  2. Because the allocation of shares “in kind” was intended to be completed by the end of December 2017, some clients showed lack of desire to proceed if the transaction was made in 2018. Thus, the company must complete the cash or in kind subscription “for those who wish”.
  3. According to the e-mail sent by Al Bilad Finance Company, the funding received is not commensurate with the Fund Manager and therefore will seek subsidy with other banks targeting an amount of SR 135 million and that will take some time.
