31 Kuwaiti firms suspended for not posting results

(AFP) / 16 May 2012

The Kuwait Stock Exchange (KSE) on Wednesday suspended trading in the shares of 31 listed firms, a majority of them investment companies, for failing to report financial results on time.

A statement posted on the KSE website said the companies violated a rule that requires them to announce financial results for the first quarter within 45 days.

Many of the firms had already been suspended for not declaring results for previous periods.

Twenty of the firms suspended are investment companies that were badly hit by the global financial crisis and have so far failed to recover from its impact.

KSE, the third largest Arab bourse in market value after Saudi Arabia and Qatar, lists around 220 Kuwaiti and Gulf companies and has a capitalisation of $105 billion.

Among the firms suspended are Investment Dar and Global Investment Co., two major investment firms that have been reeling under the impact of huge debt.
