Earlier in the day, Ma’aden revealed that its board recommended the extra-ordinary general assembly to increase company capital through a rights issue with a total value of SAR5.6 billion ($2.027bn), subject to obtaining approvals of the competent regulatory authorities and the extra-ordinary general assembly on the capital increase and setting the price and number of shares to be issued. The objectives of the capital increase are to expand the company’s phosphate and gold operations and to continue funding the aluminum project.
