I guess this increase in Asmak capital is related to the Hydra Properties sukuk. The disclosure says new share capital is 50 million. Presumably they mean number of shares is 50 million - as shares have a par value of AED 6 dhs each (Asmak par value
was reduced from 10 dhs to 6 dhs per share on 04 May 2008), that would mean share capital is AED 300 million?
There seems to be an error somewhere though. Originally I thought the capital increase due to the Hydra Properties convertible sukuk/bond was AED 140m but it appears to be only AED120m now (from 20m shares)
Asmak shares rose 2.16% to 31.00 in limited trading today (only AED 157,000 worth). There was no obvious price adjustment to compensate for the share dilution. Maybe tomorrow ...
