In a statement to Tadawul, SRMG noted that all required approvals were gained and legal and regulatory formalities completed for transfer of sale shares in Thmanyah Publishing (a limited liability company) to Arab Media Co.
This included obtaining a no-objection letter from the General Authority for Competition (GAC) and amendment of Thmanyah Publishing’s articles of association to reflect the transaction, the statement said.
