(MENAFN - The Peninsula) Qatar Exchange (QE) will list the Mesaieed Petrochemical Holding Company (MPHC) on Wednesday, February 26.

With the listing of MPHC, the number of listed companies on QE will increase to 43

QE stated that listing of MPHC will be in the Industrial Sector with a ticker symbol MPHC.

An official source at the Qatar Central Securities Depository said that the MPHC current shareholders' data (approximately 199,000 shareholders) has been registered in the shareholders accounts at the QCSD which has provided the brokerage firms with special systems allowing them to know the shareholders numbers (NIN) and the number of shares allocated to them in order to facilitate trading process

The data will become available at the brokerage firms effective Sunday, February 23, 2014, so investors will be able to submit their buy/sell orders directly to the brokers as of that date
