Eng Shafiq Abdelhamid, Chairman of DSI, said: “We are hopeful that Drake & Scull will return to the path of growth and prosperity in the coming years. We look forward to the decision of the Dubai Courts in regard to the submitted application and anticipated completion of the restructuring process.”

The company said that it had previously disclosed the filing of a formal application in Dubai Courts in the third quarter of 2021, requesting the company be subject to restructuring procedures in accordance with the emergency provisions of the UAE Bankruptcy Law.

It confirmed that it will make every effort for its stock to resume being traded on the Dubai Financial Market after the completion of the restructuring plan, followed by obtaining the necessary approvals.

Any developments regarding the resumption of trading will be announced through the official channels promptly, the statement concluded.
