Target fair share price for STC is at SR 52

Press release
Published June 1st, 2011 - 07:27 GMT

In a report issued by Riyadh Capital Group this week, STC’s International Operations are expected to contribute some 50% of the total revenues, up from the current 34%.  

To achieve this, STC will invest in high growth markets, increase its stake in existing subsidiaries and seek attractive acquisition opportunities. The report also reiterated that the buy rating at SR 52 is currently under its fair price. 

The Riyadh Capital report sees that the reduction of the distribution of dividends does not reflect reduction or diminishing profits as much as it is a sound decision to achieve further growth in the future. The Company’s sound strategic investment in conserving cash will facilitate long-term growth.

The report projects that STC will make more acquisitions in the short term in the Middle East and will undergo reinvestment operations despite its ability to borrow after the Company announced last week a $1.2 billion Shariah compliant financing deal for its Indonesian operation AXIS to finance its mega expansion plan there.
