The GCC is seeing a large increase in demand for Initial Public Offerings (IPOs), a reflection of the region's efforts to diversify and strengthen their economies.

In the first half of 2022, Saudi Arabia has had a record year with the number of listings already exceeding last year. The Saudi Stock Exchange has announced that it has received more than 70 listing applications for both the main index TASI as well as the parallel index, Nomu. And in the UAE there have been several high profile IPOs in recent months including SALIK & DEWA with more expected in the coming months.

An IPO is a major event in the life of an organisation and it can take years of preparation to get ready. The board plays an important role in preparing the organisation for this event and in ensuring its success.
