Shareholders, who hold Rights to subscribe for New Shares but do not wish to exercise their Rights, may sell their Rights to other investors via brokers registered and licensed by the DFM.

  • Trading in the Rights:

The DFM will coordinate with brokerage firms to add the balance of the Shareholders’ Rights in the amount of 1 Right for every 4 Shares held on the Eligibility Date to their respective accounts maintained by the respective brokerage firm.

-       Subscription Closing Date: Wednesday31 October 2018

  • Subscription for Additional Shares:

Pursuant to Article 8 of the Decree, in addition to exercising their Rights to subscribe for one New Share for each Right held, Eligible Persons will also be allowed to apply for additional New Shares ("Additional New Shares"), which will be allocated in the event that any unsubscribed for New Shares remain, either as a result of the consolidation of the unallocated fractional entitlements to New Shares, or the failure by Eligible Persons to exercise their Rights to subscribe for New Shares.

The Additional New Shares will be allocated, on a pro rata basis, to the Eligible Persons who subscribed for such Additional New Shares, based on the number of Additional New Shares requested by such Eligible Persons. If any unsubscribed New Shares still remain after the allocation of the Additional New Shares to the Eligible Persons who had subscribed for such Additional New Shares (the "Public Shares"), the Public Shares will be offered for sale through a public offering (the persons subscribing for the Public Shares being referred to as the "Public Subscribers"), unless the Bank’s Board of Directors resolves to fix the increased amount to the amount which has been actually subscribed for.

  • Ownership Limitations: 51% of the issued share capital of the Bank must be owned by nationals of the United Arab Emirates.

The allocation of Additional New Shares to the Eligible Persons after allocations to the Eligible Persons who have subscribed for a number of New Shares equal to or less than the number of Rights they hold will be on a pro rata basis, scaled back (if necessary) in accordance with the proportion that the number of Additional New Shares requested by the subscriber represents to the total number of Additional New Shares requested by all Eligible Persons who subscribed for such Additional New Shares.
