I applied for right issues as a share holder but no letter of allocation or confirmation of my allocations that I am entitled to, so could not trade any Arabtec shares today. It looks like many share holders like me were not allocated (right issues they applied for).
I hope Arabtec and the Banks who dealt with Arabtec right issues rectify this problem very soon so not to put some of their share holders at disadvantage.

I got all my allocations,it is nothing to do with the clearing banks or Arabtec but they were with DFM and the share holders need to contact their brokers to draw them from DFM.
