Listing Readiness Assessment

Listing is a turning point in the life of your company, a process not an event. Successful companies start early with the Listing readiness assessment.

  • Listing readiness means implementing change throughout the business, organization and corporate culture
  • Companies that have completed a successful listing in the Saudi Exchange know that the process is truly a transformation — a series of planned, pervasive changes undertaken to achieve long-term objectives
  • The listing should be a structured and managed process, which starts long before the transaction with a listing readiness assessment

Saudi Exchange is excited to have joined forces with Ernst & Young (‘EY’) in MENA to produce a high-level listing readiness assessment questionnaire to give you an initial view on your likely readiness for the listing process. This basic tool summarizes some of the key questions that you should be asking yourselves as future listing candidates. It should be used as a precursor to receiving professional advice. Typically, we see that the preparation process (post readiness assessment) can take anywhere from 6 to 36 months, depending on the issuer’s readiness.
