishment of Tamweel Properties & Investments LLC, a wholly-owned subsidiary which will focus on real estate investment and brokerage services. Tamweel Properties & Investments LLC has been established with a paid-up capital of AED 400 million. It is likely that some reorganisation of the current corporate structure may occur over the next two years and any such reorganisation will require the approval of the relevant regulatory authorities in the UAE. In terms of geographic expansion, during 2007, Tamweel entered into a joint venture agreement with Al Oula Real Estate Development, a leading Saudi Arabian property development company, with the aim of giving it access to the residential financing market in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. Tamweel believes that there is significant demand for housing in Saudi Arabia with an estimated average of 200,000 new units a year being required simply to cater to domestic demand and that this demand is constrained by a lack of available finance. Tamweel expects to commence business in Saudi Arabia before the end of 2008. Tamweel is also at an advanced stage of establishing business operations in Egypt through a wholly-owned subsidiary, Tamweel Egypt for Real Estate Finance SA (Tamweel Egypt). This company gained its commercial registration in January 2008, formally establishing it as a legal entity under Egyptian law. In February 2008, Tamweel Egypt was granted a mortgage finance licence by the Egyptian Mortgage Finance Authority. Tamweel Egypt expects to begin operations in July 2008. Tamweel Egypts authorised capital is EGP 500 million (approximately AED 333.4 million) with paid-up capital of EGP 100 million (approximately AED 66.7 million). The combination of a population in excess of 80 million and a lack of residential property financing makes Egypt an attractive market for Tamweel to provide its products and services. STRATEGY Tamweel is a leading provider of residential property financing in the UAE. Its strategy is to become the most admired leader in the financial industry regionally. Tamweels mission is to maximise shareholder value and become the home finance solutions provider of choice in the markets in which it operates. It aims to achieve its mission by securing a leading market share through product and service differentiation. Tamweel attributes the substantial growth in the residential finance market in the UAE and specifically in Dubai both before and since it commenced business in 2004 to, among other factors, advancements in the legal system (which includes a new property law in Dubai, see Escrow Management below), overall strong performance of the UAE economy, the continued influx of expatriates, in particular in Dubai, and a steady supply of quality infrastructure. Tamweel anticipates that these factors will continue to increase the demand for residential financing in Dubai in the short-to-medium term and also in Abu Dhabi in future years. Currently, approximately 90 per cent. of Tamweels outstanding residential financing relates to properties in Dubai and, in the short-term, Tamweels strategy is to consolidate its leading position in this growing market. The remaining 10 per cent. currently relates to properties in the other Emirates of the UAE, mainly, Abu Dhabi. Tamweel believes that its dedicated focus on residential property financing and its focus on providing Sharia compliant solutions are significant competitive strengths, see Strengths below. In particular, Tamweel aims to service the mid-value end-user market which it believes is more stable and less prone to fluctuation in demand than the high value segment where property speculation is more common. Tamweel aims to consolidate its leading position in Dubai in its chosen market segment through quality of service, leveraging its in-depth knowledge of the UAE real estate market and through product innovation. Tamweel aims to diversify away from its reliance on the residential property market in Dubai by expanding its activities in Abu Dhabi and, to a lesser extent, the other Emirates in coming years and through targeted international expansion. Tamweel believes that its expansion into international markets will be facilitated by the fact that certain of its key developer partners (such as Emaar Properties PJSC, Nakheel Co. LLC, Dubai Properties LLC, Sama Dubai LLC and Limitless LLC) are also expanding into such regions. Tamweel intends to position itself so as to capture the residential financing demand expected to flow from property developments in these regions. Tamweel has established a dedicated full time international expansion team which has been responsible for overseeing the ventures in both Saudi Arabia and Egypt. This team investigates and monitors a range of possible new markets for Tamweel to enter in the GCC and the wider Middle East and North Africa (MENA) and the South East Asian regions and it is possible that Tamweel may expand into other markets in these areas in 2009 or later.

Properties held for sale and property development Beyond its core business of residential property finance, Tamweel also seeks to exploit its knowledge and experience of the real estate market in its chosen territories. Although it has no current intention to act as a property developer, Tamweel seeks to take advantage of particular market opportunities as they arise. Recent examples include:

buying and re-selling real estate developments or properties for development, including its investments in International City, Discovery Garden, Al Jadaf, Surough, Jumeirah Village, Business Bay and Al Reef Downtown as described under Businesses Properties held for sale and property development. In these cases, Tamweel uses its balance sheet and aims to resell at a profit over the acquisition price; assisting developers with the sale of their developments both through Tamweels existing customer channels and through the provision of finance to potential buyers. This is a commission based business and Tamweel also earns income on any residential property financing granted by it; and acting an as escrow manager, see Businesses Escrow Management.

COMPETITION Tamweel believes that it is the only dedicated provider of Sharia compliant residential property financing in the UAE. Tamweels competitors in this business include both Islamic and conventional banks and other financial institutions operating in the UAE. There are currently at least 23 banks and financial institutions providing residential property finance in Dubai alone and such finance is provided on both an Islamic and conventional basis. In November 2007, Moodys Investors Service Inc. (Moodys) identified Tamweel as one of the two largest residential property financing institutions in the UAE (other than Amlak Finance PJSC (Amlak)). According to Moodys, the two largest institutions together account for approximately 60 to 65 per cent. of the total mortgage market in the UAE, with Tamweel accounting for approximately 35 per cent. of such market as at 30 June 2007. As of the date of this Prospectus, Tamweel estimates its market share remains around 35 per cent. Tamweel believes its major competitors in the provision of home financing include Amlak, Barclays Bank (UAE), Dubai Bank PJSC, Dubai Islamic Bank PJSC, HSBC Bank Middle East Limited, Mashreqbank psc, National Bank of Dubai PJSC, RakBank PJSC and Abu Dhabi Commercial Bank PJSC. STRENGTHS Tamweel is a dedicated residential property financing company. This is in contrast to Amlak which has a more diversified financing assets portfolio and to its principal bank competitors for whom real estate financing is just one of many types of financing product offered. Tamweels products are Sharia compliant, which allows it to capture both the conventional and Islamic home finance market. Customers who prefer Sharia compliant products are satisfied whilst customers who are not concerned with Sharia compliance are offered products and rates that are competitive with those offered by non-Islamic institutions. Tamweel believes that in the provision of financing to its customers its principal competitive strengths include:

the fact that it is a single product company with a focused strategy. Tamweels focus on the provision of residential property financing has given it an in depth knowledge of the real estate market in Dubai and the UAE which it believes the majority of its competitors, with their generally wider financing focus, are unable to match. This knowledge enables Tamweel to train its finance advisers to a high standard thereby leading to generally better quality advice and service being provided to its customers than that provided by the majority of its competitors. Tamweel believes that this is particularly important in a developing market where customer awareness is generally lower than in more developed markets; the fact that it is a Sharia compliant institution. Unlike its competitors providing only conventional financing, Tamweels products may be utilised by both Sharia conscious customers and those for whom Sharia compliance is not a relevant consideration. Tamweel believes that its product offering compares favourably both on quality of service and in pricing terms with those offered by its principal competitors; and

44

Level: 5 From: 5 Wednesday, July 16, 2008 11:30 eprint3 3989 Section 05 : 3989 Section 05

commitment to customer service, illustrated by a 48-hour application response time (the 48-hour Campaign). Tamweels 48-hour Campaign has been running successfully since its launch in January 2008. During the first three months of the 48-hour Campaign, Tamweel was able to process and turn around all applications within 48-hours. Tamweel believes that the 48-hour Campaign introduced a more consistent application processing, without adversely affecting the credit quality of the portfolio. The 48-hour Campaign has resulted in increased customer satisfaction.

In addition to the above significant competitive advantages, Tamweel believes that it also benefits from a strong brand value, the strong financial position and continued support of its founding shareholders, a sound corporate governance and risk management culture, excellent information technology systems and an experienced management team. BUSINESSES Islamic Financing and Investing Assets As at 31 December 2007, Tamweels Islamic financing and investing assets (essentially representing the home financing products provided by it) amounted to approximately AED 5.2 billion. Tamweel offers a number of financing options to meet the needs of a range of home buyers. Tamweels principal Sharia compliant home financing products are:

Home Builder (Istisnaa and forward Ijarah): these are finance products designed to enable customers to finance a property which is under construction. Either the customer or a property developer may manage the construction of the residence. Tamweel finances the construction of the residence on an instalment basis and repayment of such instalments commences once the construction is complete. The term of the financing can be up to 25 years in the case of a floating profit rate and 15 years in the case of a fixed profit rate; Flexible Rent-to-Own (Flexible Ijarah): these are leases whereby Tamweel purchases the property and leases it to the customer on a floating rate instalment basis. The customer makes monthly rental payments to Tamweel. The term of the financing can be up to 25 years. At the end of the lease, Tamweel transfers title in the property to the customer; Fixed Lease-to-Own (Fixed Ijarah): these are leases whereby Tamweel purchases the property and leases it to the customer on a fixed rate instalment basis. The customer makes monthly rental payments to Tamweel. The term of the financing can be up to 15 years. At the end of the lease, Tamweel transfers title in the property to the customer; Home Owner (Murabaha): these are sales contracts whereby Tamweel purchases the property under its name and subsequently resells it to the home buyer at an agreed profit rate on an instalment or deferred payment basis. The term of the financing does not exceed 15 years; Baiti: this is a product offered to UAE and GCC nationals only to finance the purchase of ready properties or the construction of new properties. This product is similar to the Istisnaa, forward Ijarah and Flexible Ijarah contracts and the financing period cannot exceed 25 years. Soyoula: this is a home refinancing product. Tamweel allows existing customers to unlock the equity value in their homes by refinancing up to 75 per cent. of the value of the home.

The majority of Tamweels customer financing is carried out through an Ijarah (or lease-based) finance product (including the Ijarah element of Istisnaa contracts) and Tamweels current emphasis is on the Flexible Ijarah. Tamweel has not entered into a significant number of fixed profit rate Ijarah contracts since early 2007 and, as illustrated in the table above, has not entered into a significant number of Murabaha contracts. Fixed profit rate products make up only a very small proportion of Tamweels financing products. Tamweel focuses on Ijarah financing products because the structure allows Tamweel to retain ownership of the property until the end of the financing term. Therefore, if there is a default, Tamweel would, as owner, be able to repossess the property. In an enforcement scenario, if the sale proceeds of the repossessed property do not satisfy the amounts due to Tamweel, the customer remains liable to Tamweel for any amount outstanding. If the sale proceeds exceed the amount due, Tamweel can, at its option, return the excess funds to the customer. Tamweel believes it has a well diversified profile of customers. As at 31 December 2007:

approximately 96 per cent. of Tamweels customers had monthly incomes between AED 5,000 to AED 500,000; approximately 73 per cent. of Tamweels customers were in the 25 to 45 age bracket; approximately 77 per cent. of Tamweels customers were salaried employees; on a weighted average basis, Tamweels customers, at the time of origination, had a debt/financing service ratio of less than or equal to 47 per cent.; and on a weighted average basis, financing provided by Tamweel had a finance to property value, at the time of origination, of 79 per cent.

As at 31 March 2008, the properties financed by Tamweel had valuations based on and as at the date of their valuation for financing purposes as follows: % of total portfolio 11112 Value of property financed AED 1 million or less AED 1 to 3 million AED 3 to 5 million AED 5 to 7 million More than AED 7 million 22.6 55.3 14.2 2.8 5.1

As at 31 December 2007, Tamweel estimates the regional origin of its customers to be as follows: Asia 29 per cent., Europe and North America 21 per cent., UAE and GCC 19 per cent., and others (principally the non-GCC MENA region) representing the remaining 31 per cent.

Origination Tamweel originates new business through: (i) corporate sales; (ii) real estate agent referrals; (iii) branch walk-ins and customer calls; and (iv) developer campaigns. Corporate sales As at 31 December 2007, approximately 50 per cent. of Tamweels outstanding residential property financing was attributable to corporate sales, which are sales made to employees of approved corporate entities. In general, Tamweel, through its direct sales force, approaches appropriate UAE-based companies which are screened into one of four categories based on parameters such as their financial strength, their stability, the number of their employees and the size of anticipated business that can be generated. These companies agree appropriate arrangement fee and profit rate discounts with Tamweel and in return notify their employees about the availability of these preferred arrangements with Tamweel. The size of the pricing discount depends upon the category of the company concerned, being either Platinum, Gold, Silver or Bronze. Typically, the preferred arrangements are limited to pricing matters with all of Tamweels standard origination criteria remaining as applicable to its corporate sales as to its other sales types. Real estate agent referrals As at 31 December 2007, approximately 22 per cent. of Tamweels outstanding residential property financing was sourced through real estate agent referrals. Tamweel estimates that its non-exclusive real estate agent referral network numbers over 70 agents. Periodically Tamweel conducts surveys of real estate brokers to keep track of market price trends.

Branch walk-in and customer calls As at 31 December 2007, approximately 19 per cent. of Tamweels outstanding residential property financing was attributable to the call centre and branch walk-ins. Tamweels participation in various marketing campaigns and exhibitions drives branch walk-ins and call centre origination. Tamweel has four branches, two of which are located in Dubai with the other two in Sharjah and Abu Dhabi. The call centre fields enquiries from potential customers through Tamweels toll-free phone number. Call centre agents discuss Tamweels product offering and approval amounts and details of potential customers are forwarded to appropriate advisers for follow-up. Developer campaigns As at 31 December 2007, approximately 9 per cent. of Tamweels outstanding residential property financing originated from developer campaigns. Tamweel partners with approved developers seeking financial solutions for potential home owners. Developers typically apply to Tamweel to become an approved developer. A developers application is first screened by the sales and business development unit and subsequently forwarded to the credit department which reviews the application based on the developers financial statements, project quality, business potential, expected clientele, market reputation and credit risk. Following internal approval, the developer is added to Tamweels approved list. Tamweel assists the approved developer in organising its sales campaign whereby potential customers can examine the project, choose their property and apply for a home financing product from Tamweel. Tamweel has over 50 approved developers and provides home financing to approximately 142 development projects. Underwriting Tamweels underwriting criteria is documented in an internal policy document known as the Product Program Guidelines. These guidelines are updated periodically, reviewed annually, and approved by the Chief Executive Officer and Chief Operating Officer. Underwriting authority requires a minimum of dual sign-off within a specified hierarchy of six levels, which includes the Executive Committee (level 1), the Chief Executive Officer (level 2), the Chief Operating Officer (level 3), the Head of Credit (level 4), Manager and Senior Manager Credit (level 5) and Assistant Manager Credit and Senior Credit Officer (level 6). Tamweel requires detailed documentation and proof of income in order to approve credit facilities. Customer repayment of the financing advanced is made by standing order or post-dated cheques (in the UAE failure to honour a cheque is a criminal offence). The geographical location of properties financed by Tamweel is currently limited to Dubai, Sharjah and Abu Dhabi, with the vast majority of these in Dubai. Tamweel has slightly different financing criteria for salaried and for self-employed customers. In order to qualify for home finance, a customer must be at least 21 years old and must not be older than 60 (in the case of salaried employees) or 65 (in the case of self-employed individuals). Tamweels policy requires that the customer has lived in the UAE for at least one year. Tamweel also requires income levels of at least AED 10,000 per month, although this limit was reduced to AED 5,000 per month on a single project. Salaried employees must have been employed for a minimum of six months and self-employed individuals must have maintained a viable business for a minimum of three consecutive years. The maximum debt service ratio permitted is typically 55 per cent. However, salaried individuals working for approved corporate entities and earning AED 35,000 per month or more may be eligible for a maximum debt service ratio of 65 per cent. This ratio is determined taking into account the individuals fixed financial obligations (excluding revolving credit card facilities and regular living expenses). Tamweels maximum permitted finance to value ratio for underwritten standard products is 85 per cent. From time to time, Tamweel may offer promotions permitting finance to value ratios of up to 95 per cent. This ratio is calculated at the time of origination. Independent property valuations are conducted by independent surveyors as part of the underwriting process. In addition, Tamweel periodically conducts a comprehensive analysis of the UAE property market in terms of per-square-foot pricing and sets maximum limits on property values. The finance to value ratio and applicable profit rate is a function of, among other things:

the customers profile (i.e. salaried versus self-employed); the type of property being financed (i.e. villa versus apartment); the number of outstanding mortgage obligations which the customer has; and

48

Level: 5 From: 5 Wednesday, July 16, 2008 11:30 eprint3 3989 Section 05 : 3989 Section 05

the property category (i.e. mid-market versus high-end property).

Tamweel establishes customer profiles through information provided on applications, supporting documents and reference checks. In the case of individuals, Tamweel collects a copy of an applicants passport, visa, a processing fee cheque, a liability letter from the customers bankers (or a credit bureau reference in the case of non-residents) and income documentation, including six months bank statements, and salary certificates/slips (in the case of salaried employees). In the case of self-employed individuals, Tamweel collects trade licenses, tax return documentation, relevant corporate documentation such as articles of association, three years audited financial statements, six months business and six months personal bank statements, a liability letter from the bank and a bankers reference letter for non-residents. Tamweel has established various levels of approval authority for its underwriters. Periodic reports and audits are conducted to monitor finance application acceptance and rejection rates. Tamweel continually reviews the way in which it conducts its origination business in order to ensure that it remains up-to-date and cost effective in the market place. Tamweel also monitors the reasons for declining home finance applications. On average, Tamweel processes approximately 330 home finance applications per month and its average historic acceptance level is approximately 94 per cent. Generally, half of all rejections result from customer inability to meet Tamweels debt servicing thresholds. Amongst other reasons, Tamweel declines applications as result of invalid documentation, inadequate customer profiles, and requests for finance in unapproved properties. Tamweel is in the process of introducing an automated underwriting scorecard system. The automated scorecard is intended to improve Tamweels ability to screen home finance applications. The automated scorecard has been running in parallel (and intended to continue to run in parallel) with Tamweels traditional underwriting approval system since the first quarter of 2007. The automated scorecard is expected to enhance the current system, by adding a further level of control, in the second quarter of 2008. The introduction of the automated scorecard system is also expected to assist in further improving Tamweels application turnaround time. Servicing Following approval of a home finance application, Tamweel establishes the relevant facility and disburses the funds. The customer makes repayments according to an agreed repayment schedule. At the end of the finance term, Tamweel transfers the title for ownership of the property into the name of the customer. Tamweel also offers pre-approved finance facilities for customers for certain finance amounts on approved properties. The pre-approval is subject to, among other things, a satisfactory credit review by Tamweel. Tamweel collects rental payments through either post-dated cheques or standing orders. Post-dated cheques and standing orders are drawn by the customer in favour of Tamweel at the start of each 24month periodic payment cycle during the term of the financing. Towards the end of each periodic payment cycle, customers are contacted to supply further cheques or renew their standing orders. In the case of leases, the amount of rental payments includes fixed rentals, variable rentals and, if applicable, life takaful (insurance). If the variable rental amount of a Flexible Ijarah changes during a 24-month periodic payment cycle, the post-dated cheques and standing orders that have already been collected within the current 24-month cycle are not amended. The difference accrues in a customer current account and is collected or, at the option of Tamweel, reimbursed over the next 24-month period. Tamweel charges a prepayment fee for early settlement of up to a maximum of 4 per cent. of the outstanding adjusted finance amount. Collection Procedures and Delinquent Accounts Tamweel attempts to reduce the possibility of customer default by initially assessing the customers profile, conducting black-list checks and verifying the applicants income. At the portfolio level, Tamweel attempts to minimise portfolio default exposure by limiting multiple property financings and capping single customer exposure to AED 7 million in accordance with the credit policy. Tamweel proactively manages default prevention by being selective in the assets it underwrites and remaining committed to maintaining a robust delinquency management system, as described below. During the first 30 days in which payment is required, Tamweel demands payment by contacting the customer by telephone, SMS text message or e-mail and informing the customer that a post-dated cheque

49

Level: 5 From: 5 Wednesday, July 16, 2008 11:30 eprint3 3989 Section 05 : 3989 Section 05

has not cleared or that a standing instruction order has not been honoured. During the next 30 days, Tamweel contacts the customer by telephone at the place of residence or employment and obtains a promise from the customer to pay within a certain time period. If collection remains outstanding, during the next 30 day period Tamweel increases the frequency of calls with a view to obtaining payment. After a payment has been in default for more than 90 days, Tamweel sends a letter to the customer requesting payment and attempts to make personal contact with the customer at the place of residence or employment. Tamweel continues to keep in contact with the customer by telephone. After 120 days, Tamweel sends a second letter to the customer requesting payment and after 150 days a legal notice is sent. Accounts remaining outstanding after 210 days would become subject to legal action and repossession procedures would be commenced. As at 31 March 2008, Tamweel did not have any payments in excess of 180 days overdue and less than 2 per cent. of its payments were overdue. Tamweel has not yet had to resort to repossession proceedings. If it were to do so, it anticipates that it would seek to sell the property in the open market through reputable real estate agents. For properties with an estimated value of over AED 2 million, Tamweels policy is to engage an independent valuation firm before the sale. If the proceeds of such sale were insufficient to cover the amounts outstanding, Tamweel would pursue the customer for the balance. To the extent litigation was required, Tamweel would engage external legal advisers in worthwhile cases. Provisions and write-offs Tamweel suspends profit rate accrual recognition of accounts which are 90 days overdue. Tamweel reviews its outstanding residential property financing periodically to determine whether or not any provision should be made in relation to specific non-performing assets and, although it does not have any, its policy in respect of accounts of 180 days, one year and two years overdue would be to write down net principal owing by 20 per cent., 50 per cent. and 100 per cent., respectively. Net principal owing is the principal owing, less the estimated fair market value of the property. Tamweel has not conducted a write-off since it was established. In addition, Tamweel may also make a collective provision against particular facilities provided which, although not identified as requiring a specific provision, have a greater risk of default than when originally granted. Funding Tamweels funding strategy is to secure diversified and stable sources of funding. To this end, in mid 2007 Tamweel launched its first securitisation of assets which not only provided funding but also removed assets from the balance sheet. Although Tamweels intention is to pursue further securitisation transactions in the future, Tamweel does not anticipate launching any such transactions until market conditions improve. Accordingly, Tamweel has continued to concentrate on increasing its corporate deposit base and on securing alternative longer-term sources of financing in the capital markets. At its Extraordinary General Meeting held on 7 April 2008, Tamweel gained approval to issue an aggregate amount of AED 5.1 billion in Sukuk. In 2007, Tamweel applied to the UAE Central Bank to obtain a banking licence. The application is currently pending and there is no certainty as to when or if it might be approved. Tamweel anticipates that, should it gain a banking licence, this will allow it to further diversify its funding sources as well as grow and diversify its depositor base.

The following table provides a breakdown of Tamweels funding (equity, corporate deposits and bank facilities) as at 31 December in each of 2005, 2006 and 2007: As at 31 December 1111111111111113 2007 2006 2005 (AED millions) Equity Corporate deposits Bank facilities Total non-equity funding Total funding Proceeds of securitisation 2,046 1,674 3,949 5,623 1111 7,669 1111 aaaa 667 1,820 670 467 1,137 1111 2,957 1111 aaaa 508 305 700 1,005 1111 1,513 1111 aaaa

Tamweels treasury activities are primarily used to source diversified funding as well as to manage liquidity. Tamweel produces standard asset and liability committee reports that are discussed by the Asset Liability Committee (ALCO) on a monthly basis. The reports cover short- and medium-term funding requirements and overall portfolio profitability and asset-liability tenor mismatches. The reports are regularly reviewed by management and the ALCO also discusses current industry affairs, international interest rates and key funding and liquidity initiatives in the context of the reports. As it does not currently have a banking license, Tamweel is not permitted to accept retail deposits although it is permitted to accept corporate investment deposits. As a result, it experiences concentration in depositors, with approximately 10 to 15 depositors at any given time. Certain of these deposits are from related parties with the majority of the balance being derived from Government of Dubai related entities. Although primarily short-term in contractual nature in line with standard practice in the UAE, the depositors have in fact been long-term depositors in practice and, accordingly, Tamweel believes that its depositor base is stable. Following its incorporation, Tamweel was initially primarily funded by equity, with the balance made up of short-term bank facilities. Since then, Tamweel worked on increasing the proportion of corporate investment deposits and more recently has sought to diversify its funding base both by securitising assets and therefore removing them from the balance sheet and, reflecting recent changes in international securitisation market conditions, by entering into longer-term borrowings of the type described below. As at 31 December 2007, corporate investment deposits constituted approximately 30 per cent. of Tamweels funding base. A maturity breakdown of Tamweels assets and liabilities as at 31 December 2007 is set out in Note 32 to Tamweels financial statements for 2007 included on pages F-12 to F-49 of this Prospectus. In July 2007, Tamweel closed its inaugural USD 210 million residential mortgage backed securitisation. The securitisation was structured according to Islamic principles. The Class A securities were rated Aa2 by Moodys and accounted for USD 177.45 million of the pool. The Class B and Class C securities were rated Baa1 and Ba3 by Moodys, respectively, and accounted for USD 15.33 million and USD 9.87 million of the pool, respectively. The Class D securities were not rated and accounted for USD 7.35 million. The Class A, Class B, Class C and Class D securities are all due in 2037 and have allowed Tamweel to better match funding sources to long-term assets. Tamweel intends, subject to market conditions, to undertake periodic securitisation transactions in order to source additional funding and remove risk from its balance sheet. In late 2007, Tamweel announced, that it had signed an AED 1.7 billion financing agreement with Emirates Islamic Bank PJSC. The facility is Sharia compliant and will be used to fund Tamweels growth. In January 2008, Tamweel closed its USD 300 million exchangeable Sukuk issue. The Sukuk was issued by Tamweel Funding Limited, an offshore special purpose vehicle. Issue proceeds were used for general funding and expansion. The fixed profit rate on the Sukuk is 4.31 per cent., payable quarterly in arrear. The convertible Sukuk has an exchange price of USD 2.2711 which, at the relevant time, represented a premium in excess of 30 per cent. over the then previous three month volume weighted average market price of Tamweel shares. The Sukuk is scheduled to mature in 2013. In April 2008, Tamweel raised USD 235 million through an Islamic syndicated facility.

Properties held for sale and property development As part of its strategy of exploiting its knowledge of the UAE real estate market in its chosen territories, Tamweel from time to time invests in completed or partially completed developments or development properties with a view to making a profit by re-selling the purchased properties in the short-term. Whenever an appropriate investment opportunity is identified, a business case is prepared and presented to Tamweels Investment Committee for consideration. An important part of the business case is the availability of purchasers and the expected timeframe within which the property can be fully re-sold. Once approved by the Investment Committee, Tamweel commits funds and makes the relevant investment. A list of the investments made by Tamweel and their book values at 31 March 2008 is set out below: Book Value at 31 March 2008 111112 (AED millions) Description of Property Al Jadaf land Al Reef downtown apartments Business Bay Discovery Garden apartments International City apartments Jumeirah Village villas Surouh Project villas Tamweel Tower Total Tamweel has made the following investments in properties and property development: Al Jadaf land Tamweel signed an agreement in August 2007 to form a strategic partnership with Bonyan International Investment Group LLC, a leading real estate developer based in Dubai, for the purchase of land in the Al Jadaf area of Dubai for consideration of approximately AED 1.93 billion. The acquisition included a total of 135 plots and significantly increased the properties under Tamweels management. The agreement was also signed by Sama Dubai LLC which is the international real estate investment and development arm of Dubai Holding LLC. Sama Dubai LLC will be responsible for the master planning of the area. As at 31 March 2008, Tamweel had sold approximately 67 of these plots. Al Reef downtown apartments In the last quarter of 2007, Tamweel purchased seven buildings in Abu Dhabi containing 259 apartments for an aggregate price of approximately AED 228 million. Tamweel sold some units in the first quarter of 2008 and is aiming to sell the balance of these apartments by the second quarter of 2008. Business Bay In the first quarter of 2007, Tamweel bought a plot of land in Business Bay, Dubai. Tamweel is planning to construct a building comprising of commercial and office space. Discovery Gardens apartments In late 2007, Tamweel purchased a building located in Discovery Gardens, Dubai for an aggregate price of approximately AED 42 million. This building is retained for future capital appreciation and projected to be sold in the second quarter of 2008. 964.60 205.90 114.20 42.20 6.00 14.20 66.80 10.40 111112 1,424.30 111112 aaaaas

International City apartments In the second quarter of 2006, Tamweel purchased seven buildings located in International City, Dubai at an aggregate price of approximately AED 135.8 million. By March 2007, Tamweel had sold all of the residential units within the buildings for an aggregate price of approximately AED 121 million. Tamweel retained some retail space in the buildings with a view to selling it in the future. All of Tamweels residential units in International City were financed by Tamweel. Jumeirah Village villas In 2007 Tamweel bought 40 villas in Jumeirah Village for approximately AED 50 million and had sold the majority of these villas by 31 March 2008. Sorouh Project villas In late 2006, Tamweel bought 136 villas in the Sorouh Project located in Abu Dhabi for approximately AED 438 million. Tamweel had sold almost 85 per cent. of these villas as of 31 March 2008. Tamweel Tower In the fourth quarter of 2004, Tamweel sold the residential units of the Tamweel Tower for approximately AED 240 million. The approximate cost of the Tamweel Tower, the development of which is expected to be completed in late 2008, is AED 170 million. Tamweel has retained four floors which make up the commercial units of Tamweel Tower. Escrow Management Under the recently promulgated Law No. 8 of 2008, property developers in Dubai must place project receivables in escrow until predetermined development milestones are achieved. These escrow accounts are regulated by the Real Estate Regulatory Agency, a newly created government entity operating under the ambit of the Dubai Land Department. Tamweel was the first real estate financier to be appointed as an official escrow manager. As a provider of escrow management services, Tamweel offers real estate developers guidance in successfully completing all relevant Dubai Land Department processes, including amongst others: (i) account opening and balance management services; (ii) management of information systems in relation to account receivables and payables; and (iii) making timely payments to all stakeholders. In addition, Tamweel provides developers with the option to outsource management of their receivables through Tamweels own collection management service department, which provides developers with the ability to register their buyer units and audit the cash flow of their projects. As a newly established business area, Tamweel does not expect to generate significant revenues from this business in 2008. RISK MANAGEMENT The principal risks faced by Tamweel in its business operations are credit risk, liquidity risk and profit rate risk. Tamweels risk management structure and a detailed analysis of these and certain other risks faced by Tamweel are described in Note 32 to Tamweels financial statements for 2007 included on pages F-12 to F-49 of this Prospectus. In addition, Tamweels credit policies and procedures are described above under Businesses Islamic Financing and Investment Assets Underwriting and its liquidity management is discussed above under Businesses Islamic Financing and Investment Assets Funding. INTERNAL CONTROLS Tamweels internal audit, risk management and compliance activities are undertaken by an audit and risk management department that functionally reports to the Audit and Risk Management Committee and administratively to the Chief Executive Officer. The Audit and Risk Management Committees activities are governed by the Audit and Risk Management Committee Charter (which is strategic in nature) and an Audit and Risk Management Charter (which is operational in nature). Risk management staff also adhere to the Islamic Financial Services Boards guidelines and publications. Members of the audit and risk

53

management department are permitted unrestricted access to all of Tamweels records (either manual or electronic), its assets, physical properties and personnel to the extent they are relevant to its engagement. The Audit and Risk Management Committee plays an active role in ensuring that senior management establishes and maintains effective internal controls, reviewing the effectiveness of the internal audit function and ensuring that appropriate controls are in place for monitoring compliance with laws, regulations and supervisory requirements. The audit and risk management functions encompass the examination and evaluation of the adequacy and effectiveness of Tamweels corporate governance, risk management processes and all other internal controls. The audit and risk management department deploys a range of risk management methodologies to help management identify, assess and mitigate Tamweels risk exposures. All internal audit, risk management and compliance activities are independent and have no operational responsibility or authority over activities under review. Risk management practices are supported by internal controls, including the proper segregation of duties, application of the maker-checker concept, end-of-day checking, daily reconciliations and timely reporting of delinquencies. Tamweel governs its internal audit by the Institute of Internal Auditors (USA) Code of Ethics, Standards for the Professional Practice of Internal Auditing and Statement of Responsibilities. Tamweel benchmarks its internal audit activities to the Institute of Internal Auditors Global Audit Information Network. Tamweel produces an annual internal audit plan and internal audit procedures covering its day-to-day operations. Internal audits are conducted using a risk based system to calculate the frequency of each audit. A report covering key risks is presented to the Board every two months. Two full internal audit reports are produced every month. Outstanding issues are allocated a resolution timeline and are reviewed by the Board on a monthly basis. In terms of compliance, Tamweel believes that it has a strong corporate governance structure, see Management Corporate Governance. Tamweel has established know your customer and anti-money laundering policies although, as it is not permitted to accept retail deposits and does not accept cash repayment of any facility granted by it, to a large extent it relies on the banks through whom such payments are made to carry out these checks. In addition, Tamweel screens all new customers against UAE central bank blacklists and OFAC and other relevant check lists. INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY Tamweel employs FLEXCUBE as its primary information technology (IT) system. The FLEXCUBE product is provided by I-flex Solutions Limited (I-flex), an IT solutions provider which is now part of the Oracle group of companies. FLEXCUBE has been customised for Islamic mortgage products and entails flexible product architecture to cover a range of fixed or floating profit rates, charges and amortisation structures. Management of the FLEXCUBE product is outsourced to I-flex. Tamweel continually reviews its IT systems, software and processes with a view to ensuring that they are up to date and can efficiently satisfy all its business needs. In this connection, Tamweel has partnered with ECS Limited (ECS) to enhance its business review services for its operations and sale cycles by implementing new software from ULTIMUS. The impetus behind this IT upgrade is to support application turnaround approval time (which is currently targeted to less than 48-hours) and improve overall management information systems across Tamweel. Tamweel has also engaged Gartner Consultancy Services to review and endorse its overall IT strategy, including the network and system architecture, with a view to optimising the IT platform and services offered. Tamweel used HP and CISCO when designing and implementing the system infrastructure and backup platforms. Tamweel intends to continue to review its information technology systems and platforms on an annual basis. Tamweels current information technology system provides daily data back-up to an offsite location in Sharjah. Tamweel intends to implement a backup information technology centre outside of the UAE to support its international expansion plans.

OVERVIEW OF THE EMIRATE OF DUBAI The information set forth in this section is based on publicly available information. Tamweel accepts responsibility for accurately reproducing such information and as far as Tamweel is aware no facts have been omitted which would render such information misleading, but Tamweel accepts no further responsibility in respect of such information. Such information may be approximations or use rounded numbers. Introduction The UAE is a federation of seven emirates made up of Abu Dhabi, Dubai, Sharjah, Ajman, Umm Al Quwain, Fujairah and Ras Al Khaimah. The UAE has one of the most liberal business environments in the Middle East focused around economic liberalisation and promoting the role of the private sector. There are currently no corporate taxes in most business sectors, other than oil producing companies and foreign banks, no personal taxes and no exchange controls on the remittance of profits or repatriation of capital. Additionally, the UAE enjoys low tariffs and there are virtually no restrictions on foreign trade. Legal System There are three primary sources or types of law in the UAE: federal laws and decrees, local laws and Sharia (Islamic law). The secondary source of law is trade custom or practice. In the absence of federal legislation on areas specifically reserved to federal authority, the ruler or local government of each emirate will apply his or its own rules, regulations and practices. As is its right under the Constitution, Dubai, like the emirates of Ras Al Khaimah and Abu Dhabi, has elected to maintain its own court system, separate from that of the federation, and the courts of Dubai have sole jurisdiction to hear cases brought in Dubai. Although both federal and Dubai courts have a similar three-tier structure (Court of First Instance, Court of Appeal and Court of Cassation/Supreme Court), Dubai has retained complete autonomy over its courts in all matters, including the appointment of judges. In accordance with the Constitution, however, the Dubai courts will first apply federal law where this exists and, in its absence, the laws of Dubai. The Emirate of Dubai Dubai is the second largest emirate in the UAE, and is situated on the west coast of the UAE in the southwestern part of the Arabian Gulf. It covers an area of 3,885 square kilometres and lies approximately at longitude 55 degrees east and latitude 25 degrees north. Except for a tiny enclave in the Hajar Mountains at Hatta, the emirate of Dubai comprises one contiguous block of territory. The population of Dubai was estimated at 1,422,000 in 2006 in the 2006 census. Approximately 75 per cent. of the population is estimated to be non-UAE nationals, mainly drawn from the Indian subcontinent, Europe and other Arab countries. Approximately 75 per cent. of the population is estimated to be male and 25 per cent. female, reflecting the large male expatriate workforce. History Dubai started as a pearl and fishing village sometime in the first half of the eighteenth century. From the 1850s until the formation of the UAE in 1971, the British were the dominant influence in the region, and each emirate entered into a separate treaty with Great Britain. The emirates were then collectively known as the Trucial States or Sheikhdoms and the area was generally known as the Trucial Coast. The Sheikhdoms were each led by a sheikh, who usually belonged to the most influential tribe in that area. During the nineteenth century, Dubai, split by a 14 kilometre long creek, which led into a natural harbour, established itself as a flourishing centre for the import and re-export of merchandise. Another important economic activity at that time was pearling. Offshore from Dubai, the waters were rich with pearl beds. However, the Great Depression of the 1930s and the emergence of artificial pearls in 1929 dented Dubais prosperity. To counter the loss of economic activity from the decline in pearling, Dubai encouraged traders from India and Iran to establish their business in Dubai. Traders, attracted by Dubais liberal policies, especially its lower

taxes on foreigners compared to its neighbours, made it their base and Dubai quickly established itself as a leading centre for trade in gold bullion, textiles and consumer durables. In the 1930s and 1940s, oil was discovered in Kuwait, Qatar and Saudi Arabia - adding to that already found in Bahrain, Iran and Iraq. In 1966, oil was first discovered by the Dubai Petroleum Company at Fateh, which lies 92 kilometres off the coast of Dubai. As the primary regional trading hub, Dubai was well placed to capitalise on the upturn in Middle East business activity that came with oil exports. The Economy of Dubai Dubais strategic position at the crossroads between the East and West has helped establish it as a leading trading and services hub between the Far East and Europe. Dubais economy has growing banking, tourism and real estate sectors. However, with only a fraction of the fossil fuel reserves of other emirates, it has gradually reduced its dependency on oil and gas revenues. The Government of Dubai continues to invest heavily in the infrastructure of the emirate and its economic development. Much of the infrastructure that has been created in recent years, both public and private, is aimed at reinforcing Dubais strategic position at the East-West crossroads. Dubai has focused on developing itself as a centre for tourism, trade and commerce in order to diversify its economy away from oil. The emirate has successfully pioneered the use of free zones to spur economic activity and attract companies to its shores. These free zones offer 100 per cent. ownership to nonnationals, and serve as an attractive location for companies seeking to serve the growing markets of the Middle East, South Asia and Central Asia. Some free zones currently operating in Dubai include the Jebel Ali Free Zone (JAFZ), the Dubai Technology and Media Free Zone (DTMF) (previously called the Technology Electronic Commerce and Media Free Zone) and the Dubai International Financial Centre (DIFC). The DIFC is a financial free zone, aimed at attracting international commercial banks, investment banks, insurance companies and other financial institutions. DTMF consists of Dubai Internet City, Dubai Media City and Knowledge Village and aims to attract global companies that serve the technology, media and training industry. DTMFs tenants include prestigious international and regional IT and media companies such as Microsoft, IBM, Reuters, CNN, CNBC, and MBC, among others. JAFZ was established in 1980 with the specific purpose of facilitating investment in manufacturing and distribution businesses. Other free zones include the Dubai Multi Commodities Centre, the Airport Free Zone and Dubai Healthcare City. Upcoming free zones include Dubai Logistics City, Dubai Aid City, Dubai Biotech FZ, and Dubai Silicon Oasis, in addition to a number of others. The Government of Dubai All powers of government in Dubai are vested in the Ruler. The various departments and other arms of the Government and their respective executives operate under the powers and responsibilities specifically delegated to them from time to time by the Ruler. Laws of Dubai are passed by Decree of the Ruler. The present Ruler is H.H. General Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum. In Dubai, there are various local governing bodies charged with regulating and administering local law and policy, including the Dubai Department of Economic Development, Dubai Municipality and the Department of Civil Aviation.

OVERVIEW OF THE PROPERTY AND HOME FINANCE MARKET IN DUBAI The information set forth in this section is based on publicly available information. Tamweel accepts responsibility for accurately reproducing such information and as far as Tamweel is aware no facts have been omitted which would render such information misleading, but Tamweel accepts no further responsibility in respect of such information. Such information may be approximations or use rounded numbers. Property Ownership Until recently, legal title in real property in Dubai could be owned only by UAE nationals and, under certain conditions, by other GCC nationals. Law No (7) of 2006 concerning Real Property Registration in Dubai (the Property Law) was passed in March 2006 and published in the official gazette in April 2006 and provides that the right to own real property in Dubai shall be restricted to UAE and GCC nationals and companies owned in full by them, as well as to public joint stock companies, however, non-UAE nationals may be granted the right to freehold ownership or usufruct/leasehold rights over real property for a period not exceeding 99 years, in designated areas of Dubai. These areas have been defined pursuant to Regulation No (3) of 2006 (the Designated Areas). Historically, outright ownership of real property in Dubai has either been classified as freehold ownership or gifted/granted land obtained pursuant to a gift or grant from the Ruler of Dubai. Land Registration Under the Property Law, purchased properties in Dubai are required to be registered in the name of the purchaser and in accordance with the Regulation No. 3 of 2006. In the case of properties purchased from developers, applications for registration may be submitted by the initial purchaser at the office of the developer of the development in which the relevant property is situated, and completed by the developer at the Dubai Land Department. As this registration requirement applies retroactively to prior sales of properties, property developers have been faced with significant backlogs, as has the Dubai Land Department as it processes registrations of prior sales. Housing Market The Dubai property market has registered record growth in recent years. According to Dubai Municipality, the total number of residential units almost doubled to just over 205,500 in the 10 years ended 2005. (Source: Dubai Residential Real Estate Report - MEED July 2007) The value of the land transactions in the local market (i.e. outside the freehold areas) has increased at an average rate of 42 per cent. a year over the past six years. Approximately AED 160,000 million worth of land deals were done in the period of 2001 to 2006 with approximately 40 per cent. of the total being carried out in 2006. Approximately 48 per cent. of transactions were financed by mortgages and a further 35 per cent. were outright purchases (Source: Dubai Residential Real Estate Report - MEED July 2007). During the last two years, the supply of new housing in Dubai has generally fallen short of demand mainly due to delays in completion of the announced projects. However, some major developments such as Jumeirah Lake Towers and Discovery Gardens are nearing completion and will add to the supply. The demand for residential and commercial real estate in Dubai has grown as a result of general economic and population growth in Dubai. Tamweel believes market demand will be sustained in the medium term due to delays in supply, growth in free zone employment, advances in real estate and business legislation and a tax friendly environment. According to the United Arab Emirates Yearbook 2007 (published with the assistance and support of the UAE Ministry for Presidential Affairs and the National Media Council), investment in real estate in Dubai in mid-2006 stood at AED 165 billion, up from AED 11 billion in 2000. Between 2000 and 2005 the number of residential buildings in Dubai increased by more than 42 per cent., to 79,000 buildings from 56,000. This compares with a modest growth in the number of residential buildings of 6.7 per cent in the previous five

year period. The number of residential units, meanwhile, surged 63 per cent over the five years to about 238,000 at the end of 2005. Prices on the primary market tripled between 2002 to 2007, with prices of two and three bedroom villas increasing from an average AED 474,000 and AED 705,000, respectively to AED 1.7 million and AED 2.5 million, respectively in 2006. Similarly prices of apartments also increased significantly. The prices of a studio and three bedroom units increased from AED 194,000 and AED 1.475 million, respectively to AED 650,000 and AED 2.7 million, respectively between 2002 and 2007. The average per square ft. prices increased from AED 331 to AED 764 for villas and AED 533 to AED 1050 for apartments from 2002 to 2007 (Source for pricing information: Tamweel). The Home Finance Market The UAE housing finance sector is in its initial stages with Tamweel and Amlak being the leading housing finance providers followed by a number of banks that have, until recently, not been aggressively involved in the sector. Driven by growth in the Dubai property market, the volume of facilities extended has almost quadrupled between the end of 2004, when it was AED 2.9 billion, to reach AED 11.3 billion in September 2006 (Source: EFG-Hermes Report on UAE Housing Finance, January 2007). During 2006, introduction of the Property Law, a change in the customer mix more towards long-term ownership and the launch of several projects targeted at low to middle income consumers led to significant increases in housing finance facilities. Tamweel believes the variable rate of return payable by customers under residential property financings has been relatively stable, falling within the range of 7.5 per cent. to 8.5 per cent. per annum. The main market-wide contributing factors for this have been pricing competition among financiers and the broad range of financing products offered by financiers (although some financiers have also benefited from a low cost of funds). Tamweel and Amlak jointly hold over half the market share in the housing finance market. The rest of the market is held by a number of local and foreign banks that offer home finance in the UAE, including HSBC, Standard Chartered Bank, Abu Dhabi Commercial Bank, Dubai Islamic Bank, Lloyds Bank TSB, Barclays, Mashreqbank and National Bank of Dubai.

TAXATION The following is a general description of certain tax considerations relating to the Certificates. It does not purport to be a complete analysis of all tax considerations relating to the Certificates. Prospective purchasers of Certificates should consult their tax advisers as to the consequences under the tax laws of the country of which they could be resident for any tax purposes and the tax laws of the UAE of acquiring, holding and disposing of Certificates and receiving payments of Redemption Amounts, Periodic Distribution Amounts and/or other amounts under the Certificates. This summary is based upon laws, decrees, rulings, administrative practice and judicial decisions as in effect on the date of this Prospectus and is subject to any change in law that may take effect after such date and which could have retroactive effect. UAE Taxation The following summary of the anticipated tax treatment in the UAE in relation to the payments on the Certificates is based on the taxation law and practice in force at the date of this Prospectus, and does not constitute legal or tax advice and prospective investors should be aware that the relevant fiscal rules and practice and their interpretation may change. Prospective investors should consult their own professional advisers on the implications of subscribing for, buying, holding, selling, redeeming or disposing of Certificates and the receipt of any payments in respect of any Distribution Amounts and distributions (whether or not on a winding-up) with respect to such Certificates under the laws of the jurisdictions in which they may be liable to taxation. There is currently in force in the Emirate of Dubai legislation establishing a general corporate taxation regime (the Dubai Income Tax Decree 1969 (as amended)). The regime is however not enforced save in respect of companies active in the hydrocarbon industry, some related service industries and branches of foreign banks operating in the United Arab Emirates. It is not known whether the legislation will or will not be enforced more generally or within other industry sectors in the future. Under current legislation, there is no requirement for withholding or deduction for or on account of UAE, or Dubai taxation in respect of payments of coupon or principal on debt securities (including of Periodic Distributions and Redemption Amounts due under the Certificates). The Constitution of the UAE specifically reserves to the Federal Government of the UAE the right to raise taxes on a federal basis for the purpose of funding its budget. It is not known whether this right will be exercised in the future. The UAE has entered into double taxation arrangements with a number of countries, but these are not extensive in number. Cayman Islands Taxation The Government of the Cayman Islands, will not, under existing legislation, impose any income, corporate or capital gains tax, estate duty, inheritance tax, gift tax or withholding tax upon the Issuer or the Certificateholders. The Cayman Islands are not party to any double taxation treaties. The Issuer has applied for and can expect to receive an undertaking from the Governor in Cabinet of the Cayman Islands that, in accordance with section 6 of the Tax Concessions Law (1999 Revision) of the Cayman Islands, for a period of 20 years from the date of the undertaking, no law which is enacted in the Cayman Islands imposing any tax to be levied on profits, income, gains or appreciations shall apply to the Issuer or its operations and, in addition, that no tax to be levied on profits, income, gains or appreciations or which is in the nature of estate duty or inheritance tax shall be payable (i) on the shares, debentures or other obligations of the Issuer or (ii) by way of the withholding in whole or in part of a payment of dividend or other distribution of income or capital by the Issuer to its members or a payment of principal or interest or other sums due under a debenture or other obligation of the Issuer. EU Directive on the Taxation of Savings Income Under EC Council Directive 2003/48/EC on the taxation of savings income, each Member State has been required, since 1 July 2005, to provide to the tax authorities of another Member State details of payments of interest (or similar income) paid by a person within its jurisdiction to, or collected by such a person for, an individual resident in that other Member State. However, Austria, Belgium and Luxembourg are required

74

Level: 5 From: 5 Wednesday, July 16, 2008 11:32 eprint3 3989 Section 07 : 3989 Section 07

instead to apply a withholding system for a transitional period in relation to such payments by deducting amounts on account of tax at rates rising over time to 35 per cent. This transitional period commenced on 1 July 2005 and terminates at the end of the first full fiscal year following agreement by certain non-EU countries and territories to the exchange of information relating to payments of interest. A number of nonEU countries and territories, including Switzerland, have agreed to adopt similar measures (a withholding system in the case of Switzerland) with effect from the same date. Therefore, payments of Periodic Distribution Amounts on the Certificates which are made or collected through Belgium, Luxembourg, Austria or any other relevant country may be subject to withholding tax which would prevent Certificateholders from receiving Periodic Distribution Amounts on their Certificate in full. The terms and conditions of the Certificates provide that, to the extent that it is possible to do so, a paying agent will be maintained by the Issuer in a Member State that is not required to withhold tax pursuant to the directive.

REPORT ON REVIEW OF INTERIM CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS TO THE BOARD OF DIRECTORS OF TAMWEEL PJSC

Introduction We have reviewed the accompanying interim condensed consolidated financial statements of Tamweel PJSC and its subsidiaries (the Group) as of 31 March 2008, comprising of the interim consolidated balance sheet as at 31 March 2008 and the related interim consolidated statements of income, changes in equity and cash flow for the three-month period then ended, and explanatory notes. Management is responsible for the preparation and presentation of these interim condensed consolidated financial statements in accordance with International Accounting Standard 34 Interim Financial Reporting (IAS 34). Our responsibility is to express a conclusion on these interim condensed consolidated financial statements based on our review. Scope of Review We conducted our review in accordance with International Standard on Review Engagements 2410 Review of Interim Financial Information Performed by the Independent Auditor of the Entity. A review of interim financial information consists of making inquiries, primarily of persons responsible for financial and accounting matters, and applying analytical and other review procedures. A review is substantially less in scope than an audit conducted in accordance with International Standards on Auditing and consequently does not enable us to obtain assurance that we would become aware of all significant matters that might be identified in an audit. Accordingly, we do not express an audit opinion. Conclusion Based on our review, nothing has come to our attention that causes us to believe that the accompanying interim condensed consolidated financial statements are not prepared, in all material respects, in accordance with IAS 34.

NOTES TO THE FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
At 31 December 2007
1 THE COMPANY AND ITS OPERATIONS

Tamweel PJSC (the Company) was registered on 3 June 2006 as a Public Joint Stock Company in accordance with UAE Federal Law No (8) of 1984, as amended. The share capital of the Company comprises 1,000,000,000 shares of AED 1 each. Previously, the Company was operating as Tamweel LLC with a paid up share capital of AED 450 million (450,000 shares of AED 1,000 each). The Company is licensed by the UAE Central Bank as a finance company and is primarily engaged in Islamic Shariaa compliant financing and investment activities such as Ijara, Forward Ijara, Murabaha, Istisnaa etc. The activities of the Company are conducted in accordance with Islamic Shariaa, which prohibits usury, and within the provisions of its Articles and Memorandum of Association. The Company is also engaged in the business of property development and trading. The head office of the Company is located at Business Avenue Building, P.O. Box 111555, Emirate of Dubai, UAE. The Company has one branch each in the Emirates of Dubai, Abu Dhabi and Sharjah.

STATEMENT OF COMPLIANCE

These financial statements have been prepared in accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS), the Shariaa rules and principles as determined by the Shariaa Supervisory Board (the Board) of the Company and applicable requirements of United Arab Emirates laws. Changes in accounting policies Adoption of IFRS in current year As of 1 January 2007, the Company adopted and applied the following new IASB standards and interpretations. Adoption of these standards and interpretations did not have any effect on the financial position of the Company. They did, however, give rise to the additional disclosures being included for the years ended 31 December 2007 and 31 December 2006. The principal effects of these changes are as follows: Amendments to IAS 1 Presentation of Financial Statements These amendments require the Company to make new disclosures enabling the users of financial statements to understand the Companys objectives, policies and processes for managing capital. The new disclosures as shown in Note 33. IFRS 7 Financial Instruments: Disclosures This standard requires disclosures that enable users of the financial statements to evaluate the significance of Companys financial instruments and the nature and extent of risks arising from those financial instruments. The new disclosures are primarily shown in Note 32. While there has been no effect to the financial position or results, comparative information has been revised where needed. IASB Standards and Interpretations issued but not adopted The Company has not adopted the new accounting standards or interpretations that have been issued but are not yet effective. These standards and interpretations except for revised IAS 1, are not likely to have any significant impact on the financial statements of the Company in the period of their initial application. The Company has not adopted the revised IAS 1 Presentation of Financial Statements which will be effective for the year ending 31 December 2009. The application of this standard will result in amendments to the presentation of the financial statements. The Company has not adopted the revised IAS 23 Borrowing costs which will be effective for the year ending 31 December 2009. The standard has been revised to require capitalisation of borrowing costs when such costs relate to a qualifying asset. A qualifying asset is an asset that necessarily takes a substantial period of time to get ready for its intended use or sale. In accordance with the transitional requirements in the standard, the Company will adopt this as a prospective change. Accordingly, borrowing costs will be capitalised on qualifying assets with a commencement date after 1 January 2009. No changes will be made for borrowing costs incurred to this date that have been expensed.

IFRS 8 Operating Segments The application of IFRS 8 which will be effective for the year ending 31 December 2009 will result in amended and additional disclosures relating to operating segments. 3 BASIS OF MEASUREMENT

The accompanying financial statements have been prepared under the historical cost convention as modified by the measurement at fair value of investment properties, trading and available for sale investments. The functional currency of the Company is UAE Dirhams (AED) and these financial statements have been presented in thousands of Dirhams. 4 DEFINITIONS OF SIGNIFICANT TERMS

The following terms are used in these financial statements with the meaning specified hereunder: Shariaa Shariaa is the body of Islamic law and is essentially derived from The Quran and The Sunnah. The Company, being an Islamic Financial Institution, incorporates the essence of Shariaa in its activities. Ijara Ijara is an agreement whereby the Company as a lessor buys an asset according to the customers request and then leases it to the customer as lessee for a specified rental over a specific period. The duration of the lease, as well as the basis for rental, are set and agreed in advance. The Company retains legal ownership of the asset throughout the arrangement. The arrangement could end by transferring the ownership of the asset to the lessee. Istisnaa Istisnaa is an agreement whereby the Company undertakes to construct a specific asset or property according to certain agreed upon specifications at a pre-determined price and for a fixed date of delivery. The work undertaken is not restricted to be accomplished by the Company alone and the whole or part of the construction can be undertaken by third parties under the Companys control and responsibility. Murabaha Murabaha is an agreement whereby the Company makes a sale to a customer of a commodity that is acquired principally based on a promise received from the customer to buy the item purchased according to the specific terms and conditions. While making the sale, the Company expressly mentions the costs incurred on the commodities that are sold and the profit thereon to the customer. Forward Ijara Forward Ijara is an arrangement whereby the Company agrees to provide, on a specified future date, certain described property on lease to the customer upon its completion and delivery by the developer, from whom the Company has purchased the property. The lease rent under Forward Ijara commences only upon the customer having received possession of the property from the Company. The arrangement could end by transferring the ownership of the asset to the lessee. Mudaraba Mudaraba is an agreement in which the customer contributes capital and the Company applies its effort. The proportionate share of profit is determined by mutual agreement. The loss, if any, unless caused by negligence or violation of the terms of the agreement, is borne only by the owner of the capital in which case the Company gets nothing for its efforts. The financier is known as rab-al-mal and the Company as mudareb. Wakala An agreement whereby the Company provides a certain sum of money to an agent, who invests it according to specific conditions in return for a certain fee (a lump sum of money or percentage of the amount invested). The agent is obliged to return the invested amount in case of default, negligence or violation of the terms and conditions of the Wakala.

5 SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES

The principal accounting policies adopted in preparing the financial statements are as follows: Revenue recognition Provided it is probable that the economic benefits will flow to the Company and the revenue and costs, if applicable, can be measured reliably, revenue is recognised in the income statement as follows: Ijara income Ijara income is recognised on a time-apportioned basis over the lease term based on the principal amount outstanding. Murabaha income Murabaha income is recognised on a time-apportioned basis over the period of the contract based on the principal amount outstanding. Istisnaa income Istisnaa associated profit margin (difference between the cash price of al-masnoo to the customer and the Companys total Istisnaa cost) is accounted for on a time- apportioned basis. Sale of properties held for sale Sale of properties held for sale is recognised on full accrual method as and when all of the following conditions are met: A sale is consummated and contracts are signed; The buyers investment, to the date of the financial statements is adequate to demonstrate a commitment to pay for the property; The Companys receivable is not subject to future subordination; The Company has transferred to the buyer the usual risks and rewards of ownership in a transaction that is in substance a sale and does not have a substantial continuing involvement with the property; and Work to be completed, if any, is both easily measurable and accrued or is not significant in relation to the overall value of the contract. Sale of development property Revenue on sale of development property is recognised on the basis of percentage of completion method as and when all of the following conditions are met: A sale is consummated and contracts are signed; The buyers investment, to the date of the financial statements, is adequate to demonstrate a commitment to pay for the property; Construction work has commenced, with engineering, design work and site clearance being completed; The buyer is committed. The buyer is not eligible for a refund except for non-delivery of the unit. Management believes that the likelihood of the Company being unable to fulfil its contractual obligations for these reasons is remote; and The aggregate sales proceeds and costs can be reasonably estimated. Processing fees Processing fees are recognised when applications for facilities are processed. Other income Income earned on deposits and wakala placements is recognised on a time proportion basis. All other income is recognised when the right to receive the income is established. Cost of sale of development property Cost of sale of development property includes the cost of land and development costs. Development costs include the cost of infrastructure and construction. The cost of sale in respect of individual properties is based on the estimated proportion of the development cost incurred to date to the estimated total development cost for the project.

5 SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES (continued)

Islamic financing and investing assets Islamic financing and investing assets include outstanding ijara principal rentals, murabaha sales receivables net of deferred profits, istisnaa costs incurred to date measured at cash equivalent value and forward Ijara at costs incurred to date. These assets are stated at cost net of provisions for impairment, if any. Investment properties Investment properties are measured initially at cost, including transaction costs. The carrying amount includes the cost of replacing part of an existing investment property at the time that cost is incurred if the recognition criteria are met; and excludes the costs of day-to-day servicing of an investment property. Subsequent to initial recognition, investment properties are stated at fair value, which reflects market conditions at the balance sheet date. Gains or losses arising from changes in the fair values of investment properties are included in the income statement in the year in which they arise. Investment properties are derecognised when either they have been disposed of or when the investment property is permanently withdrawn from use and no future economic benefit is expected from its disposal. Any gains or losses on the retirement or disposal of an investment property are recognised in the income statement in the year of retirement or disposal. Properties held for sale Properties held for sale are valued at the lower of cost and net realisable value. Cost is determined using the weighted average cost method. Cost comprises all costs of purchase and other directly attributable costs incurred in bringing each property to its location and condition. Net realisable value signifies the estimated selling price in the ordinary course of the business less estimated costs necessary to be incurred on disposal. Investments Trading investments These are initially recognised at cost and subsequently measured at fair value. All related realised and unrealised gains or losses are taken to income statement. Profit earned or dividends received are included in other income. Held to maturity Securities which have fixed or determinable payments and are intended to be held to maturity, are carried at amortised cost using the effective interest method, less provision for impairment in value, if any. Available -for-sale Available-for-sale investments are recognised and derecognised, on a trade date basis, when the Company becomes, or ceases to be, a party to the contractual provisions of the instrument. Investments designated as available-for-sale investments are initially recorded at cost and subsequently measured at fair value, unless this cannot be reliably measured. Changes in fair value are reported as a separate component of equity. Upon impairment any loss, or upon derecognition any gain or loss, previously reported as cumulative changes in fair value within equity is included in the income statement for the period. Property and equipment Property and equipment is stated at cost less accumulated depreciation and impairment in value, if any. Capital work-in progress is stated at cost and is not depreciated. Depreciation is calculated on a straight line basis over the estimated useful lives of such assets as follows: Leasehold improvements Office equipment Furniture and fixtures Software licenses and computer equipment Networks and servers 5 to 10 years 5 years 4 to 5 years 3 to 8 years 3 to 4 years

The carrying values of property and equipment are reviewed for impairment when events or changes in circumstances indicate the carrying value may not be recoverable. If any such indication exists and where the carrying values exceed the estimated recoverable amount, the assets are written down to their recoverable amount, being the higher of their fair value less costs to sell and their value in use.

5 SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES (continued)

Property and equipment (continued) Expenditure incurred to replace a component of an item of property and equipment that is accounted for separately is capitalised and the carrying amount of the component that is replaced is written off. Other subsequent expenditure is capitalised only when it increases future economic benefits of the related item of property and equipment. All other expenditure is recognised in the income statement as the expense is incurred. Financial instruments The Company recognises financial assets or financial liabilities only when the Company becomes a party to the contractual provisions of a financial instrument. On initial recognition, the financial assets and financial liabilities are measured at fair value plus, in case of a financial asset or financial liability not at fair value through profit or loss, transaction costs that are directly attributable to the acquisition or issue of the financial asset or financial liability. Subsequent to initial measurement, the financial assets are measured at fair value except for loans and receivables which are measured at amortised cost. Financial liabilities, after initial recognition, are measured at amortised cost. Derecognition of financial assets and financial liabilities Financial assets A financial asset (or, where applicable a part of a financial asset or part of a group of similar financial assets) is derecognised where: (a) (b) the right to receive cash flows from the asset have expired; or the Company has transferred its rights to receive cash flows from the asset or has assumed an obligation to pay the received cash flows in full without material delay to a third party under a pass-through arrangement; and either (a) the Company has transferred substantially all the risks and rewards of the asset, or (b) the Company has neither transferred nor retained substantially all the risks and rewards of the asset, but has transferred control of the asset.

(c)

When the Company has transferred its rights to receive cash flows from an asset or has entered into a pass-through arrangement, and has neither transferred nor retained substantially all the risks and rewards of the asset nor transferred control of the asset, the asset is recognised to the extent of the Companys continuing involvement in the asset. A financial liability is derecognised when the obligation under the liability is discharged or cancelled or expires. Securitisation The Company enters into securitisation transactions to finance specific loans and advances to customers. Both the debt securities in issue and the loans and advances to customers remain on the Companys balance sheet within the appropriate balance sheet headings unless: i) ii) iii) a fully proportional share of all or of specifically identified cash flows have been transferred to the holders of the debt securities, in which case that proportion of the assets are derecognised; substantially all the risks and rewards associated with the assets have been transferred, in which case the assets are fully derecognised; or if a significant proportion of the risks and rewards have been transferred, the assets are recognised only to the extent of the Companys continuing involvement.

Zakat Zakat is computed as per the Companys Articles and Memorandum of Association and is approved by the Companys Shariaa Supervisory Board on the following basis: Zakat on shareholders equity is computed as the aggregate of general and legal reserves, provision for doubtful debt, retained earnings and provision for staff gratuity as multiplied by 2.577%. Zakat is disbursed by a committee appointed by the Board of Directors and operating as per the by-law set by the Board. Zakat on the paid up capital is not included in the zakat computations and is payable by the shareholders personally.

Accounts payable and accruals Liabilities are recognised for amounts to be paid in the future for goods or services received, whether billed by the supplier or not. Provisions Provisions are recognised when the Company has a present obligation (legal or constructive) arising from a past event and the costs to settle the obligation are both probable and able to be reliably measured. Employees end-of-service benefits For its national employees, the Company makes contributions to the pension fund established by the General Pension and Social Security Authority calculated as a percentage of the employees salaries. The Companys obligations are limited to these contributions, which are recognised in the income statement when due. The Company provides end-of-service benefits to its expatriate employees. The entitlement to these benefits is based upon the employees salary and length of service, subject to the completion of a minimum service period. The expected costs of these benefits are accrued over the term of employment. Employees benefit plan shares Employees benefit plan shares consist of the Companys own shares that have been designated under Employee Stock Ownership Plan and not yet reissued or cancelled. These shares are accounted for using the cost method. Under the cost method, the average cost of the shares is shown as a deduction from total shareholders equity. Share-based payments The cost of equity-settled transactions with employees is measured by reference to the fair value at the date at which the awards are granted. The cost of equity-settled transactions with employees is recognised, together with a corresponding increase in equity, over the period in which the performance conditions are fulfilled ending on the date on which the employees become fully entitled to the award (vesting date). The cumulative expense recognised for equity-settled transactions at each reporting date until the vesting date reflects the extent to which the vesting period has expired and the Companys best estimate of the number of equity instruments that will ultimately vest. The income statement charge or credit for a period represents the movement in cumulative expense recognised as at the beginning and end of that period. Foreign currencies Transactions in foreign currencies are recorded at rates of exchange prevailing at the dates of the transactions. Trade and settlement date accounting All regular way purchases and sales of financial assets are recognised on the trade date, i.e. the date that the Company commits to purchase or sell the asset. Fair values For investments actively traded in organised financial markets, fair value is determined by reference to quoted market prices at the close of business on the balance sheet date. Bid prices are used for assets and offer prices are used for liabilities. For unquoted securities fair value is determined by reference to brokers' quotes, recent transaction(s), the market value of similar securities, or based on the expected cash flows discounted at current rates applicable for items with similar terms and risk characteristics. For investments in properties, fair value is determined periodically on the basis of independent professional valuations. Offsetting Financial assets and financial liabilities are only offset and the net amount reported in the balance sheet when there is a legally enforceable right to offset the recognised amounts and the Company intends to settle on a net basis. Significant management judgements and estimates Judgements In the process of applying the Companys accounting policies, management has made the following judgements, apart from those involving estimations, which may have an effect on amounts recognised in the financial statements.

5 SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES (continued)

Transfer of equitable interest in properties The Company has entered into a number of contracts with buyers for the sale of property units. Management has determined that equitable interest in such assets, and therefore risks and rewards of ownership, are transferred to the buyer once he is committed to complete the payment for the purchase. The commitment is evidenced by a signed contract for the purchase of the property and payments of sufficient progressive payments. The risk of the buyer being able to rescind the contract for the reasons stated in the contract which are dependent on the enactment of pending legislation is considered by management to be remote. Classification of investments Management decides on acquisition of an investment whether it should be classified as held to maturity, carried at fair value through profit or loss, loans and receivables or available-for-sale. For those investments deemed held to maturity, management ensures that the requirements of IAS 39 are met and, in particular that the Company has the intention and ability to hold these to maturity. The Company classifies investments as trading if they are acquired primarily for the purpose of making a short term profit by the dealers. All other investments are classified as a available-for-sale. Use of estimates The preparation of the financial statements requires management to make estimates and assumptions that may affect the reported amount of financial assets and liabilities, revenues, expenses, disclosure of contingent liabilities and the resultant provisions. Such estimates are necessarily based on assumptions about several factors and actual results may differ from reported amounts as described below: Impairment losses on Islamic financing and investing assets The Company reviews its Islamic financing and investing assets on a regular basis to assess whether a provision for impairment should be recorded in the income statement in relation to any non-performing assets. In particular, judgement by management is required in the estimation of the amount and timing of future cash flows when determining the level of provisions required. Such estimates are necessarily based on assumptions about the probability of default and probable losses in the event of default, the value of the underlying security, and realization costs. Collective impairment provisions on Islamic financing and investing assets In addition to specific provisions against individually significant Islamic financing and investing assets, the Company also makes collective impairment provisions against facilities which, although not specifically identified as requiring a specific provision, have a greater risk of default than when originally granted. The amount of the provision is based on the historical loss pattern for facilities within each grade and is adjusted to reflect current economic changes. Cost to complete properties under development The Company estimates the cost to complete properties under development in order to determine the cost attributable to revenue being recognised. These estimates include the cost of providing infrastructure activities, potential claims by sub contractors and all cost of meeting other contractual obligations to the customers. Valuation of investment properties The Company hires the service of third party values for obtaining estimates of the valuation of investment properties.

NOTES TO THE FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

25 EMPLOYEES' BENEFIT PLAN

On 26 February 2006, the Company established an Employee benefit plan to recognise and retain good performing key employees. The Plan gives the employee the right to purchase the Companys shares at an exercise price. In accordance with an agreement between the shareholders of Tamweel LLC and the Company, the shareholders of Tamweel LLC agreed to transfer 18,000 shares of AED 1,000 each (equivalent to 18,000,000 shares of AED 1 each after the share split on conversion of the LLC into a PJSC) of the Company owned by them for the benefit of the Companys employees under this plan. These shares are held by two trustee companies. The cost of acquisition of these shares was AED 18 million at the rate of AED 1,000 per share of a nominal value of AED 1,000 each. Out of the above shares, the Company granted 6,900 shares of AED 1,000 each (equivalent to 6,900,000 shares of AED 1 each after the share split on conversion of the LLC into a PJSC) during 2006 at AED 1,015 per share (AED 1.015 per share on split). These shares carry full dividend and voting rights. The fair value of these shares at the grant date was estimated at AED 7,003,500 at AED 1,015 per share (AED 1.015 per share on split). During the year, the Company granted 1,934,000 shares at AED 1.015 per share which vest over a period of 36 months.

RISK MANAGEMENT

Risk is inherent in the Companys activities but it is managed through a process of ongoing identification, measurement, mitigation and monitoring subject to risk limits and other controls. This process of risk management is critical to the Companys continuing profitability and sustainability. The Company is exposed to credit risk, liquidity risk and market risk, the latter being subdivided into trading and non-trading risks. It is also subject to operational risks. The independent risk control process does not include business risks such as changes in the environment, technology and industry. They are monitored through the Companys strategic planning process. The major risks to which the Company is exposed in conducting its business and operations, and the means and organisational structure it employs in seeking to manage them strategically in its attempt to build stakeholders value are outlined below. Risk Management Structure Ultimate responsibility and accountability for the Companys risk management rests with the Board of Directors. The level of risk that the Company accepts, together with the basis for managing those risks, is driven from the top down by those charged with overall responsibility for running the business. However, separate independent bodies are entrusted with delegated risk management responsibilities. The Board of Directors is responsible for the overall risk management approach and for designing and deciding the risk strategies, policies, appetite parameters, and principles.

32 RISK MANAGEMENT (continued)

Credit Risk Credit risk is the risk that a customer or counterparty will fail to meet a commitment, resulting in financial loss to the Company. Such risk stems mainly from day to day Islamic financing activities undertaken by the Company. Credit risk is actively monitored in accordance with the credit policies which clearly define delegated lending authorities, credit standards and procedures. The Company attempts to control credit risk by monitoring credit exposures, maintaining credit limits, limiting transactions with specific counterparties and continually assessing the creditworthiness of counterparties. The Company has built and maintains a sound credit portfolio within the guidelines of the Board approved Credit Policy. The Company has an established risk management process encompassing of credit approvals, control of exposures, credit policy direction to business units, well-designed credit appraisals, review of exposures both on an individual and a portfolio basis, and incorporation of robust problem credit management procedures. Special attention is directed towards the management of past-due financing assets through a dedicated Collection Team. The Company enters in collateral arrangements with counterparties in appropriate circumstances to limit credit exposure. With a relatively dominant Ijara financing structure, the ownership of the financed property is maintained with the Company until the full-settlement of the monies due; thus, resulting in collateralization of amounts financed. QUANTITATIVE INFORMATION Maximum exposure to credit risk without taking account of any collateral and other credit enhancements The table below shows the maximum exposure to credit risk for the components of the balance sheet.

This facilitates focused management of the applicable risks and the comparison of credit exposures across all lines of business, geographic regions and products. The rating system is supported by a variety of financial analytics, combined with processed market information to provide the main inputs for the measurement of counterparty risk. All internal risk ratings are tailored to the various categories and are derived in accordance with the Companys rating policy. The attributable risk ratings are assessed and updated regularly.

Collateral and other credit enhancements The finance provided by the Company is completely asset backed in accordance with the principles of Shariah. Properties are funded based on Companys Appraised Value. In the case of new properties, the appraised value is similar to the developers per square footage rate further assessed by independent valuation and internal assessment. However, in some cases the Company might have lower rates than the developers based on the Companys view of the property. In case of older properties the appraised value is released by the Credit Department. These valuations are based on the valuation report from valuers, whenever required and the property prices witnessed in Tamweels past funding transactions. Property insurance is mandatory and the property is insured against all normal risks for the value stated in the sale agreement, or the valuation amount given by the surveyor, as the case maybe. The insured value is maintained at the original property value through the life of the finance. Profit rate risk Profit rate risk arises from the possibility that changes in profit rates will affect future profitability or the fair values of financial instruments. In the Companys financial statements, mainly two line items can lead to such exposure i.e. Islamic financing assets and financing obligations, as shown on the assets and liability sides respectively. The profit rate risk for the Company is minimal in the short term period. The profit rate for financing assets is a composition of EIBOR and internal spread which cannot be expected to fluctuate frequently based on EIBOR movement. The Company reviews the profit rate on a monthly basis during its ALCO meeting and, if required, recommends rate change based on market conditions and competition. The financing obligations, being short term, are contractually variable rate contracts as determined on contract initiation. The following table demonstrates the sensitivity to a reasonable possible change in profit rates, with all other variables held constant, of the Companys income statement. The sensitivity of the income statement is the effect of the assumed changes in profit rates on the net profit earned for one year, based on the floating rate non-trading financial assets and financial liabilities held at 31 December 2007. 2007 Increase/ Sensitivity (decrease) of in basis net returns points AED 000s 50bps (50bps)

Currency risk Currency risk is the risk that the value of a financial instrument will fluctuate due to changes in foreign exchange rates. All assets and liabilities as on 31 December 2007 are denominated in the UAE Dirham and therefore the Company is not exposed to any significant currency risk. Equity price risk Equity price risk is the risk that the fair values of equities decrease as the result of changes in the levels of equity indices and the value of individual stocks. The non-trading equity price risk exposure arises from the Companys investment portfolio. The effect on equity (as a result of a change in the fair value of equity instruments held as available-for-sale at 31 December 2007) due to a reasonably possible change in equity indices, with all other variables held constant, is as follows: Market indices Change in equity price 2007 Effect on equity AED000 4,620 (4,620) 2006 Change in equity price Effect on equity AED000 1,294 (1,294)

Prepayment risk Prepayment risk is the risk that the Company will incur a financial loss because its counterparties repay earlier or later than expected. The Company does not have any significant prepayments risk as the amount recovered in case of early settlement is more than the fair value of the asset on settlement date, by adding a settlement fees, and to recover amount on time and to avoid any delays. The collection team, supervised by Credit committee monitors the customer receivable position on a daily basis. Operational risk Operational risk is the risk of loss arising from systems failure, human error, fraud or external events. When controls fail to perform, operational risks can cause damage to reputation, have legal or regulatory implications, or lead to financial loss. The Company cannot expect to eliminate all operational risks, but through a control framework and by monitoring and responding to potential risks, the Company is able to manage the risks. Controls include effective segregation of duties, access, authorisation and reconciliation procedures, staff education and assessment processes, including the use of internal audit.

This responsibility includes: designing, implementing and maintaining internal control relevant to the preparation and fair presentation of financial statements that are free from material misstatement, whether due to fraud or error; selecting and applying appropriate accounting policies; and making accounting estimates that are reasonable in the circumstances. Auditors Responsibility Our responsibility is to express an opinion on these financial statements based on our audit. We conducted our audit in accordance with International Standards on Auditing. Those standards require that we comply with ethical requirements and plan and perform the audit to obtain reasonable assurance whether the financial statements are free from material misstatement. An audit involves performing procedures to obtain audit evidence about the amounts and disclosures in the financial statements. The procedures selected depend on the auditors judgment, including the assessment of the risks of material misstatement of the financial statements, whether due to fraud or error. In making those risk assessments, the auditor considers internal control relevant to the entitys preparation and fair presentation of the financial statements in order to design audit procedures that are appropriate in the circumstances, but not for the purpose of expressing an opinion on the effectiveness of the entitys internal control. An audit also includes evaluating the appropriateness of accounting policies used and the reasonableness of accounting estimates made by management, as well as evaluating the overall presentation of the financial statements. We believe that the audit evidence we have obtained is sufficient and appropriate to provide a basis for our audit opinion.

NOTES TO THE FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
At 31 December 2006
1 THE COMPANY AND ITS OPERATIONS

Tamweel PJSC (the Company) was registered on 3 June 2006 as a Public Joint Stock Company in accordance with UAE Federal Law No (8) of 1984, as amended. The share capital of the Company comprises 1,000,000,000 shares of AED 1 each. Previously, the Company was operating as Tamweel LLC with a paid up share capital of AED 450 million (450,000 shares of AED 1,000 each). The Company is licensed by the UAE Central Bank as a finance company and is primarily engaged in Islamic Shariaa compliant financing and investment activities such as Ijara, Murabaha, Istisnaa etc. The activities of the Company are conducted in accordance with Islamic Shariaa, which prohibits usury, and within the provisions of its Articles and Memorandum of Association. The Company is also engaged in the business of property development. The head office of the Company is located at Business Avenue Building, Emirate of Dubai, UAE. The Company has one branch each in Emirates of Dubai, Abu Dhabi and Sharjah.

STATEMENT OF COMPLIANCE

These financial statements have been prepared in accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS), the Shariaa rules and principles as determined by the Shariaa Supervisory Board (the Board) of the Company and applicable requirements of United Arab Emirates laws. The accounting policies are consistent with those used in the previous years except the Company has reconsidered the classification of its investments in the light of the new requirements in IAS 39 which became mandatory for financial years beginning on or after 1 January 2006 relating to classification of financial assets at fair value through profit or loss. Accordingly, investments are now carried at fair value through profit or loss only when permitted by paragraph 11A of IAS 39, or when doing so results in more relevant information. Consequently, investments at fair value through profit or loss have been re-designated as available-for-sale investments at 1 January 2006 and included under Investments at their fair value of AED 1,030,000. Available-for-sale investments are carried at fair values, unless this cannot be reliably measured. Changes in fair value are reported as a separate component of equity. On de-recognition or impairment, the cumulative gain or loss previously reported in equity is included in the income statement for the period. Had the policy not been changed, the current year profit would have been higher by AED 207,619.

BASIS OF MEASUREMENT

The accompanying financial statements have been prepared under the historical cost convention as modified by the measurement at fair value of investment properties and other investments. The functional currency of the Company is UAE Dirhams (AED) and these financial statements have been presented in thousands of Dirhams.

DEFINITIONS OF SIGNIFICANT TERMS

The following terms are used in these financial statements with the meaning specified hereunder: Shariaa Shariaa is the body of Islamic law and is essentially derived from The Quran and The Sunnah. The Company, being an Islamic Financial Institution, incorporates the essence of Shariaa in its activities.

The duration of the lease, as well as the basis for rental, are set and agreed in advance. The Company retains ownership of the asset throughout the arrangement. The arrangement could end by transferring the ownership of the asset to the lessee. Istisnaa Istisnaa is an agreement whereby the Company undertakes to construct a specific asset or property according to certain agreed upon specifications at a pre-determined price and for a fixed date of delivery. The work undertaken is not restricted to be accomplished by the Company alone and the whole or part of the construction can be undertaken by third parties under the Companys control and responsibility. Murabaha Murabaha is an agreement whereby the Company makes a sale to a customer of a commodity that is acquired principally based on a promise received from the customer to buy the item purchased according to the specific terms and conditions. While making the sale, the Company expressly mentions the costs incurred on the commodities that are sold and the profit thereon to the customer. Mudaraba Mudaraba is an agreement in which the customer contributes capital and the Company applies its effort. The proportionate share of profit is determined by mutual agreement. The loss, if any, unless caused by negligence or violation of the terms of the agreement, is borne only by the owner of the capital in which case the Company gets nothing for its efforts. The financier is known as rab-al-mal and the Company as mudareb.

5 SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES - continued

Revenue recognition - continued Sale of development property Revenue on sale of development property is recognised on the basis of percentage completion as and when all of the following conditions are met: A sale is consummated and contracts are signed; The buyers investment, to the date of the financial statements, is adequate to demonstrate a commitment to pay for the property; Construction work has commenced, with engineering, design work and site clearance being completed; The buyer is committed. The buyer is not eligible for a refund except for non-delivery of the unit. Management believes that the likelihood of the Company being unable to fulfill its contractual obligations for these reasons is remote; and The aggregate sales proceeds and costs can be reasonably estimated. Ijara income Ijara income is recognised on a time-apportioned basis over the lease term based on the principal amounts outstanding. Murabaha income Murabaha income is recognised on a time-apportioned basis over the period of the contract based on the principal amounts outstanding. Istisnaa income Istisnaa associated profit margin (difference between the cash price of al-masnoo to the customer and the Companys total Istisnaa cost) is accounted for on a time- apportioned basis. Processing fees Processing fees are recognised when applications for facilities are received. Cost of sale of development property Cost of sale of development property includes the cost of land and development costs. Development costs include the cost of infrastructure and construction. The cost of sale in respect of individual properties is based on the estimated proportion of the development cost incurred to date to the estimated total development cost for the project. Cash and cash equivalents Cash and cash equivalents comprise cash in hand, cash with banks and short-term deposits with an original maturity of three months or less. Islamic financing and investing assets Islamic financing and investing assets include outstanding ijara rentals, murabaha sales receivables net of deferred profits and istisnaa costs incurred to date measured at cash equivalent value. Ijara and murabaha assets are stated at cost net of provisions for impairment, if any. Investment properties Investment properties are measured initially at cost, including transaction costs. The carrying amount includes the cost of replacing part of an existing investment property at the time that cost is incurred if the recognition criteria are met; and excludes the costs of day-to-day servicing of an investment property. Subsequent to initial recognition, investment properties are stated at fair value, which reflects market conditions at the balance sheet date. Gains or losses arising from changes in the fair values of investment properties are included in the income statement in the year in which they arise. Investment properties are derecognised when either they have been disposed of or when the investment property is permanently withdrawn from use and no future economic benefit is expected from its disposal. Any gains or losses on the retirement or disposal of an investment property are recognised in the income statement in the year of retirement or disposal.

Properties held for sale Properties held for sale are valued at the lower of cost and net realisable value. Cost is determined using the weighted average cost method. Cost comprises all costs of purchase and other directly attributable costs incurred in bringing each property to its location and condition. Net realisable value signifies the estimated selling price in the ordinary course of the business less estimated costs necessary to be incurred on disposal. Investments Held for trading These are initially recognised at cost and subsequently remeasured at fair value. All related realised and unrealised gains or losses are taken to the income statement. Profit earned or dividends received are included in other income. Available -for-sale These are initially recognised at cost, being the fair value of the consideration given including directly attributable transaction costs. After initial recognition, investments which are classified as available-for-sale are normally remeasured at fair value, unless fair value cannot be reliably determined in which case they are measured at cost less impairment. Fair value changes which are not part of an effective hedging relationship, are reported as a separate component of equity until the investment is derecognised or the investment is determined to be impaired. On derecognition or impairment the cumulative gain or loss previously reported as cumulative changes in fair value within equity, is included in the income statement for the period. Fair values For investments actively traded in organised financial markets, fair value is determined by reference to quoted market prices at the close of business on the balance sheet date. Bid prices are used for assets and offer prices are used for liabilities. For unquoted investments, a reasonable estimate of the fair value is determined by reference to the market value of a similar investment or is based on acceptable valuation techniques. For investments in properties, fair value is determined periodically on the basis of independent professional valuations. Property and equipment Property and equipment is stated at cost less accumulated depreciation and any impairment in value, if any. Capital work-in progress is not depreciated. The carrying values of property and equipments are reviewed for impairment when events or changes in circumstances indicate the carrying value may not be recoverable. If any such indication exists and where the carrying values exceed the estimated recoverable amount, the assets are written down to their recoverable amount. Depreciation is calculated on a straight line basis over the estimated useful lives of the assets as follows: Leasehold improvements Office equipment Furniture and fixtures Software licenses and computer equipments Networks and servers 5 to 10 years 5 years 5 years 3 to 8 years 4 years

Expenditure incurred to replace a component of an item of property and equipment that is accounted for separately is capitalised and the carrying amount of the component that is replaced is written off. Other subsequent expenditure is capitalised only when it increases future economic benefits of the related item of property and equipment. All other expenditure is recognised in the income statement as the expense is incurred.

Impairment of financial instruments An assessment is made at each balance sheet date to determine whether there is objective evidence that a specific financial asset may be impaired. If such evidence exists, any impairment loss, is recognised in the income statement. Impairment is determined as follows: (a) for assets carried at fair value, impairment is the difference between cost and fair value. (b) for assets carried at cost, impairment is present value of future cash flows discounted at the current market rate of return for a similar financial asset. For available-for-sale equity investments, reversal of impairment losses are recorded as increases in cumulative changes in fair value through equity. In addition, a provision is made to cover impairment for specific groups of assets where there is a measurable decrease in estimated future cash flows. Zakat Zakat is computed as per the Companys Articles and Memorandum of Association and is approved by the Companys Shariaa Supervisory Board on the following basis: Zakat on shareholders equity is computed as the aggregate of general and legal reserves, provision for doubtful debt, retained earnings and provision for staff gratuity as multiplied by 2.577%. Zakat is disbursed by a committee appointed by the Board of Directors and operating as per the bye-law set by the Board. Zakat on the paid up capital is not included in the zakat computations and is payable by the shareholders personally. Accounts payable and accruals Liabilities are recognised for amounts to be paid in the future for goods or services received, whether billed by the supplier or not. Provisions Provisions are recognised when the Company has a present obligation (legal or constructive) arising from a past event and the costs to settle the obligation are both probable and able to be reliably measured. Employees end-of-service benefits For its national employees, the Company makes contributions to the pension fund established by the General Pension and Social Security Authority calculated as a percentage of the employees salaries The Companys obligations are limited to these contributions, which are recognised in the income statement when due. The Company provides end-of-service benefits to its expatriate employees. The entitlement to these benefits is based upon the employees salary and length of service, subject to the completion of a minimum service period. The expected costs of these benefits are accrued over the year of employment. Foreign currencies Transactions in foreign currencies are recorded at rates of exchange prevailing at the dates of the transactions. Monetary assets and liabilities denominated in foreign currencies at the balance sheet date are reported at the exchange rates prevailing at that date. Any gain or loss arising from changes in exchange rates subsequent to the date of a transaction is recognized in the income statement in the period in which they arise.

Significant management judgements and estimates Judgements In the process of applying the Companys accounting policies, management has made the following judgements, apart from those involving estimations, which may have an effect on amounts recognised in the financial statements. Transfer of equitable interest in properties The Company has entered into a number of contracts with buyers for the sale of apartment units. The Management has determined that equitable interest in such assets and therefore risks and rewards of the ownership are transferred to the buyer once he is committed to complete the payment for the purchase. The commitment is evidenced by a signed contract for the purchase of the property and payments of sufficient progressive payments. The risk of the buyer being able to rescind the contract for the reasons stated in the contract which are dependent on the enactment of pending legislation is considered by management to be remote. Classification of investments Management decides upon acquisition of an investment whether it should be classified as held to maturity, held for trading, carried at fair value through income statement or available for sale. For those investments deemed held to maturity, management ensures that the requirements of IAS 39 are met and, in particular, that the Company has intention and ability to hold these to maturity. The Company classifies investments as trading if they are acquired primarily for the purpose of making a short term profit. All other investments are classified as a available for sale. Use of estimates The preparation of the financial statements requires management to make estimates and assumptions that may affect the reported amount of financial assets and liabilities, revenues, expenses, disclosure of contingent liabilities and the resultant provisions and fair value for the year. Such estimates are necessarily based on assumptions about several factors and actual results may differ from reported amounts as described below: Impairment losses on Islamic financing and investing assets The company reviews its Islamic financing and investing assets on a regular basis to assess whether a provision for impairment should be recorded in the income statement in relation to any non-performing assets. In particular, judgement by management is required in the estimation of the amount and timing of future cash flows when determining the level of provisions required. Such estimates are necessarily based on assumptions about the probability of default and probable losses in the event of default, the value of the underlying security, and realisation costs. Cost to complete properties under development The Company estimates the cost to complete properties under development in order to determine the cost attributable to revenue being recognised. These estimates include the cost of providing infrastructure activities, potential claims by sub contractors and all costs of meeting other contractual obligations to the customers. Valuation of investment properties The Company hires the service of third party valuers for obtaining estimates of the valuation of investment properties.

EMPLOYEES' BENEFIT PLAN

On 26 February 2006, the Company established an employees benefit plan (Plan) to recognise and retain good performing key employees. The Plan gives the employee the right to purchase the Companys shares at an exercise price. In accordance with an agreement between the shareholders of Tamweel LLC and the Company, the shareholders of Tamweel LLC agreed to transfer 18,000 shares of AED 1,000 each (equivalent to 18,000,000 shares of AED 1 each after the share split on conversion of LLC into PJSC) of the Company owned by them for the benefit of the Companys employees under this plan. These shares are held by two trustee companies on behalf of Tamweel PJSC. The cost of acquisition of these shares was AED 18 million at the rate of AED 1,000 per share of a nominal value of AED 1,000 each. Out of the above shares, the Company granted certain employees the right to purchase 6,900 shares of AED 1,000 each (equivalent to 6,900,000 shares of AED 1 each after the share split on conversion of LLC into PJSC) during 2006 at AED 1,015 per share (AED 1.015 per share on split). This entitlement to ownership became effective on or before 26 February 2006. These shares carry full dividend and voting rights. The fair value of these shares at the grant date was estimated at AED 7,003,500 at AED 1,015 per share (AED 1.015 per share on split). The remaining 11,100 shares of AED 1,000 each (equivalent to 11,100,000 shares of AED 1 each after the share split on conversion of LLC into PJSC) acquired under this scheme are held as plan shares by the trustees and will be granted in the future as and when the employees meet the pre-determined criteria. When granted to employees, the difference between the fair value of these shares on the grant date and amounts recovered from employees, if any, will be charged to the income statement. The fair value of these shares at 31 December 2006 is estimated at AED 45.399 million at the rate of AED 4.09 per share.

At 31 December 2006
(a) The Company has entered into certain lease agreements amounting to AED 1,288 million (US$ 350 million) with customers of Nakheel L.L.C. (Nakheel) which are recorded as off-balance sheet items in the books of the Company. The Company has also entered into securitisation and service agreements with Nakheel L.L.C. and Emirates National Securities Corporation (ENSeC) in connection with these lease agreements. The combined legal effect of these agreements is that the Company is acting on behalf of Nakheel in terms of its arrangements with Nakheels customers. In return it receives a service fee. Any amounts received from lessees are passed by the Company to the Trustees on behalf of Nakheel. Furthermore, as per the agreements, the Company is liable to ENSeC for any defaults by the credit customers. However, Nakheel has provided an irrevocable indemnity to the Company to make good any defaults by the customers and has also provided security in this regard. Accordingly, in the opinion of management the Company has minimal credit risk. The Company has obtained approval from the UAE Central Bank to account for the lease agreements as an off-balance item. (b) The Companys bankers have provided a guarantee of AED 50 million (2005: AED 50 million) favouring the UAE Central Bank against the share capital.

RISK MANAGEMENT

Pricing risk Pricing risk, comprising market and valuation risks, is managed on the basis of pre-determined asset allocations across various asset categories, a continuous appraisal of market conditions and trends and managements estimate of long and short term changes in fair value. Credit risk Credit risk is the risk that one party to a financial instrument will fail to discharge an obligation and cause the other party to incur a financial loss. There are formal procedures to assess and monitor credit risk as part of the process of advancing finance. In addition, management regularly reviews the state of receivables and provision is made for any specific balances considered doubtful of recovery. The credit risk is reduced since all assets and finance receivables are considered to be fully secured by direct ownership or mortgage over the assets financed. The Companys customers are mainly based in the United Arab Emirates. At 31 December 2006, there was no significant concentration of credit risk. Liquidity risk Liquidity risk is the risk that an institution will be unable to meet its net funding requirements. Liquidity risk can be caused by market disruptions or credit downgrades which may cause certain sources of funding to dry up immediately. To guard against this risk, management have diversified funding sources and assets are managed with liquidity in mind, maintaining a healthy balance of cash and cash equivalents. The table below summarises the maturity profile of the Companys assets and liabilities. The contractual maturities of assets and liabilities have been determined on the basis of the remaining period at the balance sheet date to the contractual maturity date. The maturity profile is monitored by management to ensure adequate liquidity is maintained.

The buyer is unable to require a refund except for non-delivery of the unit. Management believes that the likelihood of the Company being unable to fulfil its contractual obligations for these reasons is remote; and The aggregate sales proceeds and costs can be reasonably estimated.

Ijarah Ijarah income is recognised on a time-apportioned basis over the lease term. Murabaha Murabaha income is recognised on a time-apportioned basis over the period of the contract based on the principal amounts outstanding. Istisnaa Istisnaa revenue and the associated profit margin (difference between the cash price of al-masnoo to the customer and the Companys total Istisnaa cost) is accounted for on a time- apportioned basis. Processing fees Processing fees are recognized when facilities are approved. Cost of sale of property Cost of sale of property includes the cost of land and development costs. Development costs include the cost of infrastructure and construction. The cost of sale in respect of apartments is based on the estimated proportion of the development cost incurred to date to the estimated total development cost for each project. Islamic financing and investing assets Islamic financing and investing assets consist of Ijarah contracts, Istisnaa contracts and Murabaha receivables. Istisnaa cost is measured and reported in the financial statements at a value not exceeding the cash equivalent value. Other Islamic financing and investing assets are stated at cost less deferred profits and any provisions for impairment. Cash and cash equivalents Cash and cash equivalents comprise cash on hand, bank balances and short-term deposits with an original maturity of three months or less. Investments carried at fair value through income statement Investments are classified as fair value through income statement if the fair value of the investment can be reliably measured and the classification as fair value through income statement is as per the strategy of the Company. Investments classified as Investments at fair value through income statement upon initial recognition are remeasured at fair value with all changes in fair value being recorded in the income statement. Fair values For investments quoted in an active market, fair value is determined by reference to quoted market prices. Bid prices are used for assets and offer prices are used for liabilities. The fair value of investments in mutual funds, unit trusts, or similar investment vehicles are based on the last published bid price. For financial instruments where there is no active market fair value is normally based on one of the following: recent transactions brokers quotes The estimated fair value of corporate deposits is the amount payable on demand.

Fixed assets Fixed assets are stated at cost less accumulated depreciation and any impairment in value. Land and capital workin progress are not depreciated. Depreciation is calculated on a straight line basis over the estimated useful lives of the assets as follows: Leasehold improvements Office equipment Networks and servers Furniture and fixtures Computer equipment 5 years 5 years 4 years 4 years 3 years

The carrying values of fixed assets are reviewed for impairment when events or changes in circumstances indicate the carrying value may not be recoverable. If any such indication exists and where the carrying values exceed the estimated recoverable amount, the assets are written down to their recoverable amount. Expenditure incurred to replace a component of an item of fixed assets that is accounted for separately is capitalised and the carrying amount of the component that is replaced is written off. Other subsequent expenditure is capitalised only when it increases future economic benefits of the related item of fixed assets. All other expenditure is recognised in the income statement as the expense is incurred. Impairment and uncollectibility of financial assets An assessment is made at each balance sheet date to determine whether there is objective evidence that a specific financial asset may be impaired. If such evidence exists, any impairment loss is recognised in the income statement. Impairment is determined as follows: (a) (b) For assets carried at fair value, impairment is the difference between cost and fair value; For assets carried at cost, impairment is the difference between cost and the present value of future cash flows discounted at the current market rate of return for a similar financial asset.

Deposits Deposits are carried at cost, less amounts repaid. Accounts payable and accruals Liabilities are recognized for amounts to be paid in the future for goods or services received, whether billed by the supplier or not. Provisions Provisions are recognized when the Company has an obligation (legal or constructive) arising from a past event, and the costs to settle the obligation are both probable and able to be reliably measured. Zakat Zakat is computed as per the Companys Articles and Memorandum of Association and is approved by the Companys Shariaa Supervisory Board on the following basis: Zakat on shareholders equity is computed as the aggregate of general and legal reserves, provision for doubtful debt, retained earnings and provision for staff gratuity as multiplied by 2.577%. Zakat is disbursed by a committee appointed by the Board of Directors and operating as per the by-law set by the Board. Zakat on the paid up capital is not included in the zakat computations and is payable by the shareholders personally.

CONTINGENCIES

(a) The Company has entered into certain lease agreements amounting to AED 1,288 million (US$ 350 million) with customers of Nakheel L.L.C. (Nakheel) which are recorded as off-balance sheet items in the books of the Company. The Company has also entered into securitization and service agreements with Nakheel L.L.C. and Emirates National Securities Corporation (ENSeC) in connection with these lease agreements. The combined legal effect of these agreements is that the Company is acting on behalf of Nakheel in term of its arrangements with Nakheels customers. In return it receives a service fee. Any amount received from credit customers is passed by the Company to Trustees on behalf of Nakheel. Furthermore, as per the agreements, the Company is liable to ENSeC for any defaults by the credit customers. However, Nakheel has provided an irrevocable indemnity to the Company to make good any defaults by the customers and has also provided security in this regard. Accordingly, in the opinion of management the Company has minimal credit risk. The Company has obtained approval from the UAE Central Bank to account for the lease agreements as an off-balance item. (b) The Companys bankers have provided a guarantee of AED 50 million favoring the UAE Central Bank against the share capital. 21 RISK MANAGEMENT

Pricing risk Pricing risk, comprising market and valuation risks, is managed on the basis of pre-determined asset allocations across various asset categories, a continuous appraisal of market conditions and trends and managements estimate of long and short term changes in fair value. Credit risk Credit risk is the risk that one party to a financial instrument will fail to discharge an obligation and cause the other party to incur a financial loss. There are formal procedures to assess and monitor credit risk as part of the process of advancing finance. In addition, management regularly reviews the state of receivables and provision is made for any specific balances considered doubtful of recovery. The credit risk is reduced since all assets and finance receivables are considered to be fully secured by direct ownership or mortgage over the assets financed. The Companys customers are mainly based in the United Arab Emirates. At 31 December 2005, there was no significant concentration of credit risk.
