RIYADH: Saudi Telecom Co., one of the Kingdom’s biggest telecom providers, has received shareholders’ approval to raise capital by 150 percent to support its growth.

Saudi-listed stc will increase its current SR20 billion ($5.33 billion) capital to SR50 billion through issuing bonus shares, it said in a stock exchange filing.
