NAIROBI, August 6 – Results of the recently concluded Kenya Commercial Bank Rights Issue are due out Thursday.

Shareholders will be keen to hear whether they succeeded to take up all the 222 million shares that were on offer in the ratio of one new ordinary share for every nine already held.

The Rights Issue closed on July 11. The record register closed on June 4 but the upload of the issues into the CDSC system as well as the sending of provisional allotment letters took place on June 13.

Commencement in trading of the rights started on June 23, while the last date of immobilisation of provisional rights took place on the June 30th of June.
