The Securities and Exchange Commission of Pakistan (SECP) approved a Scheme of Arrangement between PIA and PIA Holding Company Limited on May 3, 2024. This approval allows PIA to get delisted from PSX on May 25, 2024.

For the purpose of determining eligibility for the issue or allotment of PIAHCL shares, PIACL will not consider any transfer received by its Share Registrar after the Final Book Closure Date.

The last day for trading PIA shares will be Friday, May 24, 2024. The main bourse has informed all shareholders that shares of PIA (both PIAA and PIAB) will be available for trading in the Regular Market on a T+0/Spot settlement basis during the final two trading days.

“Shareholders are hereby informed that the shares of PIACL shall no longer be traded on the Pakistan Stock Exchange after the Final Book Closure Date,” the filing added.

It is also worth noting that at a recent review meeting of the Ministry of Privatization and the Privatization Commission, it was revealed that the pre-qualification process for the privatization of Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) will be completed by the end of May.
