Who's in on this deal???

Is this Warka all over again, 200% paid up shares? Probably not. "If" it's true that Ahli United Bank of Bahrain actually owns 50-70% of the stock, one would think they are going to participate in their own offering.

Now the question is: With the share price sitting around 1.27, is this worth the risk? Middle East Bank has 3X the profit of Commercial, it trades for .25 more. Gulf Bank has 2.5X their profit and trades for .07 more. Also, who knows what's up with Union Bank, they have 50% better profit numbers and trade around 1.04...go figure.

The positive side of Commercial is that their price to book value is .9, I would expect the 27% gain to hold on paid up shares. But, if the majority shareholder doesn't subscribe to their shares (like Bunnia and Warka), everything will be at risk. Here's the update from Warka's website:

Dear Warka Investors,
We would like to bring to your kind attention that Commercial Bank has announced that it will be issuing:

200% paid up shares at the price of IQD (1) per share for those shares owned and held prior to holding its general assembly meeting.

Eligible Shareholders are kindly requested to submit their signed authorization letters to purchase the paid up shares by the 13 March 2013 Warka business hours where any request receivedafter this date and business hours will be considered null and void by our good bank.

Please send your signed requests to our ISX department isx@warka-bank-iq.com (http://www.investorsiraq.com/forums/redir.aspx?C=a4219dcf6eaf485f97cffff3f882f175&URL=mailto%3aisx%40warka-bank-iq.com)

Any dollar and change stock is not worth buying the offered paid up share in this ISX environment where sentiments are still negative. If it does come out of its stupid offer it will go down 1 iqd any way and would make it more cheaper to buy. Still if it is not good enough argument than think about Basra, Warka , Mosul, and many other sick industrial stocks that have no future at this point.

A MUST READ !!!!

My Favorite part:

"With three attractive mobile companies listing and a custody solution finally at hand, the ISX is now in a position to mobilise significant amounts of foreign capital. These two developments, combined with Iraq’s rapid economic growth and the strong outlook for corporate earnings, mean that 2013 might well be the year the ISX really takes off."

Me too, Warka has been unavailable as far as answering emails.

In my past dealings with them they were always prompt & courteous.

I finally received my full portfolio last month after numerous requests, it was right on the money, that is a HUGE positive.

I placed a buy order for Asiacell which I don't think got filled, I have sent NUMEROUS requests for another buy order or some sort of update as to my order confirmation have yet to get a reply.

I'd like to get Asiacell and Zain in my portfolio, at that point I'll sit tight for another few years waiting for 50% retracements.

Me also,got 90million IQD to spend and plan 'A' is to buy max paid share offer on Warka,Basrah Baghdad banks,and 1 million shares each from Asia cell,Zain and Korek phone companies,and roll all the cash and profits for the next 4 years into my existing portfolio then cash all my chips in and retire early.

Plan 'B' is to sell exiting portfolio,that would add 30million IQD not including existing Warka,Basrah shares
to present 90mill=120=approx. $100,000=short good time.:cool:
will make the tough decision this year.:confused:
