The prescription from selling secondary equity at IPO stage was one of the main reasons many companies decided to go abroad for their listing. GMS is a great example of this as the main purpose of the IPO was to allow the Private Equity owners, Gulf Capital, to exit part of their investment.

Discussing the regional private equity developments. Regulators can do a lot to support the market; On one hand allow or make it easier to take companies private. On the other, allow companies to IPO, while selling less than the current 55%. 25-35% should be optimal from a liquidity perspective.
