As a result, the company’s net profit during the six months period ended June 30 reached KD 15m (earnings per share 15 fils).”

He added: “In the first half of 2022, stc has successfully increased its share capital to reach KD99.9m through distributing 100 per cent bonus shares to its shareholders. This decision came from stc’s positive outlook on creating an added value to its shareholders and place their interest on its top priorities. In this regard, stc’s management ensures developing long term financial policy to balance between its operational and financial performance that would positively reflect on its solvency and enhance its market position as a leader in the telecom industry and a pioneer in the digital transformation.”
