Al-Ansari raises the stake of individual investors to 56.2 million shares


Yesterday, Al Ansari Financial Services Group announced that it will exercise its right to increase the number of preference shares allocated to individual investors in the UAE from 37.5 million ordinary shares to 56.25 million ordinary shares in the group’s initial public offering. Approval of Securities and Commodities Commission.

And the company said in a statement that the decision was taken due to overwhelming demand from individual investors and recording a surplus in the subscription of individual investors in the UAE.

The size of the offering on the Dubai Financial Market remains unchanged at 750 million ordinary shares, which is 10% of the total shares issued in the capital of Al-Ansari Financial Services.

As a result of the selling shareholder’s decision to increase the amount of shares allocated to the individual investor class, 693.75 million ordinary shares will be allocated to the professional investor class instead of 712.5 million ordinary shares.

Based on the previously announced price range of 1 to 1.03 dirhams per share, the value of the shares allocated to the individual investor segment will now be 56.3 to 57.9 million dirhams, which is 7.5% of the initial public offering size.

It is noteworthy that the offering shares are not new, but rather the existing shares belong to the selling partner «Al-Ansari Holding», which is selling 10% of its ownership in the group.

Therefore, the offering proceeds will go to the selling partner, without the group receiving any proceeds from the global offer, while the selling partner will retain ownership of 90% of the group’s shares after the global offer.
