Why the proposal?

According to the website, this is because KPI Green’s shares have seen a significant rise this year, increasing 183%. Its stock is trading marginally lower than the record high of 1413.90, achieved on December 13.

KPI Green’s board is, therefore, contemplating additional shares for the company’s shareholders, and the proposal is likely to be taken up – and approved – at the board meeting on Saturday. The proposal, if approved, will be the second instance of KPI Green issuing additional shares to its shareholders; in January, these were given in the ratio of 1:1, i.e., one free share for every one share held.
