“SHUAA is now going through the final regulatory approvals following which a decision will be made to IPO the SPAC (special purpose acquisition company),” it said in a bourse statement.

Abu Dhabi-headquartered Anghami, the Middle East’s rival to Spotify (NYSE:SPOT), last week listed on the Nasdaq, after merging with blank-check firm Vistas Media Acquisition Company.
