The new capital will stand at SAR 76.94 million distributed over 7.69 million shares, compared to SAR 51.29 million and 5.12 million shares prior to the hike.
In the first half ( H1) of 2023, Walaa turned profitable at SAR 67.95 million, compared to net losses before Zakat valued at SAR 61.20 million in H1-22.
