Dubai Islamic Bank (DIB) has published its formal offer for the shares in Tamweel it does not currently own, following approval from the Securities and Commodities Authority (SCA).
Under the plan, 10 new DIB shares will be given for 18 Tamweel shares held. The fair value of each share for DIB and Tamweel underlying the intended swap is set at Dh2.25 and Dh1.25 respectively.

We believe this offer is in the best interests of the shareholders, customers and stakeholders of both DIB and Tamweel.”
