Egypt Kuwait Holding Company
Egypt Kuwait Holding Company (EKHO.CA on the Egyptian Exchange and EKHOLDING on the Kuwait Stock Exchange) was founded in 1997 by a consortium of prominent Kuwaiti and Egyptian businessmen. Over the past two decades, the company has established itself as one of the MENA region’s leading and fastest-growing investment companies, cultivating a diversified portfolio of investments that spans 19 companies and a wide variety of sectors, including fertilizers and petrochemicals, energy, cement production, insurance, information technology, transport and infrastructure. The past decade in particular has seen the company flourish as the countries of the Arab world began to liberalize their economies, opening doors for private sector investments in strategic sectors that had once been off limits.
Our portfolio of companies currently employs over 4,000 people and has the potential for ongoing job creation as companies and investments mature. As long-term investors, we take pride in growing the businesses in which we invest and positively contributing to the economic
growth of the region.
EKH has deployed its resources in a manner that has largely shielded the company from the full impact of the social and economic upheaval that has characterized its operating environment during the past five years. The company’s ability to drive revenue growth and margin expansion across its investment portfolio is a testament to the resilience of its strategy and the dedication of its management teams.
While maintaining the growth and profitability of its investments, EKH also recognizes the importance of being a responsible investor and leading by example. The company works to minimize the environmental impact of all its business operations and promotes the conversion of businesses and households to natural gas through its investment in NatEnergy, a leading Egyptian gas distribution business.
Through its ongoing support for Injaz Egypt, an organization working to bridge the gap between the education system and the private sector, EKH has positively impacted 400,000 Egyptian students in more than 451 public schools and 21 universities in 26 governorates since 2003.
