Today marks the Drake & Scull International PJSC (DSI) first anniversary since listing on the DFM. Overall, it has been a successful year for DSI despite the challenging economic climate and the company has managed to come out with good numbers and profits. DSI has successfully met a number of the targets and aims that were set before listing mainly through expanding the business streamlines and services and increasing the company’s geographical reach. With a rewarding year behind the company, DSI has a positive outlook for 2010.
The DSI board of directors met yesterday , Monday 15th March 2010, to discuss a number of topics:
1 – The distribution of dividends. The Board recommended that 7% of share face value to be distributed as cash dividends and this will be approved during the DSI forthcoming Annual General Meeting (AGM). Financially, the company is in a strong position at the moment especially with the substantial profits and revenues from last year – this has encouraged DSI to pass these rewards on to their shareholders in the form of cash dividends.
2 - The board also approved the establishment of DSI Egypt and Oman - this decision comes due to the growing infrastructure and construction industries in these countries.
3 - The board also discussed the upcoming acquisition of an MEP company in Qatar – due diligence studies have been completed and the process is in its final stages. The Sales & Purchase agreement for this acquisition will be drafted shortly and the official announcement will be made in due time.
