We believe that STAT has unparalleled capital markets experience in the Kingdom. Our team has been active in the Saudi capital markets for over a decade, leading on bespoke and first of its kind transaction. Our capital markets team affords clients full service on all fronts and ranges.
Our ECM team has extensive experience advising on a full range of equity and equity linked transactions, including initial public offerings, rights issues, private placements or debt capitalizations, as well as advising on securities law and corporate governance issues. With a depth of experience that stretches back to the early days of the Capital Market Law, the role of our team members in the development of capital markets in Saudi Arabia is unmatched. Among other things, our lawyers played an instrumental role in the development of the capital markets techniques that now routinely drive capital-raising transactions in Saudi Arabia and had prominent input into the Saudi securities regulations.
