“After discussion with [the] Audit Committee and External Auditors, the Board has decided to discontinue the operations of the subsidiaries and to liquidate by December 2018 due to significant losses and equity deficits,” the company told Muscat Securities Market.

“Pursuant to this, [the] company has considered impairment of investment in subsidiaries and due from subsidiaries. In addition to this, [the] company has decided to impair goodwill of OMR0.8m ($2.08m).”

The company’s unaudited financial results for the year, ended 31 December, 2017, revealed that Al Hassan Engineering Co suffered a consolidated loss of $69.45m (OMR26.74m) in 2017, while its parent loss stood at $7.43m (OMR2.86m).
