All outstanding and unsubscribed shares from the first round of the subscription process may be acquired by shareholders through cash deposits or in exchange for the shares’ value in liabilities owed to them by the Firm and attested to by a report from the firm’s Auditor of Record.

“The fact of the meeting having attracted a quorum of 57.19 percent of all issued shares — the highest attendance at a Citadel Capital general assembly in the past three years — is a clear vote of shareholder confidence in our ongoing transformation into an investment holding company that will stand as an African leader in infrastructure and resources,” said Citadel Capital Chairman and Founder Ahmed Heikal.

The firm expects the second subscription round for the capital increase to be fully subscribed and completed within the coming three weeks.

The firm’s independent auditor (KPMG / Hazem Hassan) has previously certified USD 0.53 million in liabilities to co-investors and shareholders, mainly arising from investment purchases by the firm. Citadel Capital will capitalize an amount equivalent to the uncovered portion of the ongoing capital increase.

The firm’s Ordinary General Meeting, held immediately before the EGM, approved the Citadel Capital’s FY 2013 Standalone Financial Statements and other standard business attendant to the closing of the 2013 business year and the opening of the current fiscal year.
