An extraordinary shareholders meeting in HCM City, which saw the participation of holders of nearly 18.3 million shares -- or nearly 100 per cent of all shareholders -- voted for a bonus issue in the ratio of seven shares for every 10 held.

Accordingly, 13 million new shares will be issued.

The meeting also approved issue of over 1.6 million shares to employees.

After the issues, the total number of shares will rise to nearly 33.88 million.

The shares to be issued to employees will be priced at VND27,000. They will have a 12-month lock-in period during which they cannot be sold.
