Deyaar Development PJSC (“Deyaar”), one of Dubai’s leading property developers and real estate service providers, today announced the resolutions of the annual general assembly meeting, held on Wednesday 27 April 2022.
The shareholders approved via special resolution, the Board of Directors proposal to write off the accumulated losses through company’s legal reserve and cancelation of shares equal to the remaining losses. The proposed date to execute the reduction is 6 June this year, subject to the completion of the procedures and approvals from the relevant authorities as per the applicable rules and regulations.
Under this resolution, the company will reduce the capital from AED 5.78 billion to AED 4.38 billion, which is a reduction of AED 1.4 billion. The accumulated losses amounting AED 1.7 billion as of 31 December 2021 will be written off using the legal reserve amounting AED 303.4 million and cancelation of shares equal the remaining accumulated losses amounting AED 1.4 billion. The company will take into consideration the shareholders with small holdings, so that the reduction of the capital does not result in denying any shareholder of his shareholding in the company.
