    Dubai Parks and Resorts, a subsidiary of Meraas Holding, said it has secured Dh4.2 billion ($1.15 billion) funding to support its ambitious plan to create the Middle Eastís first mega leisure and entertainment destination in Dubai, UAE.

    The syndicated financing facilities have been structured by Goldman Sachs, said a statement from Dubai Parks and Resorts.

    The company had recently launched its initial public offering (IPO) on the Dubai Financial Market with a total offer size of approximately Dh2.5 billion ($684 million).

    The offering, which comprises 2,528,731,083 ordinary shares, represents 40 per cent of Dubai Parks and Resortsí post-offer issued share capital. The shares are priced at Dh1 ($0.272) per share, plus Dh0.01 per share in offer costs.

    Well, here's more money sources:

    Goldman Sachs is expected to sign a $1.15 billion project financing loan for Dubai Park and Resorts this week, which will finance the construction of a $2.9 billion amusement park complex in Dubai, banking sources said on Wednesday.

    The loan has been underwritten by Goldman Sachs, which led and structured the deal, Abu Dhabi Commercial Bank, Commercial Bank International, Emirates National Bank of Dubai, and Noorbank, the sources said.
    The project financing will fund construction of the parks, along with equity provided by Meraas investment group and the $689 million Initial Public Offering (IPO) of 40 percent of Dubai Parks and Resorts, which was announced on Tuesday.

    The 10-12 year project financing will benefit from support from Meraas and will be sold in a wider syndication that is expected to start shortly, bankers said.
    Work began on the project in February 2014 and completion is expected by the end of September 2016.

    Without the IPO, they wouldn't have the funds to complete the three parks:

    Dubai Meraas unit plans $689m IPO for theme park project
    plans to launch a $689 million initial public offer of shares this month as it builds a $2.9 billion amusement park complex which is key to the emirate's drive to expand as an international tourist destination.

    Dubai Parks and Resorts, part of the government-owned Meraas investment group, said on Tuesday it would sell 2.53 billion shares or 40 percent of its outstanding shares between November 17 and November 30, at a price of 1 AED each.

    Dubai Parks and Resorts sets target on completion in 2016
    To make certain that construction milestones will be met, the developer has got Samsung's construction entity on board, while Hill International is handling project management services.
    Dubai Parks CEO Raed al Nuaimi quotes:

    "The design and choice of attractions was to position the destination to an international standard and audience and not as a regional amusement park. We are quite clear about that demarcation, and why we went for international IPs (intellectual property) through tie-ins with DreamWorks, Sony or a Legoland."
    "In 2006-07, there was a lot of talk about bringing theme parks to Dubai and which never happened. From that perspective, we are clear about the need to set goals that are achievable by a set date, and that's going to be in 2016."
    "The queuing lines for all of the attractions will be in air-conditioned areas. Also, the entire DreamWorks IP features will be fully indoors."
