Zameen.com’s parent group acquires Morocco’s largest property portal Mubawab

Lahore: Emerging Markets Property Group (EMPG), the parent company of Pakistan’s largest property portal Zameen.com, has announced that it has acquired Morocco’s largest property portal Mubawab.

Headquartered in Casablanca, Mubawab was founded in 2011 by entrepreneurs Kevin Gormand and Toni Puig. It has since grown to become the largest real estate vertical in the country, expanding operations to several cities and registering strong growth across all metrics, including revenue. The portal has also created a significant brand presence in Morocco, having successfully executed TV campaigns since 2015.

The acquisition bolsters EMPG’s presence in the region further, where it is already the largest player with Bayut in the UAE and Bproperty in Bangladesh in addition to Zameen.com.

“Haider Ali Khan, CEO of Bayut.com and responsible for EMPG’s international expansion and operations, said Mubawab’s founders will continue to lead the portal as EMPG injects capital and introduces its data-driven strategy and technology.

“We believe Mubawab’s core strength is its people, and we are happy that they will continue to lead the charge. Kevin and Toni have built a great team, and they are the best people to carry the portal into this new phase of rapid development and consolidation under the EMPG umbrella,” said Khan. “The Group will be injecting a substantial amount of funds and expertise into Mubawab, with the singular aim of driving exponential growth across all metrics.”

EMPG Chairman Gilles Blanchard, co-founder of France’s largest property portal Seloger, said, “Morocco is an excellent market with tremendous potential, and we are excited about the opportunity to develop the real estate ecosystem further.”

Kevin Gormand, CEO of Mubawab, said the Mubawab team was looking forward to benefiting from EMPG’s experience in similar markets. “We are very excited about this partnership and see a clear path to consolidating the market in the near future. EMPG has done a fantastic job in similar markets and we look forward to leveraging the infrastructure and tools to help us achieve the same in Morocco,” said Gormand.
