This move is part of the country's privatisation program, which  allows for offering of stakes to investors, and shareholders who opt out of holding their shares after delisting will be compensated with EGP 1,250 per share. 
At this point in time, the company has a total value of EGP 1.95 billion, calculated from its 19.5 million listed shares with a nominal value of EGP 100 per share. Ezz Steel holds a 54.59 percent stake in the delisted company, with the Egyptian government owning almost 36.4 percent.

Al Ezz Dekheila Steel Alexandria's website states its annual steel production capacity is 3.2 million tonnes.
