The cancellation of the listings and the admission of the GDRs' trading took effect at 8am on 26 February, 2018. 

According to the firm, the delisting was carried out because "the volume of [GDRs] traded on the LSE was negligible and did not, in Depa’s view, justify the related expenses of the listing".

The company is also listed on Nasdaq Dubai.

Earlier this month, Depa announced that it would change its listing currency on Nasdaq Dubai from US dollars to UAE dirhams.

The company said its last day of trading in US dollars would be 6 March, 2018.
