Reinforcing its commitment to deliver leading financial services to MPHC and its shareholders, Commercial Bank has extended MPHC’s dividend distribution channels to all Commercial Bank branches. Commercial Bank CEO Mr Abdullah Saleh Al Raisi said: “Providing service levels aligned with international best practice is a major part of our commitment to building relationships with the key industries that drive Qatar’s development. We are delighted to be entrusted with the responsibility of distributing dividends for MPHC; a high-profile and leading listed company in Qatar.”

In light of MPHC’s requirements, Commercial Bank’s process of dividend distribution has been tailored to offer MPHC shareholders fast, efficient and accessible services. These services include the option of cash payments for dividends less than QAR 100,000, instant dividend credit to a Commercial Bank account or transfers to banks locally and worldwide. MPHC’s shareholders using the Qatar Central Securities Depository (QCSD) direct credit service will receive their dividends on the day following the Annual General Meeting (AGM), subject to dividends being approved at the AGM.

The distribution process is further enhanced by Commercial Bank’s extensive banking network, comprising 33 full service branches strategically located across Qatar, ensuring MPHC shareholders can access their MPHC dividends quickly and conveniently. For MPHC shareholders who add their bank account in QCSD, Commercial Bank will credit their MPHC dividends instantly and without visiting a branch in person by calling Commercial Bank’s Contact Centre.
