Furthermore, the memorandum will give Egyptian and Saudi companies access to each other’s markets, allowing them to raise funds from the open market by getting themselves listed in the stock markets. Listing is highly advantageous for a company, as it allows the company to issue fresh share capital to raise funds for growth and expansion. In turn, this will help the Egyptian and Saudi companies expand their businesses. Retail investors also can benefit immensely when companies list, as a listing of securities allows individuals to invest in businesses with the potential for wealth creation.
Moreover, the listing will enhance the goodwill and reputation of companies in each other’s countries, as it will create a public profile for the company and can play a crucial role in enhancing its goodwill. This will significantly boost the business environment in these two countries, ultimately leading to an improved overall economic condition.
