Etihad Airways statement on IPO fraud
Etihad Airways strenuously denies it has any plans for an initial public offering (IPO) and any announcement associating the airline with an IPO should be disregarded and reported to the authorities as a fraud.
The announcement follows an IPO-fraud activity by a clone firm calling itself Gerard & Alterman, offering Etihad Airways shares for sale to the public.
Etihad Airways has reported this IPO fraud to Action Fraud, the UK’s National Fraud and Cyber Crime Reporting Center, and is following up with the authorities.
The airline encourages people who may have been contacted by the so called Gerard & Alterman to report their case to Action Fraud at http://www.actionfraud.police.uk/report_fraud.
