Nahdi Medical Company was the biggest on the IPO list, garnering a collection of SAR 5.12 billion on the Tadawul All Share Index (TASI), followed by Public Investment Fund-backed Elm Company at SAR 3.07 billion.

Other prominent listings were Al Masane Al Kobra Mining Co. (AMAK) and Retal Urban Development Co., which raised SAR 1.25 billion and SAR 1.44 billion, respectively.

The Nomu – Parallel Market – an alternative stock exchange with lighter listing requirements, particularly for SMEs, saw 10 IPOs raise SAR 2.4 billion in proceeds, including seven direct listings.

Tadawul chief of listing Nayef Al-Athel said there remains a healthy pipeline of companies looking to join the exchange, mainly buoyed by strong market movements across the utilities, energy, and healthcare sectors.
