Hussein Fakhreddine, Co-Chief Executive Officer of QInvest LLC, commented on the conclusion of the book building period, saying: “Final pricing of the shares driven by the investors themselves is a testament of the effectiveness of the book building mechanism to transparently price the IPO based on supply and demand, factoring in market conditions and orders received from Qualified Investors”.
