Kuwait Stock Exchange Mulls IPO

Kuwait Stock Exchange is seeking an IPO. “The Kuwait Stock Exchange may offer up to 44% of its shares to a company that has experience in operating bourses when it goes public,” a senior government official told Reuters on March 26, 2015. “Kuwaiti lawmakers voted on March 25, 2015 to amend the ownership structure for the impending initial public offering (IPO) of the bourse,” Faisal al-Shaya, head of the Kuwait's parliament's economic and financial committee, told Reuters by telephone. “A second and final vote on the law is expected at the next parliament session in two weeks, or a decision may be taken earlier by the economic and financial committee on behalf of the lawmakers,” Faisal al-Shaya said. “The IPO will take place once the amendments are passed,” Faisal al-Shaya added. Under the plan passed on March 25, 2015, 50% of the bourse's shares will be offered to Kuwait's citizens. The remaining stock will be split between government entities, which will be entitled to own between 6% and 24 % of the bourse's shares, while a company with experience in managing bourses may own from 26% to 44%.
