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.
