ADX-listed Abu Dhabi Ship Building, in which Mubadala has a 40 per cent stake, won an Dh870 million contract to provide two vessels to the UAE armed forces, according to Major General Obaid Al Ketbi, an Idex spokesman. Its shares closed 11 per cent higher in Abu Dhabi yesterday.

A Dh2.4 billion contract was awarded by the armed forces to Al Taif Technical Services to provide maintenance for ground force vehicles.
