Shares in Saudi Arabian telecommunications firm Etihad Etisalat (Mobily) tumbled to a six-year low as they resumed trading on Monday after the company restated earnings for 27 months and posted a second-quarter loss.
The stock opened 10 percent lower at 30.50 riyals, its lowest since mid-2009, although it then pared its losses after a few minutes to stand 3.0 percent down. Mobily was the most heavily traded stock in the kingdom.
Mobily last week restated results for 2013-14 and the first quarter of 2015, slashing total profits over the period by nearly 1.76 billion riyals ($470 million) in its latest attempt to resolve an accounting scandal.
