The Economy & Planning Ministry has asked Dubai Islamic Bank (DIB) to postpone its plans to increase its capital through a rights issue. The move follows the ministry’s decision to regulate the timing of initial public offerings (IPOs) and capital increases in response to a drop in local stock exchanges. The Dubai Financial Market (DFM) lost 11 per cent of its value on 14 March and overall the federations forces were down by about 20 per cent since the beginning of the year.
