Financial Highlights

Offering Information

The offering consists of a 100% secondary sale of shares amounting to 264 M shares, representing 46% of the company. A secondary sale means no new shares will be offered, the selling shareholders will be offering some of the shares they already have to the public. 

5% of the total offering (~75 million EGP) is allocated to individual (non-institutional) investors – Who should submit their orders between Sunday, April 11 and Thursday, April 15. It is pretty common in IPOs to receive orders for more than the allocated amount. In such a case, allocation is then to be made on a pro-rata basis.


  • Offering size: 100 million EGP
  • Orders submitted by individual investors: 400 million EGP
  • Subscription coverage:  4 times
  • Allocation: each individual investor to receive 25% of what they asked for

The Best Part of It – Your Investment in the IPO is protected

The selling shareholders have established a stabilization fund that covers 100% of the IPO retail offering. The purpose of the fund is to offer investors the chance to return their shares to the selling shareholder at the same IPO price after 30 days. This means that if the price of the stock falls below the IPO price within the first 30 days, you can sell it back at the same price you bought it for. You heard that right, you have nothing to lose.
