Social messaging app Telegram is receiving $150 million in new funding from Abu Dhabi-based investors.

Mubadala Investment Company said yesterday that it is buying five-year, pre-initial public offering convertible bonds worth $75 million in the company. Abu Dhabi Catalyst Partners – a joint venture between Mubadala and New York’s Falcon Edge Capital – is also investing $75m.

“We believe that Telegram is well-positioned for an inflection point that will transform it into a leading global technology company,” said Faris Al Mazrui, head of Mubadala’s investment programme for Russia and the Commonwealth of Independent States.

“The company represents a very promising investment opportunity for Mubadala and will sit well within our wider portfolio of pioneering companies looking to transform their respective industries.”

Telegram co-founder Pavel Durov said the platform was looking forward to developing the strategic partnership with Mubadala and Abu Dubai Catalyst Partners “to continue our growth in the Mena region and globally”.

The platform was founded in 2013 by Mr Durov and his brother Nikolai as a secure messaging app with end-to-end encryption. It was initially based in Russia but later moved its headquarters to Dubai.

Last month, Mr Durov praised the start-up ecosystem and the business-friendly legislation in the UAE at a meeting with Dubai’s Crown Prince, Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed.

Telegram’s user numbers have increased in recent months after Facebook-owned WhatsApp made changes to its terms and conditions, sparking privacy concerns. It is now one of the 10 most downloaded apps in the world with more than 500 million active monthly users.

The growth “demonstrates the management team’s unshakeable dedication to building a platform centred around privacy and user experience”, said Abu Dhabi Catalyst Partners’ chief financial officer James Munce.

Telegram will also open an office in Abu Dhabi Global Market, the UAE capital’s financial free zone.

TEACHERS' PAY - WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW

Pay varies significantly depending on the school, its rating and the curriculum. Here's a rough guide as of January 2021:

- top end schools tend to pay Dh16,000-17,000 a month - plus a monthly housing allowance of up to Dh6,000. These tend to be British curriculum schools rated 'outstanding' or 'very good', followed by American schools

- average salary across curriculums and skill levels is about Dh10,000, recruiters say

- it is becoming more common for schools to provide accommodation, sometimes in an apartment block with other teachers, rather than hand teachers a cash housing allowance

- some strong performing schools have cut back on salaries since the pandemic began, sometimes offering Dh16,000 including the housing allowance, which reflects the slump in rental costs, and sheer demand for jobs

- maths and science teachers are most in demand and some schools will pay up to Dh3,000 more than other teachers in recognition of their technical skills

- at the other end of the market, teachers in some Indian schools, where fees are lower and competition among applicants is intense, can be paid as low as Dh3,000 per month

- in Indian schools, it has also become common for teachers to share residential accommodation, living in a block with colleagues
