This follows the agreement regarding the convertible bonds issued by SHUAA to Dubai Banking Group, whereby Dubai Banking Group will convert the AED 1,500 million convertible notes into 515 million shares, representing a 48.4 per cent stake of SHUAA Capital’s share capital, ShUAA said in a press release today.

As a result, SHUAA’s issued and paid up capital will be increased by AED 515 million to AED 1,065 million. Total shareholders’ equity will remain unchanged at AED 2.16 billion as reported in the second quarter 2009 financial statements.

The new agreement represents a conversion price of AED 2.91 per share, equal to a premium of 93% to the closing share price of SHUAA of AED 1.51 on 27 August 2009. The foregoing terms are within the authority conferred by SHUAA’s shareholders in their extraordinary general meeting held in Dubai on 15 April 2009.
