Zain KSA’s $1.6 billion rights issue was fully subscribed by the deadline, according to Saudi Fransi Capital, the lead manager of the rights issue.

Saudi Fransi Capital confirmed that the receiving banks had received subscription applications for in excess of 632 million shares by the close of the rights issue offer period, representing demand of SR6.3 ($1.69bn) billion and covering some 105.42% of the rights issue.

This close of the rights issue marks the completion of Zain KSA's capital restructuring, a process intended to strengthen the company's financial and commercial position.
