Riyadh – The Capital Market Authority (CMA) greenlighted Middle East Paper Company’s (MEPCO) capital increase to SAR 666.66 million from SAR 500 million through bonus shares.

The hike process will be carried out by capitalising SAR 166.66 million from the retained earnings account after issuing one bonus share for every three owned shares, according to a bourse filling.

Meanwhile, the number of shares of the raise will stand at 66.66 million shares, higher by 16.66 million than 50 million shares.

Last August, the board of MEPCO recommended the 33% capital hike in line with the company’s future growth plans to back its financial position.
