stc has ranked first among the communications and IT companies as per the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) classification of Forbes magazine, with its brand value growth of 16% year-on-year to reach US$10.6 billion.

The Saudi digital enabler also advanced seven positions globally to rank 184th Most Valuable Brand in the Middle East and Africa (MEA) for 2022.

The global progressive ranking came in as a conclusion of the recent achievements performed by the company, especially after stc successful secondary public offering of its 100.2 million shares, which represented 5.01% of its shares by the Public Investment Fund. The offering represented a significant achievement for stc as a joint stock company, as it led to enhancing the liquidity of its shares, making it accessible to a larger group of investors, and diversifying its investments and strategy in investing in various fields, including the financial technology (FinTech) after stcpay obtained its license as a digital bank from the Central Bank of Saudi Arabia (SAMA).
