Delisting from Stock Exchange.

The Company proposes to seek delisting and de-quoting of the ordinary shares from the Karachi Stock Exchange and Lahore Stock Exchange as majority of the shares are held by the sponsors and their relatives (91.79%) and the shares being traded in the market are only 8.21% of total shareholdings. Furthermore due to persistent losses in past years the Company is not in a position to bear the cost of listing on the Stock Exchanges and to meet the Corporate Compliances prescribed for the listed companies. As such there is no benefit of listing to the shareholders and to the company, therefore on the Board of Directors’ approval the Company has applied for delisting and de-quotation of its ordinary shares from the stock Exchanges. The sponsors are being authorized to purchase ordinary shares at the price of Rs. 5/- per share (Rupees Five only), as determined by the Karachi Stock Exchange and Lahore Stock Exchange from the shareholders other than sponsors and their relatives.
