The board also recommended increasing the company’s share capital from SR400 million to SR600 million through the distribution of 1 bonus share for every 2 owned shares.

The recommendations were discussed during a review of the company’s financial statements conducted at a board meeting that was convened on Jan. 20. The meeting also focused on Red Sea Housing’s corporate strategy and future expansion plans.

“In addition to supporting the company’s capitalization, the board’s recommendations also complement our long-term growth strategy of expanding current activities, entering new international markets, investing in the construction materials sector, and engaging in affordable housing sector,” Mallawi added.
