As a result of the Transaction, the Company’s issued and paid up capital will increase to KD 53,363,750. The new shares will be sold at an attractive price and Abyaar has submitted an application to be listed on the Dubai Financial Market (the “DFM)” in the form of a secondary listing to complement its current listing on the Kuwait Stock Exchange.
