Saudi British Jumps Most in Three Weeks on Bonus-Share Plan

Saudi British Bank surged the most in three weeks after the board of the lender, which is 40 percent owned by HSBC Holdings Plc, proposed raising the bank’s capital through bonus shares.

The stock surged as much as 4.4 percent, the largest intraday gain since Dec. 3, to 40.50 riyals, and traded at 39.90 riyals at 11:29 a.m. in Riyadh.

The board of the Riyadh-based lender proposed to increase the bank’s capital by 33 percent to 10 billion riyals ($2.7 billion) by awarding one bonus share for every three held. It also said it will pay a dividend of 0.65 riyals a share for 2011.
