Saudi Arabia Retail Report Q1 2015

BMI View: As a market with substantial untapped potential and a vibrant economy, Saudi Arabia isextremely attractive to foreign retailers. Further opportunities are likely to arise in 2015 with theannouncement that the kingdom plans to open up its stock market to international investors, giving themaccess to its USD530bn bourse. In November 2014, the retail portion of the SAR22.5bn (USD6bn) initialshare sale by Saudi Arabia's National Commercial Bank was 23 times subscribed. The retail portioncomprised 15% of the bank's stock.

Retail groups in Saudi Arabia have generally targeted the three largest urban commercial areas - Jeddah,Riyadh and Dammam/Khobar/Dhahran ('the triplet cities') - but they are now moving into other areas. UAEbasedconglomerate Landmark Group's fashion brand Citymax/Max opened its 100th outlet at Al RoudahPlaza, Dammam, in 2014, but is present in 36 cities and towns throughout the kingdom, with plans toexpand further.
