APPENDIX 229



The Saudi economy maintains a positive outlook, enhancing the
investment case for the TAS. Strong GDP growth expected in
2012 is combined with low debt levels, strong reserves and
continued government infrastructure spending, making the Saudi
economy resilient to any global slowdown. Despite the good
market performance in 1Q12, the TAS remains at a discount to
historic valuations with good earnings growth supporting upside
potential of the market.
Saudi Economy remains in an enviable position
Through a combination of higher than expected income from petrochemical
sales, continued infrastructure spending and a buoyant domestic economy, GDP
expanded by 6.8% in 2011, the fastest rate in eight years. Going forward, the
economic outlook remains encouraging, even though growth may see some
moderation in 2012 due to oil prices retreating somewhat. The MF expects
economic growth to marginally slow down to 6.0% in 2012.
With SR270bn of construction contracts awarded in 2011, more than double the
value in 2010 and surpassing the previous high of SR207bn in 2009, this should
support growth in the coming years as these projects are executed. We expect
ongoing infrastructure spending by the government to continue to drive the
domestic economy in 2012.
Saudi market profitability to exceed SR100bn for the first time
Due to strong growth from the domestically focused and defensive sectors such
as Cement, Telecoms, Retail and Banks, coupled with high absolute profits from
the Petrochemical sector, we believe profitability for the listed companies should
exceed SR100bn for the first time in 2012. We expect net income of the listed
companies to grow by 18% YoY in 2012 to SR112bn. The listed Saudi Banking
sector, accounting for 29% of the free float weight of the TAS, is expected to
record YoY profit growth of 10%, equivalent to net income of SR28bn
TAS well positioned to grow, although risks exist
We believe the Saudi market is well positioned to grow both in the short and
medium-to-long term. The TAS is currently trading at 15.2x trailing P/E, below
its historic average of 17.5x and the 20.0x valuation for similar frontier and
emerging markets. This compelling valuation coupled with the good profit growth
expectations for the market and limited correlation with other mainstream
emerging market economies, we believe, leads to a compelling investment case
for the TAS.
However, we note that the continued global economic uncertainty poses a risk to
the Saudi Arabian economy. While progress has been made towards resolving
the Eurozone debt crisis, a permanent solution still remains elusive. Similarly,
growth concerns in the US and emerging economies continues to weigh on
global sentiment. All these factors have a potential to hold back Saudi Arabia's
growth momentum with lower oil demand and prices the key initial trigger.

NCBC Recommendations
Exhibit 1: Summary of stock coverage
Stock Current Rating PT (SR) Comments
Al Rajhi (1120.
SE)
Overweight 90.2 Al Rajhi's loan book is likely to grow faster than industry peers benefitting from its
large deposit base. Although the bank's margins are contracting due to current low
interest rates, the bank will benefit from its lower cost of funds in the long run which
will support NSCI.
Arab National
(1080.SE)
Neutral 32.9 We believe ANB's lower loan growth and compressed margins is likely to keep its
total operating income growth muted. However, its improved asset quality is a key
positive which is likely to offset the muted total operating income.
AlBilad
(1140. SE)
Neutral 21.4 Albilad's retail focus would enable a faster growth in its net loans and increase its
NSCI for 2012. In addition, strong non-interest income and improved asset quality
is likely to add to bottom-line. However, operating costs remains a concern for its
profitability.
BJAZ
(1020. SE)
Neutral 19.6 BJAZ's top-line is likely to benefit from both strong loan growth and fee income
aided by strong brokerage revenue from increasing trading volumes on the
Tadawul. However, we believe the potential gains from the surge in market activity
have been priced-in.
.
Saudi
Fransi
(1050. SE)
Overweight 38.3 BSF's retail focus is likely to grow its loan books as well as maintain NIMs. This will
keep its NSCI strong. Although the retail focus will increase operating costs, we
believe strong top-line growth and better asset quality will offset the impact of that
on the bottom-line.
Riyad Bank
(1010. SE)
Overweight 33.2 RBL's strong corporate and retail presence is likely to benefit the bank to expand
its credit portfolio and improving its asset quality. n addition, the bank's aim to
maintain margins is likely to enable the bank to post double digit net earnings
growth from 2013.
SABB
(1060. SE)
Overweight 40.5 We expect SABB's total operating income in 2012 to be driven by loan volumes
and strong fee income. In addition, stable operating expenses and lower provision
charges will enable it to marginal growth in net income.
SAIB
(1030. SE)
Neutral 18.2 SAB's diversification strategy to grow retail loans will benefit the bank in long term.
However, stiff competition from established players may pressurize its net interest
margins in the near term..
Samba
(1090.SE)
Overweight 60.6 The bank's ability to post relatively strong profitability despite having a conservative
approach keeps us positive on the stock. As the high-yielding corporate bonds
mature, Samba will refocus on expanding its loan book and therefore maintain
profitability.
Saudi Hollandi
(1040.SE)
Overweight 32.2 SHB is likely to grow its loan books benefitting from its microfinance initiative. This
is also likely to improve its bottom-line. However, we are concerned about SHB's
reliance on Tier II subordinated debt for capital adequacy. Considering stringent
laws of Basel III, the bank might need to increase its equity which would limit future
dividend payouts.
SABIC
(2010.SE)
Overweight 124.5 SABIC benefits from its diversified product mix, an integrated production flow, wide
geographical reach and continued feedstock cost advantage at its facilities in Saudi
Arabia. At current levels, we believe the stock offers an attractive investment
opportunity considering the earnings growth potential and the company's sustained
focus on expansion in different product lines and geographies.
Sipchem
(2310.SE)
Overweight 26.7 n 2011, Sipchem's operational efficiency improved as all of its plants (Phase 1 and
2) were operating at their designed capacities, thereby offering full benefits of an
integrated product flow. Resultant improvement in profitability is expected to drive
the company's earnings in 2012E.

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY NCB CAPITAL
MAY 2012
Exhibit 1: Summary of stock coverage
Stock Current Rating PT (SR) Comments
SAFCO
(2020.SE)
Overweight 212.7 The company's high margins, low capex requirements and short cash conversion
cycle result in high free cash flows and thereby high dividend payments. We
believe continued strength in demand for fertilizers and the SAFCO 5 project would
remain attractive in the long run.
NIC (Tasnee)
(2060.SE)
Neutral 36.7 Tasnee is the only titanium dioxide (TiO2) pigment producer in the Middle East and
is monetizing its low-cost feedstock advantage through its petrochemicals
business. Continued rise in TiO2 prices could support 2012E earnings growth;
however, petrochemical prices are likely to remain weak. Any positive earnings
surprises due to higher-than-expected selling prices in the titanium dioxide
business and positive news flow related to the ongoing petrochemical projects are
key stock price catalysts.
Sahara
(2260.SE)
Neutral 18.5 Sahara's 2012E performance is expected to be driven by the full-year contribution
from its Al Waha plant, which commenced operations in April 2011. Furthermore,
three new start-ups producing acrylates, caustic soda, ethylene dichloride and
superabsorbent polymers are likely to support the company's 2013E earnings.
However, poor earnings from the Al Waha project in 2H11 raises concerns over
Sahara's operational ability.
Yansab
(2290.SE)
Neutral 48.2 We are optimistic on the company's future earnings growth due to its low cost
structure and growing demand from emerging economies. However, we believe the
current valuation of stock factors in all positives associated with the company and
offers limited upside potential. Moreover, continued uncertainty over economic
conditions in Europe (the key end market) weigh heavily on Yansab's near-term
earnings outlook.
Saudi Kayan
(2350.SE)
Neutral 18.7 A diversified product mix and strong links with SABIC are key positives for the
stock. However, poor performance in 4Q11 indicates Saudi Kayan is facing some
technical issues and is not able to manage the integrated product flow as
anticipated earlier. In our opinion, the company's ability to ramp up production at
full capacity is imperative for growth in future earnings.
Petrochem
(2002.SE)
Underweight 19.7 The company is scheduled to commence operations in 2Q12 and would be
entering into ethylene and propylene derivatives through a JV with Chevron
Phillips. However, prevailing demand and weakness in pricing are likely to restrict
earnings growth in 2012E. Any update on the project commencement would be a
key catalyst for the stock price.
Yamamah
Cement
(3020.SE)
Neutral 55.8 Strong demand in Riyadh and the ability to sell in different regions are the main
advantages. However, high utilization rate and declining stock level are the key
negatives.
Eastern Cement
(3080.SE)
Neutral 59.1 Shifting focus to domestic market due to export, but limitation on exports remains
key downside. Still focused on Eastern region for sales.
Yanbu Cement
(3060.SE)
Neutral 75.2 Demand shift from Central to the western region is key advantage. The company is
located close to the region's main projects. n addition, it has a new line of 3mn
tons
Saudi Cement
(3030.SE)
Neutral 82.7 Based in the Eastern region, away from most of the key demand centers. However,
Its high stock level, excess capacity and re-operating its old lines are positives.
Southern
Cement
(3050.SE)
Neutral 99.5 Well positioned for Jizan Economic City in the South. New facility near Makkah with
1.5mn tons should also help. High stock level and excess capacity supports the
outlook.
Qassim Cement
(3040.SE)
Neutral 81.4 Lowest cost cement producer in the country with very low inventory levels. Lack of
capacity expansion plans could limit growth.
Jarir
(4190.SE)
Neutral 152.0 Plans to almost double number of stores, coupled with a 50% IT market share,
provide strong platform for the stock. Low liquidity and declining price of laptops a
concern. Store openings the key catalyst for the stock. Valuation is somewhat
stretched at 14.2x 2012e P/E.

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY NCB CAPITAL

Stock Current Rating PT (SR) Comments
Al-Hokair
(4240.SE)
Neutral 68.0 Al Hokair is undergoing aggressive international expansion in former Soviet Union
countries such as Kazakhstan and Azerbaijan. We believe this comes with
increased risks vs. its Saudi business. We believe the valuation is not attractive at
11.2x 2013e P/E.
Al-Othaim
(4001.SE)
Overweight 115.0 Al Othaim is the number two food retailer in the KSA. It is well positioned to
increase share as market shifts to organized retailing. Entrance of foreign players
and rising COGS are key risks. Store expansion is key catalyst for the stock.
Ongoing RE acquisition is holding back the stock.
Savola
(2050.SE)
Overweight 39.1 Food retail business is expanding aggressively with margins expected to increase
as buying power strengthens. Food business continues to take market share and
expand geographically across the region. Move to a holding company may unlock
value.
Almarai
(2280.SE)
Neutral 60.4 Geographic expansion of the bakery and juice businesses and the start of
operations at the new poultry venture are key drivers for the stock. Our concerns
are on the pace of progress at poultry, as well as the returns which can be gained
on this SR4bn investment.
Saudi Telecom
Co.
(7010.SE)
Overweight 50.2 Key positives of the stock include its dominance in DSL and its higher and more
secure ARPU levels. Key concerns on the stock are focused on the limited
information available on its international operations as well as FX exposure through
its international investments.
Mobily
(7020.SE)
Overweight 75.5 Key positives of the stock include its dominance in wireless internet access and its
focused strategy. Key concerns on the stock are focused on its declining ARPU
levels and acquisition costs of new customers.
Zain KSA
(7030.SE)
Neutral 7.0 Key positives of the stock include its attractive and innovative packages and
increasing market share. Key concerns on the stock are focused on its high debt
levels and the financing of this as well as ownership concerns.
Saudi Electricity
(5110.SE)
Neutral 15.3 The new tariff structure on industrial, commercial and government customers came
into effect on July 1, 2010. This had a significant impact on the company's
profitability, which we believe the market has already priced into the stock. Going
forward, the key risks include rising cost of energy purchased from independent
producers as well as an increase in depreciation expense.
Dar Al Arkan
(4300.SE)
Neutral 10.8 Dar Al Arkan is currently developing a number of capital-intensive projects;
however, banks and financial institutions could be reluctant to lend to the company
due to allegations of a crisis on its website. Furthermore, investors' perception,
which has been impacted by weak earnings and lack of transparency over the last
few years, could improve if management provides further insight into its land bank.
The stock outperformed the TASI index, reflecting the limited upside potential.
Taiba
(4090.SE)
Overweight 27.6 With a portfolio of prime assets, expected revenue growth and improvement in
margins, we believe Taiba's fundamentals, including its status as one of the holiest
cities for Muslims, makes the stock an attractive play in the hospitality sector.
Al-Akaria
(4020.SE)
Neutral 27.3 Good earnings visibility, future growth potential and a large land bank are positives;
however, these are partially offset by a low ROE and risk of excess office supply in
Riyadh.

Global economic growth slowed in 2011 as the Euro zone
continued to struggle with the sovereign debt crisis and the pace of
the US recovery remained muted. Saudi Arabia withstood global
headwinds in 2011 and posted its highest rate of economic growth
since 2003 at 6.8%. Although due to the high base effect GDP
growth is expected to slow to 6.0% in 2012 (MF), the Saudi
economy remains in a strong position.
Real non-oil GDP increased 7.7% in 2011, outpacing the 4.3% growth in real oil
GDP. Manufacturing (15.0%), construction (11.6%), and Transport &
Telecommunications (10.1%) were the leaders in the non-oil economy.
Moreover, King Abdullah announced a SR500bn social spending package,
which included a two-month basic salary bonus to all public sector workers, rise
in housing loans and increase in healthcare spending. This helped in boosting
domestic consumption, which expanded by 10.7% (in current prices) in 2011, up
from the 8.1% growth recorded in 2010.
A sustained increase in government spending since 2009 has also helped boost
non-oil GDP in the Kingdom. Most of the increase in expenditure has been
aimed at improving human and physical infrastructure. After increasing 23% in
2011, the government is set to increase expenditure by around 19% in 2012
(over the budgeted figure for 2011). Expectations of stable oil prices around the
US$100/bbl level is likely to help the Kingdom support its fiscal position even as
it funds more non-oil expansion.

n 2011, Saudi Arabia benefited from increased oil output as production was
increased to fill the gap caused by the unrest in Libya. Production peaked at
close to 9.9mn bpd in August 2011 before decreasing towards the end-2011.The
increase in oil production and relatively sustained strength in oil prices helped
increase GDP growth and strengthen government balances further. According to
the MF, the fiscal surplus grew to 15.2% of the GDP in 2011 from 6.6% in 2010.
The impact of higher oil prices and production was also evident in export
earnings, with goods and services exports increasing 36.7% in 2011 (MF).

Separately, inflation remained relatively elevated in 2011 due to rising food
inflation and higher domestic rents. The rent related component of the
Consumer Price ndex (CP) increased 7.8%, followed by food price inflation
(5.2%). As a result, overall CP rose 5.0%. However, in 2012, lowering of global
food prices since the high of 1Q11 is set to ease domestic inflation, especially
with a high base effect also coming into play; the MF expects domestic inflation
to moderate to around 4.8% in 2012.

Government continues to be proactive in stimulating growth
As in previous years, the Saudi Arabian government continued its expansionary
fiscal policy in 2011 to promote growth, and improve human and physical
infrastructure. Actual expenditure (SR804bn) during 2011 was 39% higher than
the budgeted figure (SR580bn).A large part of this increase can be attributed to
King Abdullah's SR500bn social spending package announced during the first
half of the year. The package was primarily intended to address income levels
and social welfare issues like healthcare and housing (especially for low income
individuals). SR250bn has been allocated for housing alone; the money will be
spent over the next few years in constructing 500,000 new housing units.
Encouragingly, despite this fiscal expansion, Saudi Arabia's budget registered a
surplus of SR306bn as high oil revenues more than offset higher spending. At
the same time, the Kingdom managed to reduce overall gross debt significantly.
Thus, while major global economies are grappling with failing fiscal health, the
Kingdom continues to consolidate finances with a rise in fiscal surplus, declining
debt burden, and higher foreign reserves (according to MF data, gross official
reserves increased to US$537bn in 2011 from US$443.7bn in 2010).
Meanwhile, in order to support liquidity and maintain low cost for borrowers, the
Saudi Arabian Monetary Agency (SAMA) maintained a stable monetary policy by

Resilient financial sector
Banking sector fundamentals remain sound
Saudi Arabian banks have continued to exhibit strong liquidity measure, hence,
it is poised to support stronger demand for loans in 2012. The Saudi banking
sector has among the lowest loan-to-deposit ratios in the Gulf, and is minimally
exposed to real estate. Domestic banks have strong financial ratios, with NPLs
at 3% (of total loans), capital adequacy ratio of 17.3% (of the risk-weighted
assets), and return on assets at 1.9%.
Bank loan growth, to the private sector, rose to around 11.0% in 2011 compared
to 4.8% in 2010. Although credit growth is picking up gradually from negative
levels in 2009, the pace of growth is likely to accelerate as the economy
strengthens.
KSA successfully launches project sukuk
The Saudi Arabian sukuk market has grown significantly in recent years, and
has the potential to become a major source of funding for the corporate sector.
Leading blue chip names, notably Saudi Electricity Co. and Saudi Basic
ndustries Corp. (SABC), have repeatedly tapped the market to raise fresh
funds.
The sukuk market gained further momentum in 2011 after witnessing strong
growth in 2010, with six new issuances worth US$4.1bn. n September 2011, the
Kingdom successfully launched the world's first project sukuk, which was worth
SR3.7bn, for Saudi Aramco Total Refining and Petrochemical Company
(SATORP), a joint venture between Saudi Aramco and Total (a leading
multinational energy company).The momentum in the sukuk markets has
continued in 2012 with the Saudi Arabian General Authority for Civil Aviation
(GACA) launching the Kingdom's first ever sovereign guaranteed sukuk worth
SR15bn in January. The Saudi Arabian Stock Exchange, Tadawul, currently has
a secondary trading platform for sukuk with eight listed issuances as of
December 2011. The Kingdom is looking at the possibility of financing various
infrastructure projects through sukuk issuance.

GCC peers due to its relatively strong economic and structural fundamentals.
For example, the Abu Dhabi All Shares ndex fell 12.0%, German DAX 30
declined 17.0%, and Nikkei 225 was down 12.0% in 2011.
The equity market in Saudi Arabia has made a strong start in 2012, although of
late some this has been negated. We believe much of the reason behind the
good start is due to local factors such as the Makkah and Madinah
compensation monies from compulsory purchase orders being redirected into
the equity markets. This, alongside investors moving assets out of real estate in
to equities as well as improving global sentiment in 1Q12 aided the strong
performance in this period. The YTD peak occurred on April 3rd when the
market was up 23%. However since then, the market has been down for five
weeks with it stabilizing at around the 7,200 level at the beginning of May. This
correction can be attributed to the renewed fears over Europe due to the
outcome of the Greek and French elections, concerns over the economic
slowdown in China and the normal summer lull which occurs in Saudi Arabia.

Significant expansion in TASI volumes/value traded
YoY, there has been a significant increase in the volumes and average daily
value traded. YTD, the average value traded has averaged SR10.7bn, more
than double the SR4.4bn recorded in 2011 and compared to the SR3bn in 2010.
The total value of shares traded peaked at SR21.6bn in March 2012, the highest
since March 2007. Off the back of the points mentioned above, there has been a
renewed level of interest in the local equity markets from local retail investors,
leading to this increase in activity.













Government budgets for surplus in 2012
The government's primary focus over the past few years has been to boost
infrastructure to foster a strong diversified economy. Government support has
become more pronounced over the last couple of years as it has undertaken
stimulus measures due to falling oil prices and continued with its long-term
diversification agenda at the same time. Figures from the recently announced
budget for 2012 indicate that the government has allocated a total of SR265bn,
or 38.4%, of total expenditure for new and ongoing projects. Apart from
budgetary outlays, continued commitment to the five economic cities also
reflects the government's objective to boost industrial and employment in the
economy.
The 2012 budget continues to focus on improving human and physical
infrastructure, with budgeted expenditure set to increase 19.0% to SR690bn
compared to the budgeted figure of SR580bn for 2011. However, this figure is

lower than the actual outlay of SR804bn in 2011.As in the previous years, the
budget statement identified health, education and transport as the priority
sectors. Education and training have received 24.4%, or SR168.6bn, of total
budgetary spending. Allocations to transportation, telecommunications and
health increased to SR121.7bn or 17.6% of total budgeted spending.
nterestingly, for the first time since 2008, the government has budgeted for
surplus in 2012. The budget estimates revenues at SR702bn and a surplus of
SR12bn, the first projected surplus since 2008.

While inflation remained elevated in 2011 due to rising prices of food and
housing related items, it has shown signs of moderation in recent months. n
addition, the government has been providing price subsidies on a range of basic
goods such as food and electricity to hold back inflation.
However, the new Nitaqat labor quota system introduced in November 2011,
poses wage-push inflation risks. Under the system, firms are required to hire
relatively expensive local workers to improve their Nitaqat ranking. This is in
addition to the already increased minimum wages to SR3,000 for public sector
employees.
Monetary policy will also put upward pressure on inflation as SAMA is expected
to keep interest rates low, in line with US Federal Reserve's discount rate to
maintain the Riyal dollar peg.

However, KSA's economy remains exposed to challenges
Strong growth in the non-oil sector has been instrumental in providing support to
the overall economy for the last couple of years. While this trend is encouraging,
the Kingdom's economy is still reliant on crude oil exports. This exposes the
economy to the risk of adverse oil price movement. Oil and related sectors
continue to contribute around 90% of total government revenues. Therefore,
even though the Kingdom continues to enjoy an overall fiscal surplus, non-oil
fiscal deficit (as share of non-oil GDP) has surged to 75.1% in 2011 from 20.0%
in 2002.

Although oil prices look to remain stable in 2012, ongoing concerns over the
health of the global economy may lead to unexpected pricing pressure. On the
other hand, although beneficial to the Saudi Arabian economy in the short-term,
a steady increase in oil prices may pose risks to global growth, which, in turn,
could adversely impact KSA's economy in the medium term.
Bank credit remains subdued
Total credit growth rose to 10.5% in 2011, after increasing 5.2% in 2010. Even
though growth has picked up, it is well below the peak of around 30.0% during
200408. This trend could be due to the stringent lending norms adopted by
banks. Banks have been reluctant to restart lending, and have been focusing on
building up their capital adequacy levels. ntroduction of salary caps by the
central bank has also discouraged lending. Currently, total monthly loan
repayments cannot exceed 30% of the borrower's monthly salary.
However, lending is expected to pick up in 2012 as business confidence revives
and the economy continues to grow. SAMA's role in ensuring stable liquidity in
the banking system has also helped to support confidence.

Economic outlook remains encouraging; global risks persist
Despite strong global headwinds, the growth of the Saudi Arabian economy in
2011 was the fastest since 2003. Much of this growth is ascribed to an increase
in oil production and continued high prices. Going forward, the outlook remains
encouraging; even though growth may see some moderation in 2012 as
government spending reduces and oil prices stabilize. The MF expects
economic growth to marginally slowdown to 6.0% in 2012. This GDP growth,

coupled with ongoing government initiatives should leads to a strong outlook for
the Saudi economy.
However, global economic and geo-political risks continue to weigh on the
economic sentiment. Risks from the European sovereign debt crisis continue
with the recent results of the French and Greek elections bringing doubt upon
the current austerity driven solution. Similarly, in the US, while growth
momentum has picked up in recent months, it has not been enough to bring
down high unemployment levels, which continues to be above the 8% mark.
Even in emerging markets, tight monetary policy over 2010-11 to tame inflation
has led to a deceleration in growth. All this global uncertainty has the potential to
adversely impact economic growth in the Kingdom, primarily through the impact
of lower hydrocarbon prices.

The TAS has seen a substantial increase in activity YTD with
average daily value traded up 139% YoY to SR10.7bn.The index
was up 23% at its peak, although has fallen back somewhat, and is
now up 13% as of May 9, 2012 at around the 7,200 level. Despite
the strong start to the year, the market remains attractive at 15.2x
trailing P/E against the average of 17.5x. With the growth in market
earnings remaining strong in the coming years, we believe there is
a compelling investment case for the local market.
The Saudi market has outperformed the majority of regional peers in 2012 YTD.
n fact, all GCC markets, except Qatar's DSM, are trading at higher levels in
2012 YTD. The good growth in earnings across the region in 1Q12 has helped in
keeping investor sentiment high. The TAS was up 12.5% as of 9 May 2012,
second only to Dubai, which rose 13.8% during the same period. Qatar,
however, is down 2.1% YTD.

Saudi market takes center stage
Among regional markets, we believe the Saudi market offers a compelling value
proposition largely due to its strong macroeconomic fundamentals. The Kingdom
has the largest and most diverse economy with a strong outlook with the market
also the largest in terms of market capitalization and liquidity. Short-term factors
such as reasonable valuations, recommencement of margin lending by banks
investors moving out of Real Estate, have been aiding the TAS's positive
momentum YTD in 2012. The index reached a three-and-a-half year high at
7930.6 on April 4, 2012. We believe the rise in volumes YTD also indicate an
improvement in investor confidence in the Kingdom. Volumes are trading at
substantially elevated levels compared to the previous three years; average
daily value traded reached a five-year high of SR21.6bn on March 19, 2012.
TAS's current share in GCC value traded increased to around 90% during 1Q
12 from 83% in 2011 and 58% in 2008.
Aggregate market earnings grew 22% to SR95bn (USD25bn) in 2011, led by the
petrochemical sector (net income up 37.5%). We expect market earnings to
grow by 18% in 2012e, exceeding the SR100bn level for the first time. With the
TAS trading at 15.2x earnings versus an average of 17.5x in the last three

years, the market looks far from expensive. We believe the combination of an
inexpensive valuation and steady earnings growth provides a positive outlook for
the TAS.

The key risk to our positive outlook on the TAS is the pace of recovery of the
global economy. f this is much slower than expected, this in turn could lead to a
slowdown in oil demand and subsequently oil prices. Furthermore, the economy
also remains vulnerable to the challenges of inflationary pressures especially
given the recent upward trend in housing-related inflation and elevated global
food prices
TAS marginally lower in 2011
TAS's performance (down 3.1% YoY) was mixed relative to the developed and
emerging markets in 2011. Within the emerging markets it outperformed Brazil,
China and ndia; however it underperformed compared to markets such as
Russia and South Africa. Ongoing concerns on the pace of the global recovery
in general and the debt issues in Europe in particular were the main points of
concern in 2011.
From a global perspective, stock markets have generally moved up in 1Q12 on
positive US economic data and an improvement in liquidity in Europe. At the end
of 1Q12, trading in five of the seven GCC indices was higher versus the start of
2012.

Sector performance in 2011: Slowdown in petrochemicals and
banking; cement and retail strong
The TAS was down 3.1% in 2011 with mixed results across sectors. Major
sectors, including petrochemicals, banking and telecom (combined share of
65.1% of TAS's free float weighted market capitalization), witnessed a
correction in 2011 after two consecutive years of gains. However, this was offset
by significant growth in retail (3.1% of free float) and cement (8.1% of free float).
Both sectors are highly defensive and largely focused on demand from domestic
consumers. Hence, they were relatively resilient to global economic issues and
benefited from an increase in consumer spending and strong underlying
economic growth in Saudi Arabia. A high dividend yield also fueled the rally in
cement stocks.

KSA STOCK MARKET NCB CAPTAL
MAY 2012


Saudi Arabia: Strongest regional market
n terms of sector diversity, market capitalization, market turnover and liquidity,
the Saudi stock market is the biggest in the region. The market is mostly driven
by individual investors, with retail investors accounting for around 95.0% of the
turnover in April 2012. By April 2012, institutional trading (either mutual funds or
swap trades) accounted for 5% of the total trading on the market as opposed to
6.6% a year earlier. However, potential plans to provide greater access to
qualified foreign investors and rising liquidity levels offers attractive proposition
for greater participation of institutional investors.
KSA accounts for 54% of GCC market capitalisation and 90%
of the turnover
n terms of market capitalization, the Saudi stock market is the largest in GCC,
with a share of about 53.9% at the end of 1Q12. t was followed by Kuwait and
Qatar at 14% and 13.4% respectively.

Over the past few years, the Kingdom accounted for around 70% of the total
value traded in GCC. However, 2012 YTD, its share has increased to around
90%. This discrepancy in Saudi Arabia's share compared to the GCC may be
ascribed to the fact that other regional markets, such as Kuwait, are seeing
heavy trading in stocks that trade below par value

Nominal price highly correlated to performance in 2012
The TAS has seen sharp gains YTD in 2012. The index added 22.1% in 1Q12,
mostly driven by stocks with low nominal prices. Additionally, we believe most
large-cap stocks have underperformed the TAS during the same period.
As per our analysis, there exists an inverse relationship between the nominal
stock price and stock performance YTD. Therefore, stocks with nominal values
up to SR15 are the best performers YTD in 2012 (up 67% on average), while
stocks with nominal values above SR90 rose only 5%, on an average, during the
same period. On an average, stocks with a nominal price above SR35/share
have underperformed the TAS on YTD basis and vice-versa.
We believe this bias towards low nominal stocks is likely to exist as long as the
current trend of high local retail investor participation in the stock market
prevails.

KSA STOCK MARKET NCB CAPTAL
MAY 2012


Continued strong earnings growth in 2012E
Strong earnings growth in 2011
n 2011, earnings for the entire Saudi market grew by 22% YoY to SR94.8bn.
Market net income growth was mainly due to the 38% growth in Petrochemicals
earnings, driven by a rebound in prices as well as new production coming on
stream. Banks' earnings were good with a 17% growth due largely to lower YoY
provisioning. Earnings in the telecom sector were flat, mostly due to FX losses in
3Q11 from STC and continued losses at Zain KSA. Cement net income
increased by 25% YoY due to strong demand and prices.
2012E could continue to see earnings growth
Most of the major sectors should see continued earnings expansion in 2012E.
The Petrochemicals sector is expected to see growth of 18% in net income
despite a weaker demand and price outlook. We believe the prevailing cost
advantage, proximity to Asian markets and the full year contribution from Saudi
Kayan and Sahara's Al Waha plants are key positives for the sector in 2012. The
Banking sector may continue to witness a growth in earnings due to decreasing
provisions and an increase in non-interest income we expect net income
growth of 10%. The Retail sector will benefit from ongoing store expansions and
fiscal support packages this should lead to a 19% increase in net income.

Petrochemicals a key contributor again
As was the case in 2010 and 2011, the Petrochemical sector will likely be the
main driver of earnings growth for the market . The Petrochemicals sector is
expected to see growth of 18% in net income despite a weaker demand and
price outlook. We believe the prevailing cost advantage, proximity to Asian
markets and the full year contribution from Saudi Kayan and Sahara's Al Waha
plants are key positives for the sector in 2012
Progress in Banking sector profitability key
The Banks sector (listed banks) has been on a declining earnings trend for the
past four years after sector earnings peaked in 2006. Since then, declining
brokerage income, and rising impairments for investments and credit provisions
have resulted in weaker net income from 2007-2010. Total deposits are
expected to grow at a CAGR of 13.2% (2011-2015E). Sector loan growth is
expected to grow at a CAGR of 19.6% through 2015E driven by improved
economic activity and corporate sector lending. We expect government funding
to the private sector of approximately SR85bn to complement, rather than crowd
out, bank lending. Growth in short term loans (which account for 75% in

TAS trading below its 17.5x historical average
On a valuation basis, the TAS remains attractive and is currently trading at
around 15.2x trailing P/E against its historic three year average of 17.5x and five
year average of over 18x.

The TAS positioned to grow in the short-medium term
We believe the Saudi market is well positioned to grow both in the short and
medium-to-long term. The TAS is currently trading at 15.2x trailing P/E, below
its historic average of 17.5x and the 20x and above valuation for similar frontier
and emerging markets. This compelling valuation coupled with the good profit
growth expectations for the market and limited correlation with other
mainstream emerging market economies, we believe, leads to a compelling
investment case for the TAS.
However, we note that the continued global uncertainty poses a risk to the Saudi
Arabian economy. While progress has been made towards resolving the
Eurozone debt crisis, a permanent solution still remains elusive. Similarly,
growth concerns in the US and emerging economies continue to weigh on global
sentiment. All these factors have a potential to derail Saudi Arabia's growth
momentum with lower oil prices the key initial trigger.
Sector valuations range from 13x45x
On a sector level, P/E ranges from 13x for the telecom sector to 45x for the
multi- investment sector. Most of the major sectors currently trade at below their

historical average P/E levels; given the good growth outlook for earnings, we
believe this indicates a good entry point for many of these sectors. Additionally,
we note the following.
x The Petrochemical sector is trading at a P/E of 13x versus its historical
average of 23x. With our expectations of 18% earnings growth for the sector,
we believe this will be one of the stronger performers again in 2012E, helping
to drive the entire market to strong returns.
x Banking/financials is trading at a P/E of 13.8x, below its historical average of
15.5x. We believe the Banking sector will continue to witness a growth in
earnings due to decreasing provisions and an increase in non-interest
income we expect net income growth of 10% in 2012.
x Telecom/T is trading at a P/E of 12.5x. We maintain an overweight rating on
two of the three main stocks in the sector: Mobily and Saudi Telecom
Company.
x The retail sector is trading at a P/E of 15.7x, below its historical average.

Market supported by strong dividend yields
Strong dividend yields for most stocks in 2012E add to our positive outlook for
the Saudi market. Among the stocks under our coverage, the top 15 dividend
yielding companies have 2012E yields ranging from 4.38.4%. Six of the top ten
stocks are cement companies with a stable dividend outlook due to their strong
cash flows. The remaining four stocks, besides offering lucrative yields, are fairly
attractive from a valuation perspective within their respective sectors (telecom,
banking and petrochemicals), thus providing potential upside from the current
price levels.

The Saudi banking sector has remained one of the strongest in
terms of profitability, asset quality and capital adequacy in the
GCC. ts strong fundamentals and underpenetrated market offers
significant growth potential.
We are confident of the sector's ability to improve earnings in the medium-term.
We expect the growth in credit to continue in 2012 as banks focus on retail
lending. n 2011, loan books grew 11.6% YoY to SR855bn, while customer
deposits increased 10.7% YoY to SR1,147bn. Total banking assets of the 12
main domestic banks grew 9.2% YoY to SR1,505bn. However, contraction in
NMs resulted in only 1.5% YoY growth in NSC. Nonetheless, strong growth in
non-interest income kept total operating income growth at reasonable levels of
4.6% YoY. Furthermore, decline in provisions by 39% enabled bottom-line
growth of 18.4% YoY.
Due to the retail focus of many banks, branch network and the number of ATMs
increased by 55 and 881 respectively during 2011. With the addition of two new
foreign bank branches, the number of foreign banks operating increased to 11
along with 12 domestic banks.

The Saudi banking sector compared to the GCC.
Considering only listed banks in our analysis, the Saudi banking sector stood
second in terms of total operating income, after UAE during 2009-11. However,
Saudi banks generate higher Return on Equity of 14.4% as compared to UAE
Bank's ROE of 11.6%. Saudi bank's strong fundamentals and higher returns
justify its premium valuation over UAE. Saudi banks trades at a higher P/E of
14.7x compared to the UAE banks P/E of 8.2x.

Exhibits below depict the performance of Saudi banks in terms of net interest
income and net interest margin during 200911. n 2011, net interest income
increased 1.5% YoY against 1.2% YoY decline in 2010, while net interest
margins contracted 15bps over 2010. This was mainly due to faster growth in
loans in the low interest rate environment. Alinma and Albilad's net interest
income grew rapidly by 79.5% and 12.5% YoY respectively, largely due to loan
book expansion. Among larger banks, RBL's net interest income grew 1.3%

respectively.

After remaining steady for three quarters, interest rates in KSA increased
marginally in 4Q11 in line with LBOR. The government maintained the repo rate
and reverse repo rate at 2% and 0.25%, respectively, during the year. We
expect SABOR to remain at low levels until post 2014 when we believe the Fed
will start increasing its benchmark rate.

NCBC recommendations in the sector
The year 2011 witnessed strong growth in loans and improved asset quality.
However, contraction in NIMs due to lower interest rates and increased
competition kept NSCI growth muted. Nonetheless, increased non-interest
income and reduced provisions improved the bottom-line. We expect loan
growth to continue and NIMs to compress, however, the increase in loan volume
is expected to aid NSCI growth. In addition, high trading volumes on the
Tadawul will enable banks to grow its brokerage income particularly for the
smaller banks. Strong fundamentals and improved asset quality of Saudi banks
keep our view positive on the sector.
Exhibit 42: Coverage stocks details
Stock Current Rating PT (SR) Comments
Al Rajhi
(1120. SE)
Overweight 90.2 Al Rajhi's loan book is likely to grow faster than industry peers benefitting from its large
deposit base. Although the bank's margins are contracting due to current low interest
rates, the bank will benefit from its lower cost of funds in the long run which will support
NSCI.
Arab National
(1080.SE)
Neutral 32.9 We believe ANB's lower loan growth and compressed margins is likely to keep its total
operating income growth muted. However, its improved asset quality is a key positive
which is likely to offset the muted total operating income.
AlBilad
(1140. SE)
Neutral 21.4 Albilad's retail focus would enable a faster growth in its net loans and increase its NSCI
for 2012. In addition, strong non-interest income and improved asset quality is likely to
add to bottom-line. However, operating costs remains a concern for its profitability.
BJAZ
(1020. SE)
Neutral 19.6 BJAZ's top-line is likely to benefit from both strong loan growth and fee income aided
by strong brokerage revenue from increasing trading volumes on the Tadawul.
However, we believe the potential gains from the surge in market activity have been
priced-in.
.
Saudi
Fransi
(1050. SE)
Overweight 38.3 BSF's retail focus is likely to grow its loan books as well as maintain NIMs. This will
keep its NSCI strong. Although the retail focus will increase operating costs, we believe
strong top-line growth and better asset quality will offset the impact of that on the
bottom-line.
Riyad Bank
(1010. SE)
Overweight 33.2 RBL's strong corporate and retail presence is likely to benefit the bank to expand its
credit portfolio and improving its asset quality. n addition, the bank's aim to maintain
margins is likely to enable the bank to post double digit net earnings growth from 2013.
SABB
(1060. SE)
Overweight 40.5 We expect SABB's total operating income in 2012 to be driven by loan volumes and
strong fee income. In addition, stable operating expenses and lower provision charges
will enable it to marginal growth in net income.
SAIB
(1030. SE)
Neutral 18.2 SAB's diversification strategy to grow retail loans will benefit the bank in long term.
However, stiff competition from established players may pressurize its net interest
margins in the near term..
Samba
(1090.SE)
Overweight 60.6 The bank's ability to post relatively strong profitability despite having a conservative
approach keeps us positive on the stock. As the high-yielding corporate bonds mature,
Samba will refocus on expanding its loan book and therefore maintain profitability.
Saudi
Hollandi
(1040.SE)
Overweight 32.2 SHB is likely to grow its loan books benefitting from its microfinance initiative. This is
also likely to improve its bottom-line. However, we are concerned about SHB's reliance
on Tier II subordinated debt for capital adequacy. Considering stringent laws of Basel
III, the bank might need to increase its equity which would limit future dividend payouts.

SABB (formerIy The Saudi British Bank) is an affiIiate of HSBC
Group. The bank commenced operations in 1978 offering
conventionaI and IsIamic products under the brand name of
SABB Amanah. SABB operates 80 branches and 524 ATMs.
The bank aIso has associate companies offering investment
banking soIutions and insurance services.
x Business brief
SABB offers personal, corporate, private and slamic banking as well as
treasury and trade services. During the year 2011, assets and liabilities of
SABB Securities (wholly-owned arm of SABB providing brokerage and
securities services) were transferred to HSBC Saudi Arabia Ltd. (a firm
providing investment banking solutions). This raised SABB's stake in HSBC
Saudi Arabia to 51% from 40% (w.e.f. 1 July 2011). SABB also provides
Sharia'a-compliant insurance products through SABB Takaful (32.5%).
x FinanciaIs
SABB's net income surged 53.4% YoY to SR2.9bn in 2011, mainly driven by
a decline in provisions. The bank's total operating income grew a marginal
1.2% YoY due to a strong 17.6% increase in non-interest income. SABB's
NMs declined 29bps YoY due to its focus on increasing loan volumes (up
14.2% YoY). Consequently, net special commission income declined 6.8%
YoY. However, the decline in operating expenses (8% YoY) and provisions
(61% YoY) helped the bank to offset the impact of subdued top line
performance and post significant growth in profits.
x Recent deveIopments
n March 2012, the bank successfully completed the private placement of
five-year Tier Sukuks amounting SR1.5bn with a coupon rate of SBOR +
1.2%. This will provide long-term funding base, diversify sources of funds and
support its penetration into the retail segment. During the same month, SABB
increased its paid-up capital base by 33% to SR10n by issuing one bonus
share for every three shares held and distributed cash dividends of
SR562.5mn for the year 2011.

Arab NationaI Bank (ANB) commenced operations in the KSA
in 1980, foIIowing the takeover of Arab Bank PLC. The bank
operates a network of 142 IocaI branches and 935 ATMs,

ANB's net income increased 13.6% YoY to SR2.2bn in 2011 despite a
marginal growth of 0.7% in net special commission income and 0.8% in total
operating income. This was mainly due to a 36% YoY decline in loan loss
provisions. ANB's loan book grew 10% YoY; however, lower NMs kept the
growth in net special commission income muted. The bank's non-interest
income grew just 1.1% YoY. Coupled with higher operating expense, ANB's
pre-provision profits fell 3% YoY. However, the significant reduction in
provisions improved the bottom line performance.
x Recent deveIopments
n March 2012, ANB signed an agreement worth SR90mn with Jenan Real
Estate Company to finance company projects. n December 2011, it
announced dividends of SR850mn for the year 2011. n October 2011, the

The Saudi Investment Bank (SAIB) was estabIished in 1976 in
Riyadh and now operates a network of 48 branches and 334
ATMs in KSA. SAIB provides investment banking and other
reIated services such as Iease financing, insurance &
reinsurance, reaI estate financing and financiaI investment.
x Business brief
SAB provides personal, corporate, investment and slamic banking along
with treasury services in KSA. n September 2011, Capital Market Authority
approved a request by Alistithmar Capital (brokerage and investment banking
arm of SAB) to acquire BNP Paribas Asset Management Co. (AMCO,
another subsidiary of SAB) as well as include all licensed activities such as
dealing, managing, arranging, advising, and custody into Alistithmar's
business profile. n December 2011, net assets of AMCO were acquired by
Alistithmar. SAB also offers related services through five associate
companies: AMEX (Saudi Arabia) Ltd, Saudi Orix Leasing Company, Medgulf
KSA, Amlak nternational, and Naeem nvestment Co.
x FinanciaIs
SAB is the only bank amongst its Saudi peers that reported a decline in loan
growth at 12.5% YoY. The bank has reduced its loan book to mitigate
concentration risk. As a result, SAB's net special commission income and
total operating income declined 6.7% and 7.6% YoY, respectively. The
bank's operating costs also rose 12% YoY, increasing its cost-to-income ratio
to 38.6% from 32% in 2010. However, the fall in total operating income and
higher expenses were offset by a steep decline in provisions, which stood at
SR373mn in 2011 compared to SR845mn in 2010 (56% lower YoY). This
enabled the bank to register a significant 64.8% YoY growth in its net profits.
x Recent deveIopments
n March 2012, SAB distributed cash dividends of SR324.5mn for 2011. The
bank distributed dividends for the first time in six years; the last cash
dividends were given to shareholders in 2005. The decline in dividends came
after muted profit growth as the bank increased its provisions for its exposure
to family-owned corporates.

Bank AI Jazira (BJAZ) speciaIizes in IsIamic banking and
investment products in Saudi Arabia. The bank was
estabIished in 1975, foIIowing the takeover of the Saudi
Arabian branches of NationaI Bank of Pakistan. BJAZ
operates a network of 51 branches and 318 ATMs across the
KSA.
x Business brief
BJAZ offers Sharia'a-compliant retail banking, corporate banking and
treasury services. The bank's investment subsidiary, AlJazira Capital (AJC),
is one of the leading brokerage houses in Saudi Arabia in terms of value and
volume traded. BJAZ also operates Aman Real Estate, which acts as a
custodian of collateral in the bank's lending activities. n 2010, the bank
received a government approval to establish a Takaful company with a
capital of SR350mn.
x FinanciaIs
BJAZ's net income grew 10.5 times YoY to SR303mn in 2011, led by an 81%
decline in provisions. ncreasing loan portfolio and growing brokerage income
from higher Tadawul turnover enabled the bank to post a 9.0% growth in net
special commission and 34% increase in fee income. However, a decline in
investment income slightly lowered the growth in total operating income.
With the 24.6% YoY increase, the bank saw one of the highest loan book
growths among the banks in the Kingdom. Customer deposits also grew
significantly at 20.7% YoY.
x Recent deveIopments
n December 2011, BJAZ announced dividend distribution of SR160mn for
the year 2011. n June 2011, BJAZ signed a SR339mn, five-year deal with
Nama Chemicals Company. This financial facility would be used to service an
existing Murabaha loan (SR263mn) and to establish an administrative

The Saudi petrochemical sector is well positioned to withstand any
weakness in demand by capitalizing on its low feedstock cost and
an expanding production base. The full year contribution from
Saudi Kayan and Sahara's Al Waha plant, as well as the
commencement of Petrochem's commercial operations in 2Q12,
should boost the sector's earnings in 2012E. Proximity to growing
Asian markets remains a key positive for petrochemical firms in the
Kingdom.
Global petrochemical prices started to decline in the 2H11 as oil prices fell below
USD100/bbl and demand weakened in key end markets. Poor market conditions
also impacted the earnings of Saudi petrochemical producers during the same
period. However, we believe firms are well placed to withstand the adverse
market conditions given their low production cost as ethane and propane (key
feedstock for petrochemicals) are supplied at reduced prices by Saudi Aramco.
n our opinion, there is little scope of a strong rebound in demand and prices in
the near term as most demand indicators are still weak.
Petrochemical producers in the Kingdom procure ethane at USD0.75/mmbtu,
which is much lower than the global spot prices of over USD2/mmbtu. While
reviewing ethane prices in early 2012, the Oil Ministry decided to keep gas
prices unchanged for the year. Companies receive propane at a price linked to
the discounted rate of naphtha. Though this discount has been reduced
marginally over the years (around 30% in 2011), the procurement cost still
remains attractive for companies relative to their international counterparts.
However, with limited supply of low-cost ethane, Saudi producers are focusing
on mixed-feed crackers. The resultant increase in production costs due to an
anticipated rise in ethane cost (in 2013E) and inclusion of heavier feedstock is
not likely to have a significant impact on the earnings of Saudi producers. This
could be ascribed to an expansion in their production base and access to
growing markets in Asia and the Middle East.
n recent years, petrochemical companies in Saudi Arabia have undertaken
aggressive capex to capitalize on rising demand and their feedstock cost
advantage. According to BM, total ethylene capacity in the Kingdom is expected
to grow to 16.5mn mtpa by 2015 from around 8mn mtpa in 2008. Moreover,
SABC is seeking opportunities to invest in downstream products such as
polyurethanes and polyamides. The company aims to increase R&D spending to
over 2% of sales in forthcoming years from 1% budgeted for 2011. Tasnee is
undertaking projects to add downstream products, such as acrylic acids and
polyols to its petrochemical product mix.
The reducing number of anti-dumping claims in key end markets is favorable for
the earnings outlook. n January 2012, ndia withdrew anti-dumping duties levied
on the Kingdom's polypropylene producers in November 2010. n December
2011, the European Commission revoked anti-dumping and anti-subsidy probes
against polyethylene terephthalate (PET) from Saudi Arabia. n October 2010,
Chinese authorities decided against imposing any duty on Saudi methanol
producers after conducting a year-long investigation. The Chinese government

lowered anti-dumping charges on Sipchem's Butanediol output to 4.5% in
December 2009 from 20.9% in May 2009.
The sector currently comprises 14 listed companies, with SABC being the
largest. SABC is also the largest petrochemical company in the Middle East.
Headquartered in Riyadh, the company's annual production volumes aggregated
67mn mt in 2010 and accounted for 64.3% of total revenues from the
petrochemical sector in KSA in 2011. An uptrend in the earnings of
petrochemical producers continued in 2011. The sector's net income increased
37.5% YoY to SR40.7bn in 2011, driven by higher prices of petrochemicals and
fertilizers, and growth in production volumes.

n 2011, the petrochemical sector's combined revenues (all of the 14
companies) increased 25.4% YoY to SR295.2bn, supported by strong prices
during the first half of the year, additional revenues from new startups (such as
Saudi Kayan and Sahara) and the full year contribution from Yansab and
Sipchem's Phase 2 expansion project. SABC reported a 25.0% YoY rise in
revenues in 2011. Net margins of petrochemical firms expanded to 13.8% in
2011 from 12.6% in 2010. Losses reported by Saudi Kayan, Nama Chemicals,
Petrochem and Alujain impacted the overall earnings growth in 2011.

The Tadawul Petrochemical index declined 4.5% in 2011, after a growth of
19.8% in 2010. This could be ascribed to the political instability in the region
during 1Q11 and ongoing concerns related to the European debt crisis and a
slower-than-expected world economic growth.
Outlook for the Saudi petrochemical sector remains largely positive
Full year contribution from startups Saudi Kayan and Sahara's Al Waha plants
along with the prevailing feedstock advantage strengthen our outlook for the
Kingdom's petrochemical sector in 2012. Furthermore, the scheduled startup at
Petrochem could enable producers to benefit from the rising demand in Asian
economies. However, we believe a strong rebound in demand in the near-term
is unlikely given the ongoing debt concerns in Europe and a slowdown in
China's GDP growth. n our opinion, the sector's feedstock advantage and
proximity to high-growth markets in Asia and the Middle East would continue to
offer support, going forward.

NCBC Recommendations in the Sector
Petrochemical stocks under our coverage universe include SABC, SAFCO,
Sipchem, Tasnee, Yansab, Sahara, Saudi Kayan and Petrochem. Detailed
information on the companies' performance is included in our KSA
Petrochemicals Sector Update released in March 2012.
Exhibit 50: Coverage stocks details
Stock Current Rating PT (SR) Comments
SABC
(2010.SE)
Overweight 124.5 SABC benefits from its diversified product mix, an integrated production flow,
wide geographical reach and continued feedstock cost advantage at its facilities
in Saudi Arabia. At current levels, we believe the stock offers an attractive
investment opportunity considering the earnings growth potential and the
company's sustained focus on expansion in different product lines and
geographies.

Sipchem
(2310.SE)
Overweight 26.7 n 2011, Sipchem's operational efficiency improved as all of its plants (Phase 1
and 2) were operating at their designed capacities, thereby offering full benefits
of an integrated product flow. Resultant improvement in profitability is expected
to drive the company's earnings in 2012E.

SAFCO
(2020.SE)
Overweight 212.7 The company's high margins, low capex requirements and short cash
conversion cycle result in high free cash flows and thereby high dividend
payments. We believe continued strength in demand for fertilizers and the
SAFCO 5 project would remain attractive in the long run.

NC (Tasnee)
(2060.SE)
Neutral 36.7 Tasnee is the only titanium dioxide (TiO2) pigment producer in the Middle East
and is monetizing its low-cost feedstock advantage through its petrochemicals
business. Continued rise in TiO2 prices could support 2012E earnings growth;
however, petrochemical prices are likely to remain weak. Any positive earnings
surprises due to higher-than-expected selling prices in the titanium dioxide
business and positive news flow related to the ongoing petrochemical projects
are key stock price catalysts.

Sahara
(2260.SE)
Neutral 18.5 Sahara's 2012E performance is expected to be driven by the full-year
contribution from its Al Waha plant, which commenced operations in April 2011.
Furthermore, three new start-ups producing acrylates, caustic soda, ethylene
dichloride and superabsorbent polymers are likely to support the company's
2013E earnings. However, poor earnings from the Al Waha project in 2H11
raises concerns over Sahara's operational ability.

Yansab
(2290.SE)
Neutral 48.2 We are optimistic on the company's future earnings growth due to its low cost
structure and growing demand from emerging economies. However, we believe
the current valuation of stock factors in all positives associated with the
company and offers limited upside potential. Moreover, continued uncertainty
over economic conditions in Europe (the key end market) weigh heavily on
Yansab's near-term earnings outlook.

Saudi Kayan
(2350.SE)
Neutral 18.7 A diversified product mix and strong links with SABC are key positives for the
stock. However, poor performance in 4Q11 indicates Saudi Kayan is facing
some technical issues and is not able to manage the integrated product flow as
anticipated earlier. n our opinion, the company's ability to ramp up production
at full capacity is imperative for growth in future earnings.

Petrochem
(2002.SE)
Underweight 19.7 The company is scheduled to commence operations in 2Q12 and would be
entering into ethylene and propylene derivatives through a JV with Chevron
Phillips. However, prevailing demand and weakness in pricing are likely to
restrict earnings growth in 2012E. Any update on the project commencement
would be a key catalyst for the stock price.

Established in 1965, Saudi Arabian Fertilizer Company
(SAFCO) produces ammonia and urea nitrogen-based
fertilizers. The company markets its products in Asia,
America, Australia, Africa and the Middle East countries.
Saudi Basic Industries Corp. (SABIC) holds a 43% stake in
SAFCO.
x Business brief
SAFCO has a urea production capacity over 2.3mn mtpa, the majority of
which is exported. Urea is a key nitrogen-based fertilizer across the globe.
The company also manufactures 2.1mn mtpa of ammonia, most of which is
used as an intermediate raw material for producing urea.
x Financials
n 2011, revenues grew 33.3% YoY to SR5,051mn mainly due to higher
fertilizer prices. Gross margins stood at 74.5% versus the 71.0% reported a
year ago. The company's net profit rose 27.1% to SR4,110mn in 2011. n our
opinion, SAFCO's revenue and net profit for 2012 are likely to remain broadly
in line with 2011 as urea prices are expected to hover around the levels
witnessed last year.
x Recent developments
On 7 December 2011, SAFCO announced the results of the feasibility
studies undertaken for the planned urea plant. The company has decided to
award the engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contract for its
SAFCO 5 project to taly-based Saipem. Construction work is scheduled to
be completed in 26 months (starting from December 2011) and the project is
expected to start commercial operations in 3Q14. The project would add a
total annual production capacity of 1.1mn mt of urea, with the project cost
totaling SR2bn. The company aims to fund the entire project cost through its
own resources. Mr. Abdullah Bin Ali Al Bakr replaced Mr. Fahed Bin Rashed
Al Otaibi as SAFCO's new President on 21 September 2011.

Established in 1999, Saudi International Petrochemical Co
(Sipchem) is engaged in producing petrochemical products
such as methanol, butanediol, carbon monoxide, acetic acid
and vinyl acetate. The company is expanding its product mix
through its Phase III development plan.
x Business brief
Under Phase , Sipchem established a methanol plant with a production
capacity of 1mn tonnes per annum (mtpa) and a butanediol plant with a
capacity of 75k mtpa. Following the completion of the Phase expansion in
3Q10, the company added carbon monoxide (345k mtpa), acetic acid (460k
mtpa) and vinyl acetate (330k mtpa) to its product mix. Sipchem is currently
undertaking its Phase expansion to produce ethylene vinyl acetate (EVA),
low density polyethylene (LDPE), ethyl acetate and special resin grades used
in manufacturing wire and cable products.
x Financials
Sipchem generated SR3,324mn in revenues in 2011 (SR1,993mn in 2010)
driven by the full year contribution from the Phase plants and higher
petrochemical prices. The net income increased 86.7% YoY to SR706mn
benefiting from improved operational efficiencies as all of its plants (Phase
and 2) are operating at their designed capacities, offering full benefits of
integrated product flow.
x Recent developments
n November 2011, Sipchem (through its affiliate, nternational Polymers
Company) secured SR600mn (payable in 10 years) from SDF. The proceeds
would be used to construct the EVA/LDPE plant (200k mtpa), which is
expected to commence commercial operations in 2Q13. n October 2011, it
awarded an EPC contract for the wire and cable plant (a part of the Phase
project) to a South Korean firm, Posco Engineering Co. The construction is
expected to be completed in two years. Sipchem and South Korea's Hanwha
have an equal share in the SR230mn plant. To fund expansion plans,
Sipchem raised SR1.8bn through its first issue of Sukuk in July 2011.

Saudi Kayan Petrochemical Company (Kayan) was
established by SABIC (35% stake) and Al Kayan
Petrochemical (20%) in 2007 to set up a petrochemical
complex in Jubail Industrial City. The plant has the capacity to
produce approximately 6mn mtpa of petrochemical products
each year.
x Business brief
The complex, which is believed to be one of the world's largest integrated
petrochemical plants, manufactures specialized chemicals such as
polycarbonate, bisphenol A and acetone. Kayan had commenced trial
operations at most of its plants (such as olefins, ethylene glycol,
polypropylene, phenolics and high density polyethylene plants) during the
2H10 and January 2011. The company later started commercial operations
at its 12 main plants on 1 October 2011. Experimental runs are expected to
start at the remaining plants in phases during 2012-2013.
x Financials
4Q11 was the first quarter that Kayan reported operating results. However,
despite having a full quarter contribution from its key plants, the company
incurred an operating loss in 4Q11 as its plants were running at a lower
operating rate of 3040%. Kayan reported a net loss of SR250.3mn in 2011
compared to SR14.7mn in 2010 due to higher Zakat provisions and lower
petrochemical prices in 4Q11.
x Recent developments
On 27 March 2012, the company announced it had initiated trial runs at its
ethanolamines (100k mtpa) and ethoxylates (40k mtpa) plants. On 11
February 2012, Kayan announced that its olefins complex and HDPE plant
are operating at normal rates after shutting down for maintenance work
during 1-9 February 2012. The company expects the financial impact of this
temporary shutdown to be reflected in its 1Q12 results.

Yanbu National Petrochemicals Company (Yansab) was
established in 2006 to set up a 4mn mt per annum
petrochemical complex in the Yanbu Industrial City. SABIC
holds a majority stake (51%) in Yansab. The company
commenced commercial operations in March 2010.
x Business brief
Yansab has a diversified petrochemical product mix, including Ethylene
(1.3mn mtpa), Propylene (400k mtpa), Polypropylene (400k mtpa),
Polyethylene (both low and high density with 400k mtpa each) and Mono, Di
and Tri Ethylene Glycol (770k mtpa total). Other products such as Benzene,
Butene, Methyl Tertiary Butyl Ether and Benzene Toluene Xylene have a
total production capacity of close to 375k mtpa.
x Financials
Yansab's revenues grew 65.9% YoY to SR9.7bn in 2011 and net income
increased 89.8% to SR3.2bn driven by higher prices and production volumes.
n 2011, the company enjoyed the full year contribution from its
petrochemical complex, which started commercial operations in March 2010.
Yansab reported a gross profit of SR3,793mn in 2011; this represents a
gross margin of 39.3%, higher than the 37.3% a year earlier. We believe the
current weak demand for petrochemicals in Europe and the anticipated drop
in petrochemical prices would restrict growth in Yansab's earnings in 2012E.
For 2012E, we project revenues of SR9.5bn (flat YoY), net income of SR3bn
(down 6.1% YoY) and gross margin of 39.2% (flat YoY).
x Recent developments
On 17 March 2012, Yansab held its fourth annual general meeting at Yanbu
ndustrial City. The company did not pay any dividend for 2011.

Advanced Petrochemical Company (APPC) was established in
2005. It developed a SR2.9bn integrated propane
dehydrogenation and polypropylene complex in Jubail
Industrial City. The facility has an annual production capacity
of 450k mt of polypropylene. It commenced commercial
operations in 2008.
x Business brief
APPC has an annual production capacity of 450k mt of polypropylene, which
is used in several applications such as manufacturing of fabrics, moldings,
pipes and furniture. APPC operates a propylene plant (with a capacity of
455k mtpa) by using CATOFN-ABB Lumus technology, which converts
propane gas into propylene. The company appointed Vinmar nternational
Limited, Mitsubishi Corporation and Domo N.V to offtake the output from the
complex. Most of the production would be shipped through the ports of
Dammam, Jeddah and Jubail.
x Financials
APPC's revenue grew 37.4% YoY to SR2,791mn in 2011 compared to
SR2,031mn in 2010 due to higher polypropylene prices. This coupled with
reduced operating and financing expenses in 2011 supported the increase in
net income (56.2% YoY to SR512.8mn). APPC's gross margins stood at
20.6% in 2011, up from 19.5% a year ago.
x Recent developments
On 22 February 2012, APPC's shareholders approved the distribution of a
bonus share for every 6.25 shares held, thereby increasing share capital by
16% with the addition of 141.4mn shares. n January 2012, ndia decided to
withdraw anti-dumping duties that were levied on Saudi Arabia-based
polypropylene manufacturers (including APPC) in November 2010. n
October 2011, APPC undertook maintenance work at its propylene plant for
10 days. As per the company, the shutdown had limited impact on 4Q11
earnings as APPC met customer orders using inventories.

Rabigh Refining and Petrochemical Co. (PetroRabigh),
established in Rabigh in 2005, is a joint venture between
Saudi Aramco and Japan's Sumitomo Chemical. The US$10bn
project can produce 130 mn barrels (bbl) of refined products
and 2.4mn mt of petrochemical products annually.
x Business brief
Aramco is expected to supply 400k barrels of crude oil, 95mn cubic feet (mcf)
of ethane and about 15k barrels of butane on a long-term and fixed-price
basis to PetroRabigh. Sumitomo provides the technological and marketing
expertise. The plant is equipped with a sophisticated High Olefins Fluid
Catalytic Cracker (HOFCC) and Ethane Cracker. Saudi Aramco is
responsible for marketing PetroRabigh's refining petroleum products, while
Sumitomo handles the marketing of the petrochemical products. PetroRabigh
is planning to commence work on its phase project, which would double its
capacity by 2015.
x Financials
During 2011, PetroRabigh's revenues grew 14.0% YoY to SR53.4bn, while
net income dropped 68.4% YoY to SR65.9mn. Net losses incurred during
2Q11 and 3Q11 due to the planned maintenance shutdown from 21 April
2011 to 30 June 2011 impacted the company's earnings for the year. A non-
operating, non-recurring income of SR310.8mn from derecognition of leased
assets and related lease obligations during 2010 further widened the YoY
drop in net income.
x Recent developments
On 31 December 2011, PetroRabigh announced the completion of the
lenders reliability test (LRT) at all its production units. The test (which entailed
running the petrochemical complex at an operating rate of 97% for 210 days)
validates its production stability and reliability. On 4 December 2011,
PetroRabigh announced the successful completion of the performance
guarantee test conducted at its High Olefins Fluidized Catalytic Cracking
(HOFCC) unit.

Established in 1992, Nama Chemicals Company (NAMA)
develops, owns and operates industrial projects within the
chemical and petrochemical sectors. NAMA functions through
its affiliates Arabian Alkali Company (55k mtpa capacity) and
Jubail Chemical Industries Company (60k mtpa capacity).
x Business brief
Arabian Alkali is one of the largest caustic soda producers in the Middle East.
Jubail Chemical ndustries (JANA) produces epoxy resins and markets them
under the brand names RAZEEN and ARALDTE. NAMA set up the Hassad
Petrochemical Company in 2005, which manufactures different types of
chemicals to supply feedstock to both of its subsidiaries.
x Financials
NAMA's revenues grew 15.8% YoY to SR728mn in 2011, but it posted a net
loss of SR247mn (net income of SR34.5mn in 2010) due to higher raw
material costs, reduced selling prices, higher financing and depreciation-
related cost as well as an additional expense of SR168mn in 2011. Weak
global demand for petrochemical products (mainly in Europe) impacted
selling prices and NAMA's operating rate in 4Q11.
x Recent developments
On 21 March 2012, NAMA's subsidiary JANA obtained SR209mn in debt
from the SDF to fund the hike in cost of its Hassad project. On 12 February
2012, JANA signed an agreement with the Royal Commission of Jubail &
Yanbu to use land for constructing a facility producing epoxy resins, caustic
soda and calcium chloride. On 30 January 2012, NAMA announced that it
would increase its epoxy resins capacity to 120k mtpa from the current 60k
mtpa by investing SR109mn. Trial runs are scheduled to start in 3Q12. On 30
January 2012, NAMA announced that it started trial runs at its chloride plant,
and the facility is expected to reach full capacity by 4Q12. On 1 January
2012, Mr. Fahed Rached Mohammad Al Otaibi replaced Mr. Abdulrahman
Abdullah Al Hammad as NAMA's CEO.

Alujain Corporation (Alujain), an industrial investment firm,
was established in 1991 and promoted by Xenel Industries
(one of the oldest conglomerates in the Kingdom). The
company's investments incIude a 57.4% stake in NationaI
Petrochemical Co. (NatPet) and a 100% stake in Arab
Pesticide Co. (MOBEED).
x Business brief
Alujain predominantly invests in the Saudi petrochemical, energy, mining and
metals sectors. The company transferred its Alfasel propylene production
facility to the Teldene polypropylene project, promoted by its associate
NatPet, in May 2006. NatPet owns a SR2.3bn propylene and polypropylene
plant, with a 400k mtpa capacity. The company signed a contract with Noble
Group for the offtake of its production.
x Financials
n 2011, Alujain reported revenues of SR1,472mn, indicating a YoY growth of
72.7%, driven by the full year contribution from its subsidiary (NatPet), which
started commercial operations on 6 August 2010. However, it reported net
loss of SR10mn in 2011 (net profit of SR42.2mn in 2010) due to lower
production volumes, higher feedstock cost, increased interest expense in
4Q11, and a SR5.1mn expense related to a write-off of a subsidiary's project
development cost in 4Q11. An unplanned shutdown of 23 days in 4Q11 and
planned turnaround work for 49 days in 2Q11 lowered volumes in 2011.
x Recent developments
On 19 October 2011, Alujain announced that its Natpet complex resumed
operations after an unplanned closure on 26 September 2011 caused by a
technical issue at the dehydrogenation unit. On 20 June 2011, Alujain
announced that the Natpet complex resumed operations at its plants after
conducting process and machinery enhancement work for a period of 49
days. Alujain finished the turnaround work 11 days before schedule.

Established in 1989, Methanol Chemicals Company
(Chemanol) is a manufacturer of methanol, formaldehyde and
its derivatives, including urea formaldehyde, acetaldehyde,
hexamine, resins and super plasticizers. The company
exports around 83% of products to more than 50 countries,
including the UK, France, Germany, South Africa, the US,
Canada, and Japan.
x Business brief
Chemanol produces and supplies methanol, formaldehyde and its derivatives
for use across industries such as agricultural, pharmaceutical, paper
manufacturing and construction. The company had its nitial Public Offering
(PO) on the Saudi Stock Exchange in August 2008 to finance an expansion
plan involving around SR2bn investment.
x Financials
Chemanol's revenues grew to SR830mn in 2011 (SR590mn in 2010), while
net income increased to SR70.2mn (from SR6mn). This was due to higher
selling prices and sales volumes along with improved operational efficiency.
Earnings for 2011 benefited from the full-year contribution made by the
dimethylformamide plant (started commercial operations on 28 June 2010).
x Recent developments
Chemanol conducted technical enhancement works at its methanol and
dimethylformamide plants during 1224 October 2011 to improve their
efficiency and productivity. On 5 June 2011, it secured a Murabaha
refinancing facility (in which SABB, Riyadh Bank and Samba participated) of
SR832mn to fund cost overruns and working capital needs. t would be
repaid in 14 semi-annual installments starting from 15 July 2011 to 15
December 2017. On 7 May 2011, Chemanol and Sahara signed a MoU to
build a 50k-mtpa neopentyl glycol plant, estimated to cost SR470mn.
Chemanol would hold 15% stake in it and provide formaldehyde (key
feedstock) to this facility. The project is scheduled to be completed by 2Q14.

KSA's cement sector expanded significantly in 2011 after three
years of negative and weak performance. We expect demand to
continue to be strong in 2012 driven by robust expenditure by the
government on infrastructure projects and housing. We estimate
demand for cement to grow 10.8% (to 52.2mn tons) in 2012 and
8% in 2013.
Cement sales are estimated to increase at a CAGR of 6.3% until 2016 driven
primarily by increased government spending on infrastructure and housing in the
medium term. As per our estimates, government spending in 2012 will be 13%
higher than budgeted at SR780bn in addition to the SR120bn allocated to build
500,000 housing units. Additionally, the value of construction contracts awarded
in Saudi Arabia rose 155% YoY to SR270bn in 2011, with nearly 69% awarded
during the second half of the year.
Another key trend in the sector is the shift in local demand from the central to the
western region due to the government's redevelopment projects. Furthermore,
the western region is now the center of mega project developments including the
Haramain Railway, Jeddah's new airport, major drainage and other
infrastructure works.
n 2011, the Saudi cement sector had a capacity of 51mn tons, while demand
totaled 47mn tons. Considering the expected growth in demand, the country is
likely to witness a demand-supply gap, especially in the western region.
However, on the back off the government's recent intervention to aid supply, we
believe prices are likely to stabilize in the near term (close to ceiling levels). n
the medium term, the healthy demand outlook should provide strong pricing
support. Moreover, in February 2012, the Saudi government imposed a ban on
the export of clinker and cement (exports constituted 4% of total cement sales in
2011).
Fuel Key catalyst in the near term
The recent fuel allocations are likely to temporarily benefit several companies,
including Yanbu Cement (3mn tons new line capacity) and Southern Cement
(1.5mn tons new line capacity), in the short term. However, uncertain fuel supply is
expected to be the main constraint on cement capacity addition over the long
term. The government set up a committee to analyze and forecast demand of
cement. The committee is required to report its suggestions within six months
when the current order approving fuel supply ends.

ntrinsic cost advantages compared to other GCC players
Saudi cement companies post impressive returns compared to their GCC peers
primarily due to significant cost advantages. Cement companies in KSA have
access to limestone quarries under licenses granted by the government.
Furthermore, in KSA, the cost of natural gas/oil, which is used as fuel by cement
plants and is a major component of a cement firm's overall expenses, is low.
Consequently, the cost of production for KSA-based companies is much lower than
that for other GCC and global players. Thus average gross margin for Saudi cement
companies was around 54% in 2011 relative to the GCC average of 37%.The
average cost of cement per ton increased marginally to SR112/ton in 2011.

Cement production in KSA grew 12.8% YoY to 48.4mt, whereas the total cement
and clinker sales volume increased 11% YoY to 49.3mt during 2011, driven by
increased construction activity. Southern Cement reported the strongest sales
volume growth up 25.3% and Eastern cement was weakest with volumes
declining by 8.3%YoY. The four unlisted private companies total sales volume
increased by 1.7% to 10.1mn tons in 2011.
The revenues of KSA's nine listed cement companies increased by 21% YoY in
2011 to SR9.6bn. Apart from Jouf cement which tripled the revenues as its
factory reached full production, Arabian Cement reported the strongest growth of
45% YoY with Eastern cement reporting the weakest with revenues declining by
1% YoY. The average Net income margin of the sector improved 230 bps to
44.5% in 2011.
Prices to remain near ceiling levels
Following its directive on fuel supply, in March 2012, the KSA government
reduced the price cap of cement from SR250/ton to SR240/ton. Prior to this,
cement prices in the western region were close to the then government-set
ceiling of SR250/ton, while those in the eastern region were marginally lower at
SR244/ton. However, amid increased monitoring by the government, all
companies started selling cement at SR240/ton since March 21, 2012.
The continued pricing pressure that we have seen in last few years has stalled.
The average price of cement per ton grew significantly, up 7.3% to SR245 in
2011 after falling to SR228 in 2010 from SR235 in 2009 and SR255 in 2008.
Due to this, the sector's adjusted net profit increased 24.6% to SR4.5bn in 2011.
Arabian Cement among the listed companies reported the highest average price
at SR284/ton in 2011.

NCBC Recommendations in the Sector
Although, the demand outlook for the sector remains bullish due to strong
government spending on infrastructure and housing, we remain Neutral for the
sector as a whole as we believe the positive outlook is currently priced in. n the
current environment, we believe companies with excess stock/capacity as well
as in close proximity to key demand points (gradually shifting to the western
region) stand to benefit the most. Currently, we have six stocks under our
coverage: Yamama Cement, Eastern Cement, Yanbu Cement, Saudi Cement,
Southern Cement and Qassim Cement.

Rating PT (SR) Comments
Yamamah Cement
(3020.SE)
Neutral 55.8 Strong demand in Riyadh and the ability to sell in different regions are the main
advantages. However, high utilization rate and declining stock level are the key
negatives.

Eastern Cement
(3080.SE)
Neutral 59.1 Shifting focus to domestic market due to export, but limitation on exports remains key
downside. Still focused on Eastern region for sales.

Yanbu Cement
(3060.SE)
Neutral 75.2 Demand shift from Central to the western region is key advantage. The company is
located close to the region's main projects. n addition, it has a new line of 3mn tons

Saudi Cement
(3030.SE)
Neutral 82.7 Based in the Eastern region, away from most of the key demand centers. However, ts
high stock level, excess capacity and re-operating its old lines are positives.

Southern Cement
(3050.SE)
Neutral 99.5 Well positioned for Jizan Economic City in the South. New facility near Makkah with
1.5mn tons should also help. High stock level and excess capacity supports the outlook.

Qassim Cement
(3040.SE)
Neutral 81.4 Lowest cost cement producer in the country with very low inventory levels. Lack of
capacity expansion plans could limit growth.

Saudi Cement Company (SCC) is one of the Iargest cement
companies in Saudi Arabia. A Iow cost base given its
reIativeIy new production Iines aIong with high stock IeveIs
are the company's key strengths. AdditionaIIy the resumption
of operations in its oId Iines and the seIIing of cIinker stocks
are key advantages in the near term.
x Business brief
SCC was established in 1955 and specializes in the production of ordinary
Portland cement, sulphate resistant cement, and oil well cement. SCC, which
has the largest production capacity (7.2mn tons of cement/year) in Saudi,
would further increase it by 24% (extra total production of 5,325 tons/day) on
reopening the old lines. SCC has been losing ground in the domestic market
in the past few years, mainly due to competition from new entrants. n 2011,
SCC had a market share of 14.7%, which has declined from 19% in 2006.
SCC has a 36% equity stake in United Cement Company (Bahrain) and
another 33.0% in Cement Product ndustry Co. Ltd.
x FinanciaIs
Revenues grew 12.4% YoY to SR1,716mn in 2011 attributed to growth in
sales volume in the backdrop of increased demand from the local market,
combined with YoY increase in prices. EBTDA increased 17.5% to
SR1,051mn due to lower costs as a result of efficiency gains from the new
production lines. Consequently, net profit of the year also rose 26.0% to
SR831mn.
x Recent deveIopments
On March 17, 2012, SCC approved the distribution of SR4.5 per share cash
dividend for the 2H11, changing the full year dividend to SR6.5 per share.

Yamama Cement Company (YSCC), which is located in Riyadh
is one of the oldest and largest cement companies in Saudi
Arabia. Its stock level is the key advantage while the limited
excess capacity and the shift in demand to the western region
are the main concerns.
x Business brief
YSCC was founded in 1961 and is one of the largest cement companies in
Saudi Arabia with annual cement and clinker production capacities of 6.3mn
tons and 6.0mn tons, respectively. Based in Riyadh, YSCC is strategically
located to take advantage of the increased momentum of the construction
sector in 2011, particularly in the Central region. Although it has declined,
from 2009, YSCC maintains one of the highest cement market shares in the
country (12.2% in 2011 and 13.5% in 2009).
x Financials
In 2011, YSCC's revenues were up 13.4% YoY to SR1,442mn driven by
increased sales volume combined with a YoY increase in cement prices.
EBITDA grew 10.4% YoY to SR946mn, with net income up 12.6% YoY to
SR740mn driven largely by the top-line growth. However, net margin fell
slightly by 36bps YoY to 51.3% in 2011 from 51.6% in 2010 due to higher
SG&A expenses during the year.
x Recent developments
On February 26, 2012, YSCC approved the distribution of SR2 per share
cash dividend for the six month period ending December 31, 2011.
Additionally, on October 2011, the company announced the liquidation of its
holding in Sudani Kuwaiti Holding Company, where the company's share of
liquidation amounted to SR13,975mn.

Qassim Cement Company (QCC) was founded in 1976 in
Buraydah, which is Iocated in the centraI region of KSA. As of
December 2010, QCC had a totaI production capacity of 4.1mn
tons of cement and 3.5mn tons of cIinker. QCC's high
dividend yieId remains a key strength of the company; high
utiIization rates and Iow inventory IeveIs remain key concerns.
x Business brief
QCC held a steady share of the KSA's cement market for many years;
however, this fell to 8.6% in 2011 from 11.1% in 2009, led by increased
competition from private players. Nevertheless, QCC is still one of the most
efficient companies in the domestic cement sector. n 2011, QCC produced
cement at SR101 per ton, compared to the industry average of SR112 per
ton. However, it is expected to increase to SR105 as a result of buying
clinker from Saudi Cement.
x FinanciaIs
Qassim's revenues grew 6.9% in 2011 compared to the 2.0% decline in 2010
attributable to higher sales volume and stable prices. Driven by this, EBTDA
grew by 7.5% YoY to SR663mn during the year. Net profit also increased by
10.5% YoY to SR553mn in 2011, led by improved operating performance of
its subsidiary companies.
x Recent deveIopments
On March 21, 2012, Qassim Cement Company approved the distribution of
SR3.5 per share cash dividend for the second half of 2011. Additionally,
according to the local press, QCC is investigating the possibility of opening a
new line of production. Finally, on January 09, 2011, the company
announced that they have successfully performed a proposal study with
respect to the new production line, but received a reply from Aramco that it
would not supply the fuel.

Eastern Cement Co. (EPCC) was estabIished in 1982 near
Dammam in the Eastern region of KSA. EPCC was a reguIar
exporter of cement to neighboring countries. Limited spare
capacity and Iow inventory wouId hinder the company's abiIity
to meet increasing demand.
x Business brief
EPCC's market share has been declining over the years; it fell to 6.9% in
2011 from 8.3% in 2010 and 2009, 9.5% in 2008 and 12.0% in 2007. The
company had a production capacity of 3.5mn tons of cement. EPCC holds a
30% stake in Arabian Yemeni Cement Company, 5.4% in ndustrialization
and Energy Services Company; and 1.2% in Saudi ndustrial nvestment
Group.
x FinanciaIs
EPCC's revenue declined 0.8% YoY to SR813mn in 2011 largely due to a
decline in sales volumes by 8%, however, partially offset by higher cement
prices during the year. Despite this, EBTDA grew 7.3% to SR478mn and net
income rose 6.1% to SR364mn mainly due to the YoY decline in the unit cost

KSA's retail sector is driven by increasing urbanization, rising
disposable incomes, growing brand awareness and greater access
to organized retail. Additionally, government initiatives such as
unemployment benefits, minimum wage rates and public sector
wage increases should support near-term retail spending. A
fragmented market provides opportunities for the market leaders to
take market share. Saudisation needs, entry of foreign firms and
supply-chain management are risks to the growth prospects of the
sector.
According to EU estimates, total retail sales in Saudi Arabia for 2011 came in at
an estimated US$98bn, up from US$87bn in 2010. Retail sales as a whole are
expected to grow by an estimated 10% in 2012 to US$108bn and increase to
US$138bn by 2015. From the retail total, approximately 49% of the sales value
in 2011 came from food sales (US$48.4bn). Through a combination of positive
macro factors (high oil price, large population which is young and growing,
increased move towards organised retailing etc), we believe this supports the
long term growth outlook of the sector.
Sustained YoY profitability growth in 2011
Of the nine companies in the sector, Jarir Marketing Co and Fawaz Abdulaziz
Al-Hokair Co are the largest, with a market capitalization of SR9.2bn and
SR5.3bn, respectively, as of 3 April 2012. The two companies' respective weight
in the TAS index was 1.4% and 0.4%, whereas the retail sector as a whole
accounted for 2.9%.
The combined revenue of the nine companies rose 25.6% YoY to SR17.2bn in
2011. The sector's net earnings grew 22% YoY to SR1.5bn during the same
period. Jarir Marketing reported a 28% YoY increase in net profit to SR513mn in
2011, while Al-Hokair's net profit grew 36.3% YoY to SR315mn in the same
year. Jarir Marketing and Al-Hokair posted net margins of 12.4% and 13.4%,
respectively, higher than the industry average of 7.4%.

Long-term drivers intact, unemployment benefits to support
growth in the near term
Looking ahead, KSA's retail sector is likely to be driven by population growth,
rising incomes, and the spread of organized retail. Additionally, the
unemployment benefit scheme introduced in late 2011 which pays unemployed
Saudi nationals SR2,000 a month could help accelerate spending in the cash-
based retail sector. Similarly, a 35%-100% increase in public sector wages could
drive revenue growth for major players, such as Jarir and AL-Hokair, in the
sector.
NCBC Recommendations for the Sector
n the long term, we are positive on Saudi Arabia's retail sector, considering the
strong fundamentals of the domestic market, as well as government stimulus
supporting consumer spending. We currently have three stocks in the sector
under our coverage: Jarir, Al-Hokair, and Al-Othaim.
Exhibit 67: Coverage stocks details
Stock Current Rating PT (SR) Comments
Jarir
(4190.SE)
Neutral 152.0 Plans to almost double number of stores, coupled with a 50% T market share,
provide strong platform for the stock. Low liquidity and declining price of laptops
a concern. Store openings the key catalyst for the stock. Valuation is somewhat
stretched at 14.2x 2012e P/E.

Al-Hokair
(4240.SE)
Neutral 68.0 Al Hokair is undergoing aggressive international expansion in former Soviet
Union countries such as Kazakhstan and Azerbaijan. We believe this comes
with increased risks vs. its Saudi business. We believe the valuation is not
attractive at 11.2x 2013e P/E.

Al-Othaim
(4001.SE)
Overweight 115.0 Al Othaim is the number two food retailer in the KSA. t is well positioned to
increase share as market shifts to organized retailing. Entrance of foreign
players and rising COGS are key risks. Store expansion is key catalyst for the
stock. Ongoing RE acquisition is holding back the stock.

With operations commencing in 1956, Abdullah Al Othaim
Markets Company (Al Othaim) is the second-largest food
retailer in Saudi Arabia. It is well positioned to take advantage
of the growth prospects of organised food retail in Saudi
Arabia. However, high food prices and the company's limited
ability to pass on cost inflation amid rising competition are
the key risks for the stock.
x Business brief
Al Othaim operates four store formats: hypermarkets, supermarkets, corner
stores and wholesale stores. The company runs a chain of over 108 stores,
primarily in central Saudi Arabia, and is looking to open 12 new stores in
2012. Al Othaim has signed an agreement to buy the remaining stake in its
real estate arm in, although the deal is yet to complete.
x Financials
Al Othaim's revenues grew 16.3% YoY to SR4,091mn in 2011, largely driven
by an increase in the store count (108 at the end of 2011 and 96 at the end of
2010) as well as organic growth. EBTDA rose 19.6% YoY to SR232mn
during the year. Net profit decreased 7.3% YoY to SR150mn in 2011 due to
the absence of one-off income (SR6.5mn in 2010), as well as lower rebates
from suppliers. Adjusting for Other income, net income for the year fell 3.4%
mainly due to higher depreciation charges as well as discontinuation of the
capitalization of financial charges in 2011. Continued store expansion and
the associated increase in volumes sold are expected to drive growth in
revenues in the coming years. However, we believe organic growth would
remain subdued amid increasing competition.
x Recent developments
To build warehouses and residences for its employees, Al Othaim acquired
433,345 square meters of land worth SR102mn in the industrial zone of
Riyadh in August 2011.

Jarir Marketing Company (Jarir) was established in Riyadh in
1979. Historically, the company was focused on the sale of
books, school items and office supplies. In the past five years,
Jarir has increasingly focused on the sale of electronics such
as laptops, gaming devices and smartphones. The company's
position as one of the leading electronics retailer in the region
is a key positive; pressure on margins from competition is a
key risk.
x Business brief
Jarir's business activities are divided into four broad segments: School
Supplies, Office Supplies, Consumer Electronics and Books. The company
had 30 stores across the GCC as of 2011, up from 23 in 2008. Jarir has
benefited from the young demographics of the region to become one of the
leading consumer electronics retailers in the GCC.
x Financials
Jarir's revenues grew 37.6% YoY to SR4,147mn in 2011 due to strong sales
in electronic items, particularly tablets and smartphones; the company
increased its store count to 30 from 28 a year ago. Although margins
declined due to Jarir's aggressive pricing and the ongoing shift in the sales
mix towards lower margin electronic items, EBDTA increased 27% YoY to
SR528mn in 2011. Net income grew 28% YoY to SR513mn in 2011, while
net margin declined to 12.4% in 2011 from 13.3% in 2010.
x Recent developments
On April 3, 2012, Jarir announced the opening of its 27
th
store in Saudi (31
st

store in the GCC) with a total floor space of 3,760 sq. mtrs for a total of
SR15mn. The company also mentioned that it plans to open one more store
in Riyadh; this would take its total store count to 32 at the end of 2012. n
December 2011, Jarir announced that its EGM had approved the 50% rise in
capital, which would increase its number of outstanding shares from 40mn to
60mn. On August 23, 2011, Jarir announced the opening of a new 3,700 sq.
mtr store in Al Refaai Group Center in Mekkah.

Fawaz Abdulaziz AlHokair Company (AlHokair), established in
1990, is the largest fashion retail franchise player in Saudi
Arabia, accounting for roughly half of the mid-market fashion
retail business in the KSA through its 70 plus brands. The
firm's position as a leading player in the growing market is a
key positive, while increased risk from overseas expansion
and potential margin pressure are the concerns for the stock.
x Business brief
AlHokair operates around 1300 fashion stores and is the retail franchise
partner for over 70 global brands. Brands under its control include Zara,
Banana Republic, GAP, Monsoon and Marks & Spencers. AlHokair owns a
majority stake in Retail Group Egypt and Retail Group Jordan (both acquired
from its parent in June 2010). After initial expansion in Jordan, Egypt and
Kazakhstan, Al-Hokair is now targeting other ex-CS countries such as
Azerbaijan, Georgia and Armenia.
x Financials
AlHokair's revenues rose 24.4% YoY to SR3,203mn for the year ended
March 2012 (FY12), mainly due to the growth in same store sales and
opening of 255 new stores during the year. EBDTA grew 48% YoY to
SR539mn in FY12 as EBTDA margin expanded to 16.8% from 14.1% last
year due to lower operating expenses as a percentage of sales. This and a
YoY jump in other income led to net income growing by 42% to SR447mn in
FY12. We expect sustained expansion in revenues in the coming years,
driven by the continued store expansion plan with a primary focus on
international markets. The recent commencement of payment to unemployed
locals by the Saudi government should boost spending on discretionary
items, thereby benefitting companies such as Al Hokair.
x Recent developments
On October 31, 2011, the company approved the SR187.5mn financing
agreement with the nternational Finance Corporation (FC), one of the
institutions of the World Bank.

Saudi Arabia's power sector is being mainly driven by sustained
expansionary policies, rising infrastructure investment and
population growth. According to the Ministry of Water and
Electricity, the demand for power in the Kingdom is likely to grow at
an annual rate of 4.5% until 2023, thereby increasing the demand
to an estimated 75,000MW. n order to cater to this strong demand,
the government is investing heavily in the power sector, and plans
to add a production capacity of 3,0004,000MW each year.
The Saudi Arabian government is encouraging more private sector participation
in the power and desalination sectors. The initial series of the three ndependent
Power Projects (PPs) awarded by Saudi Electricity Company (SECO) is
scheduled for completion by 2014. These projects (combined capacity of
5,200MW) were announced in 2007, and would be built in Rabigh, Riyadh and
Qurayyah. Two additional PPs at Qurayyah and Dheba are scheduled to come
online by 2017. Several ndependent Water and Power Projects (WPPs) have
also been commissioned, with the most prominent one being developed by
Marafiq. The government is supporting this massive expansion by increasing
allocation to the water and infrastructure sectors by about 13% to SR57.5bn.

The Saudi Stock Exchange (Tadawul) currently has two companies trading
under the Energy & Utilities sector; Saudi Electricity Company (SECO), and
National Gas and ndustrialization Co. (NGC). SECO is one of the heavyweights
in the market, accounting for about 1.82% of the TAS's free float.
SECO has a near monopoly in Saudi Arabia's electricity sector. After the delay
in 2011, implementation of SECO's restructuring and privatization plan is
expected to go ahead in 2012. As part of the restructuring plan, the company
would be split into four power generation units, one distribution firm and one
transmission firm, while SECO would operate as a holding company. n 2011,
the company's revenue grew 9.7% YoY to SR30.6bn, while net profit fell 2.9%
YoY to SR2.2bn. NGC's revenues rose 5.7% YoY to SR1.7bn during the year,
while net profit increased 17.9% to SR106.4mn from SR90.2mn in 2010.

Saudi Electricity Company (SEC) is the largest power
generator in Saudi Arabia. Established in 2000, the company
is engaged in the generation, transmission and distribution of
electric power across the Kingdom. SEC was formed through
the consolidation of 10 regional electricity companies.
x Business brief
SEC has a monopoly in the transmission and distribution of electricity in
Saudi Arabia and a near-monopoly in generation. The company also exports
and imports energy, and invests in various power projects in the Kingdom.
SEC had a total available capacity of 51,743 megawatts (MW) at the end of
2011.
x Financials
Revenues grew 9.7% YoY to SR30,570mn in 2011, mainly driven by the
increase in consumption due to rising demand for electricity and expansion of
capacity across the Kingdom. Net profit came in at SR2,213mn, down 3%.
This was mainly due to the rise in the cost of purchased energy and higher-
than-expected depreciation.
x Recent developments
On March 31, 2012, SEC announced that it had been granted a loan of
USD1.4bn to finance the construction of its sixth power plant in Rabigh. The
loan would be repaid in semi-annual installments over a period of 15 years.
SEC plans to build a 2,400 MW, heavy fuel oil burning plant, to be called
Jeddah South. The oil-fired power plant is expected to be completed by
2016.
To meet the growing demand, SEC plans to set up power transport lines,
gas-powered generating units and transformers in different parts of the
Kingdom. n line with this, the company signed 11 contracts worth SR2bn in
December 2011.

Saudi Arabia is the largest food market in the GCC, accounting for
65% of total food consumption in 2011. The Kingdom's food
market is estimated to be worth SR115bn in 2011, increasing to
SR140bn in 2015 according to EU estimates. Factors such as
Saudi Arabia's relatively large and young demographics (70% of
the population is under 30 years of age) and rising per capita
income are the key long-term demand drivers. However, the
country's reliance on imported food and its inability to pass on the
increased cost to consumers remain the main concerns.
Saudi Food market the largest in the GCC
By far the Saudi Food and Agriculture sector is the largest in the GCC, largely
off the back of around 70% of the population of the GCC being based in Saudi
Arabia. n terms of listed companies, again, the revenues generated by Saudi
companies exceeded USD10bn in 2011, compared to less than USD400mn in
other major GCC countries.

High dependence on food imports
According to the Saudi Ports Authority, Saudi Arabia imported 20mn tons of food
items in 2010 (equivalent to 80% of the total volume consumed in Saudi Arabia)
and up from 15mn tons in 2006. The reliance on imports is due to the scarcity of
water and adverse weather conditions which make domestic agricultural
production difficult. At SR63bn in 2010, food and agricultural imports accounted
for 15.8% of overall imports in to KSA and grew by 19% YoY. According to the
Economist ntelligence Unit (EU), food imports are set to more than double to
SR132bn in 2020. Given its reliance on imports, the Kingdom remains
vulnerable to a rise in global food prices
Almarai and Savola, key stocks in the food sector
Of the 14 companies in the sector, Almarai and Savola are by far the largest,
with a market capitalization of SR26.2bn and SR18.1bn, respectively (75% of
the total sector market capitalization). These accounted for 1.9% and 1.7%,
respectively, of the Tadawul as of 1 April 2012.
Revenue for the sector increased 17.6% YoY to SR38.4bn in 2011, while the
industry's net earnings rose 6.8% YoY to SR2.8bn. Savola recorded 19.8% YoY

was mainly based on increased market share and increased margins at its food
retail business. Almarai's revenues increased 14.7% during the year although
reported net income decline by 11.4% due mainly to a provision on its Zain KSA

Long-term growth drivers intact; stable food prices key to
profitability in near to medium term
We expect Saudi Arabia's favorable demographics to continue driving the
sector's growth. The Kingdom's relatively large population, low per capita food
consumption, rising income levels and increased religious pilgrims will continue
driving growth in the sector. However, KSA's ongoing dependence on imported
food and the phasing out of subsidies by the government are risks for the sector.
Both listed and private companies in the sector are attempting to mitigate these
risks by expanding geographically, as well as investing in agricultural projects in
less developing countries.
NCBC recommendation
We are cautiously optimistic about the sector's performance in the long term. We
believe most of the demand for the sector is locally driven and therefore likely to
remain strong despite ongoing global challenges. However, the Kingdom's
dependence on imported food is a key weakness. Nevertheless, in the short-run,
the moderate global outlook for 2012-2013 will likely ensure that commodity
prices will be under pressure, allowing margin expansion. We currently rate
Savola as overweight as we believe the margin expansion potential at the retail
business is significant, with the food business continuing to grow its volumes.
We are currently neutral on Almarai given our concerns on the return on
investment from the poultry business, alongside the time it will take for the new
businesses to become profitable.

SavoIa is one of the Ieading food companies in the MENA
region with operations stretching from Morocco to
Kazakhstan. The company is weII positioned to benefit from
the growth in mass grocery retaiI in the region as weII as
increased spending on food. SavoIa's move towards a
'FinanciaI HoIding Company' structure may unIock some of
the congIomerate discount currentIy present in the stock.
Limited abiIity to pass on the rise in raw materiaI prices to
consumers is a key risk.
x Business brief
Savola's business interests are divided into three segments: Savola Foods
(edible oils, sugar and pasta), Savola Retail (Panda and Hyper Panda) and
Savola Plastic. With more than 131 outlets across the KSA, Savola enjoys a
leading position in retailing. Savola has major investments in Almarai Dairy
Co. (30%), Herfy Foods Co. (47.6%), Kinan (30%), and Alexandria Sugar
(45.5%), among others. The company is also one of the founding
shareholders of KEC in Madinah and KAEC in Rabigh, KSA.
x FinanciaIs
Savola's revenues grew 19.8% to SR25.2bn in 2011 from SR21bn the
previous year, driven by market share gains in the food and retail division as
well as continued geographic expansions. Net income rose 35.6% YoY to
SR1.2bn during the year due to one-off gains from the sale of land during
4Q11 as opposed to one-off losses in the form of impairment during the last
quarter of 2010. Adjusting for these, net income increased at a slower pace
of 11% YoY to SR1,085mn as net margin declined from 4.6% in 2010 to
4.3% in 2011 due to higher financial charges.
x Recent deveIopments
n April 2012, Savola acquired 9.7% and 3.6% stakes in its subsidiaries USC
(KSA) and USCE (Egypt), respectively, from UK-based Tate & Lyle. n
December 2011, it announced the sale of its stakes in various lands and

RecentIy, AImarai expanded into fruit juice, bakery, pouItry
and infant miIk as it seeks to become the Ieading food
company in the region. Key cataIysts for the coming year
incIude the pace of progress in its new pouItry business, as
weII as expansion of juice and bakery into the rest of the GCC.

Riyadh-based Food Products Company was estabIished in
1989 to provide food products in Saudi Arabia. The company
focuses on processing, marketing, distributing and exporting
vaIue-added food items. Its target markets incIude Asia and
the MiddIe East.
x Business brief
Food Products Company operates under the brand name 'WAFRA' and has
a 11.1% stake in Jannat Agricultural nvestment Co. The company classifies
its operations under four business segments: Meat Factory (offers beef and
chicken burgers, kebabs, frankfurters); Vegetable Factory (offers frozen
French fries, potato wedges and a variety of peanuts); Pasta Factory
(produces a wide range of pastas under various brands); and Breakfast
Cereals (supplies corn flakes, frosted flakes and rice crispies).
x FinanciaIs
The company's revenues grew 11.4% YoY to SR82mn in 2011. However,
higher cost of sales (as a percentage of total revenues) due to rising raw
material prices lowered the EBTDA 2.2% YoY to SR16mn during the year.
The company's net income declined 43.8% YoY to SR10mn in 2011 due to
higher general and administrative expenses and lower rent income (as it
conceded the right of rent after it sold one of its building premises for
SR9.7mn).
x Recent deveIopments
On April 11, 2012, the company announced it had signed a contract with
Tabuk Agricultural Development Company for SR20.07mn to buy processed
potatoes. The company also announced signing a SR9.75mn contract with
an talian company to supply a new line of pastas and noodles, which would
be reflected in its financial statements for 2Q12. On December 4, 2011, the
company declared it had signed a memorandum of understanding with East
Asia Company to contribute SR5mn to the initial capital of Agricultural
Development and nvestment Company, which is currently in the process of
being established.

The liberalization of the telecom sector in Saudi Arabia since 2006
has led to significant growth in the sector. The sector's subscriber
base has grown from 19.7mn in 2006 to 53.7mn in 2011. The
introduction of mid- and low-end smart phones, improved technical
capability coupled with the young population of Saudi Arabia has
led to an increase in the mobile broadband penetration rate to
39.6% at the end of 2011 from 0.1% in 2006. We believe
broadband potential remains significant; pressure on pricing and
margins are concerns.
Saudi Arabia remains the largest market for mobile services in the GCC, with the
mobile penetration rate having reached 188% at the end of 2011. With
penetration reaching this level, we believe the focus of operators is moving away
from acquiring new incremental subscribers to deriving more value from existing
subscribers. Therefore, we expect the penetration rate to grow at a slower pace
of 5% YoY in 2012. nternet penetration reached 47.6% in 2011 with 13.6mn
subscribers from 41% penetration rate and 11.4mn subscribers in 2010, while
broadband subscribers are likely to increase to 19mn by 2015 from 11.3mn at
the end of 2011. At 39.6% in 2011, broadband penetration in KSA was still
below that in Bahrain, Qatar and the UAE (more than 50% in all three countries).
KSA's fixed-line penetration increased almost 10% to 4.63mn subscriptions at
the end of 2011 from 4.13m at the end of 2010. Growth in the segment remained
subdued during 20082010 with a higher number of people preferring mobiles
and the corporate segment remaining restrained amid the global economic
downturn. Nevertheless, subscriptions grew significantly during 2011, largely
due to the buoyant construction activities in the country as well as the entry of
new player 'Atheeb' that resulted in competition-led growth. Over the longer
term, factors such as reducing household size, growing population and
increased demand from corporates are expected to drive fixed-line growth.
Margin stability key to outlook
n 2011, the telecom sector in Saudi Arabia faced margin pressure (mainly the
international voice segment). Access charges were the main cost items dragging
the bottom line, while other gross and operating costs were relatively well
managed across the sector. Decline in ARPU as a result of the aggressive
pricing policy pursued by Zain KSA exerted further pressure on margins.
However, going forward, we believe companies would continue to focus on the
data segment (primarily mobile broadband) and subscriber conversions from
prepaid to postpaid. This, in turn, will stabilize ARPU and offset some of the
margin pressure. According to CTC data, 300k net additions were made to the
post-paid subscriber base in 2011 compared to just 200k in 2010.

The Saudi Arabian telecommunication sector is witnessing strong price based
competition with the focus shifting from voice to data. The drive to capture the
evolving data segment, which is largely underpenetrated now, is leading to
significant pricing pressure. Nevertheless, we believe the long-term growth
drivers for the sector remain intact due to the increased adoption of value-added
services amid lower tariff & handset prices and the evolution of smart phones
(sales of smart handheld devices increased 154% in 2010, according to CTC).
A relatively young population and their willingness to adopt new technologies as
well as the rising disposable income in KSA should support the demand for
these services. We believe the existing pressure on margins is likely to
rationalize after CTC's comment of avoiding price wars given it is adverse to
long term investment in the sector.
NCBC Recommendations in the Sector
We have a cautiously optimistic view on the Saudi Arabian telecom sector as a
whole. Concerns exist over declining ARPUs, limited room for operating
efficiencies, high mobile penetration levels and a saturating voice market.
However, increasing focus on the largely underpenetrated data sub-segment
(primarily value added services and broadband access), increasing equipment
demand, potential international exposure and strong underlying macroeconomic
factors are likely to supplement the sector's growth in the near term. We are
currently covering three stocks in the sector: Saudi Telecom Co, Mobily and Zain
KSA.

Etihad Etisalat Company (Mobily) is the second largest mobile
operator in Saudi Arabia. As of December 2011, the company
had a market share of around 40%. Stable ARPU, increased
equipment sales, gains in data, and a potential upside in the
size and frequency of dividends are key positives. The
possibility of continued price-led competition, particularly in
the international call segment, is a key threat.
x Business brief
Mobily was established in 2004 with UAE-based Emirates
Telecommunications Corporation (Etisalat) as the majority owner. Mobily
commenced operations in 2005 by providing wireless telecommunication
services. The company offers mobile telephony services in the Kingdom
using GSM, 3/3.5G and Wimax technologies. Mobily's broadband subscribers
totaled 8.7mn in 2011.
x Financials
Mobily's revenues grew 25.2% YoY to SR20,052mn in FY11 attributable
largely to increased % of revenue from data (22% against 18% in 2010) as
broadband subscribers grew from 2.3mn in 2010 to 8.7mn in 2011. ncrease
in postpaid subscribers and expansion of business sector revenue by 50%
and 85%, respectively, also supported the revenue growth. EBTDA surged
20.9% YoY to SR7,454mn in FY11 as margins declined due to increased
competition in the international call and data business, as well as higher
contribution of low-margin smart phones and tablet PCs' during the year. Due
to this, net income came in at SR5,083mn, up 20.7% YoY. Net margin
declined by 95bps YoY to 25.4% in 2011 as compared to 26.3% in 2010.
x Recent Developments
n February 2012, Mobily signed a refinancing agreement worth SR10bn with
seven local banks to refinance three of its existing short, medium and long
term loans. n March, 2012, the company announced collaboration with
Etihad Atheeb Telecom (GO) to provide fixed voice services.

Despite liberalization of the sector, STC remains the leading
telecom company in Saudi Arabia by revenues and market
share. Bottom line progress in its international operations and
continued growth in the Saudi market are STC's key positives;
price-led competition and FX exposure are key areas of
concern.
x Business brief
Saudi Telecom (STC) was established in 1998 as Saudi Arabia's first telecom
operator. STC classifies its operating segments in terms of service offerings:
GSM, PSTN, and DATA. The GSM segment includes mobile, 3G, prepaid
cards, international roaming and messaging services; PSTN comprises fixed-
line, card telephones, interconnect and international call services. DATA
services consist of leased data transmissions, DSL and nternet services.
More than 30% of 2011 revenues came from abroad, including Turkey,
Malaysia and ndia.
x Financials
Despite increased domestic competition, the group's revenues grew 7.5% in
2011 due to improved contribution from international business and a 131%
YoY increase in broadband revenues. EBTDA grew 8.9% YoY due to a 7.0%
decline in SG&A expenses in 2011 compared to an 18% rise in 2010.
EBTDA margin is expected to remain close to 35% in 2012, since the
adverse impact of lower margin handset sales has mostly been felt in 2011.
However, a 20% YoY increase in financial charges led to an 18.1% decline in
net income in FY11. The company is expected to continue to invest in
upgrading networks and increasing its international presence, which might
increase its debt levels.
x Recent developments
n December 2011, STC entered into an agreement with Saudi Research and
Marketing Group to purchase SRMG's 20% share in ntigral. STC abandoned
a plan to bid for raq's fourth mobile phone license after delays in awarding
the contract.

Mobile Telecommunications Company Saudi Arabia (Zain
KSA)-a member of Mobile Telecommunications Group (Zain),
Kuwait-was established in 2007 in Saudi Arabia to provide
wireless telecommunications services. Good progress in
growing its subscriber base is a key positive of Zain;
continued management change and further delay in balance
sheet restructuring are key risks.
x Business brief
Zain KSA is the third mobile operator in the Kingdom, which offers both voice
and data services. The company launched commercial services in August
2008 and is said to have 10mn subscribers as of December 2011. Zain KSA
became EBTDA positive in 2010. However, the company's ability to
generate net profits is hampered by a high debt burden and continuous
management change, as the company announced its new CEO on 3 March,
2012 (third CEO in six months).
x Financials
Due to its increased subscriber base and broadband customers, Zain KSA
recorded a 13% YoY revenue growth in 2011. COGS declined 19.0% in
FY11 compared to 37% in FY10, leading to a positive EBTDA of SR899mn
compared to SR331mn in 2010. The 7.0% fall in financial charges in FY11
vis-a-vis 47.0% in FY10 limited net losses to SR1, 925mn YoY.
x Recent developments
On March 3, 2012, the Board appointed Mr. Fraser Curley as the new CEO of
the company. On 26 January, 2012, the company received investor approval
for a SAR 9.75bn syndicated Murabaha financing to extend the murabaha's
maturity till 27 July, 2012.

Saudi Arabia is one of the largest insurance markets in the GCC.
However, insurance penetration in the Kingdom is among the
lowest in the region. n KSA, non-life policies generate most of the
premium income (93%) compared to life policies (7%). According
to the Economist ntelligence Unit (EU), health insurance is the
biggest line of business (53% of the insurance market in 2010),
followed by general insurance (41%), which includes property and
automobile insurance. Favorable demographic profile, regulatory
support and wider acceptance for Takaful insurance are likely to
drive growth in the industry.
The insurance sector in Saudi Arabia continued to expand in 2011sector
revenue rose 23.9% YoY to USD3.7bn from USD3.0bn in 2010. The sector
continues to offer significant growth opportunities, given that insurance
penetration in the Kingdom is low with the ratio of total estimated premiums to
GDP pegged at 1.1% in 2010 (according to Swiss Re). High population growth
with rising proportion of young people and supportive government regulations
(mandatory health insurance for expats and most nationals) reinforce the outlook
for growth in the industry. However, with around 50 insurance players in the
Kingdom, the industry faces intense competition.
Listed insurance companies in KSA are trading at a higher P/B multiple of 5.9x
compared to the GCC average of 2.0x. However, the average ROE for players in
the Kingdom is as low as -4.0% compared to the GCC average of 3.8%. This is
because majority of the companies continue to make losses (39% of the total
listed companies in the sector incurred losses in 2011), which indicates that the
sector is still in the nascent stage of development.

MaIath Cooperative Insurance and Reinsurance Company
(MaIath) was estabIished in 2007. Headquartered in Riyadh,
MaIath, was the second insurance company (after Tawuniya)
to be Iisted on the Saudi Stock Exchange. In addition to
generaI insurance, the company aIso provides facuItative
reinsurance products.
x Business brief
Malath's Corporate Products segment offers health, group life, motor,
property, engineering, marine, aviation and energy insurance. Under the
Retail division, the company provides health, medical malpractice, travel and
motor insurance. Malath derives premium income mainly from motor,
medical, property, aviation, marine cargo & hull, energy, and engineering
insurance.
x FinanciaIs
Malath's total revenue increased 15.7% YoY to SR444mn in 2011. The
growth can be mainly attributed to a rise in net insurance premium earned,
which grew 22.5% YoY to SR398mn from SR325mn in 2010. However, the
company's net income declined 22% YoY to SR14mn in 2011 compared to
SR18mn in 2010. The fall was mainly due to credit sales and a change in the
bad debt provision calculation method based on Saudi Arabian Monetary
Agency's requirements, which increased bad debt provision by SR12mn in
2011. Motor claims provision also rose as a result of the new royal decree on
blood money.
x Recent deveIopments
n November 2011, Malath entered into a one-year agreement with Aviva
British Co. to provide health insurance services to students on UK
scholarship. This contract is worth more than 10% of the company's annual
sales in 2010. n May 2011, Standards & Poor's revised the company's
outlook to positive from stable and affirmed its credit rating at 'BBB'.

Amana Cooperative Insurance Company (Amana), Iisted on 13
June 2010 on the TASI, provides various insurance products
to companies and individuaIs. Headquartered in Riyadh, the
company has branches in Jeddah and Khobar.
x Business brief
Amana was established by three companies: El Seif Co., FAL Holding, and
Libano-Suisse Group; these firms together own 60% of its shares. The
company provides insurance services through two broad segments:
individual and corporate. Under the individual products segment, Amana
offers medical, accident (personal accident, motor, travel and others), fire,

loss of SR48mn. The company's net insurance premium grew tremendously
from just SR4mn in 2010 to SR127.9mn in 2011. However, higher operating
expenses (due to early start-up stage of business) resulted in net loss for
2011. Nonetheless, Amana was able to reduce its combined ratio to 110.5%
in 2011 from 479.6% in 2010.
x Recent DeveIopments
n January 2012, Amana received approval from Saudi Arabian Monetary
Agency (SAMA) to offer travel insurance products for a period of six months.

the insurance business in Saudi Arabia. The company was
estabIished in Jeddah in 2007 as a separate entity from UCA
Insurance Co. of Bahrain. UCA was Iisted on TadawuI in June
2008.
x Business brief
UCA offers insurance products such as engineering (contractor's risks,
machinery, and plant & equipment used for construction), medical, personal
accident and protection, motor insurance, and marine cargo. The company's
220 employees serve clients through offices in three major cities of the
Kingdom (Jeddah, Riyadh, and Khobar).

UCA's net insurance premium and total revenue grew 14.9% and 12.2%
YoY, respectively, in 2011. However, net income declined 10.6% YoY to
SR51mn. The fall in net income can be mainly ascribed to higher general and
administrative expenses and technical reserves due to an increase in gross
written premiums. A decline in investment income from policyholders'
portfolio also contributed toward lower net income.
x Recent deveIopments
n March 2012, UCA announced the approval of distribution of 10% cash
dividends (SR1 per share) for the year 2011. n November 2011, the
company received approval from the Saudi Arabian Monetary Agency to
renew insurance and reinsurance license to proceed with its General
nsurance and Medical nsurance activities for a three-year term. UCA's
qualification was renewed by The Council of Cooperative Health nsurance in
July 2012. This would enable the company to issue health insurance policies
in accordance with cooperative health insurance policy standards.

Established in 1997, Saudi Arabian Mining Company
(Ma'aden) expIores and produces metals and non-metal ores.
The company owns five operating precious metal extraction
mines and several new projects. In July 2008, Ma'aden went
public and raised SR9.2bn, reducing the government's
holding to 55% from 100%.
x Business brief
Ma'aden currently has two business lines: gold mining and Maaden
Phosphate Company (MPC), which is a SR17bn project to set up a
diammonium phosphate (DAP) production facility. MPC is a 70:30 joint
venture between Ma'aden and SABC. Ma'aden has a total annual production
capacity of 440,000 tons of ammonia, 200,000 tons of phosphoric acid,
39,000 tons of caustic calcined magnesia, and 14.2 tons of gold and silver.
x Financials
Ma'aden's sales for 2011 grew 114.3% YoY to SR1514mn. This is mainly
ascribed to the commencement of commercial production of ammonia in
October 2011, an increase in the average price of ammonia, and higher sales
volume and average realized price per ounce of gold. The company reported
a net profit of SR413mn in 2011 compared to a loss of SR9mn in 2010,
primarily led by improved margins and lower Zakat provisions.
x Recent developments
n March 2012, Maaden and Alcoa announced that work to add a new
production line to the joint venture aluminum complex at Ras Al-Khair in
Saudi Arabia has commenced. With a annual capacity of 100,000 metric
tons, the complex would produce sheets for use in the automotive and
construction industries; production is expected to commence in 2014.

machines.
x Financials
SCC's sales grew 10.7% YoY to SR1,868mn in 2011. EBTDA fell 3.8% to

competition in the explosives sector. Net income further decreased 11.8%
YoY to SR267mn due to an increase in provisions.
x Recent developments
On October 9, 2011, the company signed a SR6.3mn contract with Austin
Powder Company of Czech Republic to increase the production capacity of
non-electric detonators by 50% in the western region factory. The expansion
is expected to complete by 2Q12.

Saudi Paper Manufacturing Company (SPMC) is among the
few integrated paper companies in the MENA region. SPMC
produces tissue paper, tissue rolls and other paper products,
and also owns recycling operations.
x Business brief
SPMC has three paper processing plants with a capacity of 125,000 tons of
tissue paper, 50,000 tons of converted paper, and 65,000 tons of de-inked
paper per year, respectively. The company's wholly owned subsidiary
Saudi Paper Converting Co (SPCC) converts tissue rolls into branded
consumables, which are distributed through the wholesale and retail
channels. Saudi Recycling Co (SRC) collects waste paper that serves as
feed for SPMC's downstream de-inking plants. Al-Madar Trading Co was set
up in the UAE to collect waste paper from international sources.
x Financials
SPMC's revenue grew 4% YoY to SR836mn in 2011. EBTDA margin

production cost during the year. This was due to long halts in production and
trial production runs on the fourth line of production of paper that required
some technical enhancements. Net income fell 18.1% YoY to SR100mn due
to increase in provisions for obsolete inventory.
x Recent developments
On December 17, 2011, SPMC cancelled its deal with CDG Maroc due to the
prevailing uncertainty in the cellulose industry.
SPMC appointed Mr. James David Pheebs to the Board of Directors; he

Saudi Arabia is the biggest construction market in the MENA
region. The Kingdom's construction sector recovered significantly
after a slowdown in 2010. This was primarily due to the
expansionary government policies, a growing population, and a
resilient economy. Despite many challenges such as increased
competition and price wars, we believe construction companies
performed well in 2011.
The residential construction market in Saudi Arabia strengthened in 2011 as the
focus shifted to affordable housing. Several new affordable housing projects,
including the government's aim to build 500,000 housing units,have been
initiated to address the strong supply gap in low-income housing units.
Meanwhile, the commercial construction segment has recovered due to low
interest rates, high liquidity and a growing economy. The Saudi Arabian
government continued to invest heavily on infrastructure to promote employment
and diversify the economy. Currently, four new economic cities are being
developed in Saudi Arabia which, we believe, would benefit construction related
companies.
The Tadawul-listed companies under the building & construction sector recorded
a strong performance in 2011, with revenues increasing significantly compared
to 2010. However, the sector's ROE stood at 3.0% in 2011, which we believe is
regarded low when compared to the GCC peer average of 12.2%.

We believe the outlook for the KSA's building & construction market is positive.
The total value of contracts awarded is expected to increase at a CAGR of 20%
to USD43.8bn by 2013 from USD36.5bn in 2011. The introduction of the new
mortgage law (currently under the King's consideration) is expected to drive the
demand for housing facilities. n 2010, the Kingdom committed to spend about
USD400bn on large infrastructure projects over the next five years. Additionally,
the USD82bn homebuilding fund by the government is expected to provide an
opportunity for the building & construction companies.
NCBC Recommendations in the Sector
We are covering Saudi Steel Pipes (SSP) in the buildings & construction sector.
We are currently neutral on the stock.
Exhibit 117: Coverage stocks details
Stock Current Rating PT (SR) Comments
Saudi Steel Pipes
(1320.SE)
Neutral 30.1 ncreasing demand for construction projects and higher sales volume from the
small diameter segment (that yield higher margins) would drive revenues.
However, limited demand for medium diameter segment and pressure on its
margins remain a key concern. We believe that positive factors have already
been priced in the current valuation, leaving limited upside potential from
current levels.

Saudi SteeI Pipe Company (SSP), estabIished in 1980,
manufactures weIded steeI pipes, gaIvanized and non-
gaIvanized pipes, carbon steeI tubes and anguIar tubes. The
company seIIs products in the domestic market and exports
to nearIy 20 countries.
x Business brief
SSP manufactures black and galvanized pipes in small and medium diameter
sizes, and caters to the construction, real estate, and oil & gas markets. The
small diameter production capacity is 80,000 tons per year, while that of
medium diameter is 160,000 tons per year. The company is also expanding
in the large diameter pipes market through a 35% stake in an under-
construction plant in Jubail. The plant would have a capacity of 200,000 tons
per year, and is scheduled to commence in 2012.
x FinanciaIs
Revenues grew 6.1% to SR621mn in 2011 from SR593mn in 2010 due to
higher sales volumes. The total quantity delivered has increased 8.0% YoY
to 142 thousand tons. The adjusted net income declined 21.9% YoY to
SR50mn in 2011 due to an increase in raw material costs and low margin on
sales. We expect net profit to increase significantly YOY in 2012 due to a
non-recurring expense, which the company recorded in 2011 as well as the
increase in the company's financing costs.
x Recent deveIopments
On April 9, 2012, the company announced that it signed a SR75mn contract
to purchase welded pipe production machines for its new factory in
Damman's second industrial city with Suithe (Germany) and Mayer Research
Group (taly).
On February 9, 2012, the company received a SR36mn purchase order to
provide GS Engineering & Construction Company (South Korea) with ERW
pipes to be used in Kuwait Oil Company's project in Wara, which would be
delivered during 3Q12. The company also said that the raw materials to be
used would be provided by Saudi Basic ndustries by the end of 1Q12.

The Saudi real estate sector is likely to continue benefiting from a
large and young population (expected to grow 2.3% annually until
2020), rising number of households, expansion in business activity
and religious tourism in the medium term. n addition, a high
proportion of nationals in the Kingdom's population (69% of the
total population in 2010), vis--vis other GCC countries, is a key
factor driving demand for real estate.
Saudi Arabia's population aggregated 27.3mn in 2010, representing around 63%
of the total GCC population. The Population has been growing 2.7% per year
over the past 20 years which is one of the fastest growth rates in the world.

Residential sector
The supply-demand mismatch in the housing sector widened although growth in
young population and a decline in average household size continue to drive
demand. Saudi Arabia would require an additional 973,000 units over 201015E
and a total of 2.1mn units over the coming decade (215,000 units per year).
However, we believe affordability and lack of access to mortgage credit are the
primary roadblocks impacting demand for housing.
Office sector
Office rental rates in KSA remained relatively stable in 2011. However, as the
over supplied market moves towards more competitive pricing, demand could
potentially increase for high-quality projects in the medium term. n addition,
based on the business volume in Saudi Arabia, the nature of demand and the
current and forthcoming supply of office space, we expect a decline in
occupancy rates across major cities. This could exert downward pressure on
office rentals.
Retail sector
Retail spending, which drives demand for retail spaces, remained strong in 2011
due to population growth and higher household consumption. n Saudi Arabia,
supply of retail space is still very low and rental prices are comparatively lower
compared to other major cities in GCC. Demand for retail space is expected to
increase in tandem with household consumption, which is expected to grow 6
7% per annum over the next few years.

Hospitality sector
The number of visitors to a particular geographical area is the key driver for the
hospitality sector. The hotel industry in KSA is classified into Riyadh, Khobar,
Makkah and Madinah, which attract higher number of international and GCC
travelers (for business or pilgrimage). On the other hand, Jeddah is frequented
by Saudi nationals for leisure or business and, hence, is more dependent on the
local economy. Given the expected growth in tourist arrivals, the hospitality
sector remains a significant opportunity for investors.
The sector's revenue declined 6.3% YoY to SR5bn in 2011 due to a slowdown in
construction activity. Dar Al Arkan remained the largest player, accounting for
66% of the sector's total revenues during the same year. Emaar's revenues rose
fourfold to SR407.7mn in 2011. Saudi Real Estate Company (revenues fell
38.8% YoY) recorded the sharpest fall. The combined revenues of other smaller
players, including Makkah, Arriyadh and KEC, increased of 44% YoY to
SR636.8mn during the year. Overall, the sector's net income grew to SR1.8bn in
2011 from SR1.3bn in 2010, amid lower operating and maintenance costs.

NCBC Recommendation
We remain fairly optimistic about the Saudi real estate sector's prospects in the
long term. The residential sub-sector is expected to report fastest growth in the
near-term, while the office sub-sector is likely to witness an oversupply.
However, fundamental drivers, including favorable demographics, increase in
business activity and religious tourism, remain intact. We are currently covering
three stocks in the real estate sector: Dar Al Arkan, Taiba and Al Akaria.
Exhibit 122: Coverage stocks details
Stock Current Rating PT (SR) Comments
Dar Al Arkan
(4300.SE)
Neutral 10.8 Dar Al Arkan is currently developing a number of capital-intensive projects; however,
banks and financial institutions could be reluctant to lend to the company due to
allegations of a crisis on its website. Furthermore, investors' perception, which has
been impacted by weak earnings and lack of transparency over the last few years,
could improve if management provides further insight into its land bank. The stock
outperformed the TAS index, reflecting the limited upside potential.
Taiba
(4090.SE)
Overweight 27.6 With a portfolio of prime assets, expected revenue growth and improvement in
margins, we believe Taiba's fundamentals, including its status as one of the holiest
cities for Muslims, makes the stock an attractive play in the hospitality sector.

Al-Akaria
(4020.SE)
Neutral 27.3 Good earnings visibility, future growth potential and a large land bank are positives;
however, these are partially offset by a low ROE and risk of excess office supply in
Riyadh.

Saudi ReaI Estate (AKARIA) was estabIished in Riyadh in
1976. At present, it generates aII of its revenues from Riyadh.
Despite the good earnings visibiIity, future growth potentiaI
and a Iarge Iand bank, which are positives for the company,
we remain concerned over the Iow ROE as weII as the
considerabIe increase in capex estimates.
x Business brief
AKARA is one of the pioneers in shopping center construction in the GCC. t
also develops housing and office complexes. n addition, the company
partners with international hotel chain operators to develop industrial/science
parks and hotels. AKARA's principal investment holdings include a 25%
stake in Saudi Company for Al Muaiqliah Commercial Center, 15% stake in
United Glass Company, and 10% stake in Dar Al Tamleek Company.
x FinanciaIs
Sales declined 38.8% YoY to SR265mn in 2011 due to a significant drop in
land sales compared to 2010. Net income fell 18.3% YoY to SR150mn;
however, net margin improved from 42.4% in 2010 to 56.6% in 2011. This
was due to higher occupancy rates at the Plaza complex and other
properties.
x Recent deveIopments
On April 1, 2012, Saudi Real Estate approved the distribution of 5% cash
dividends for the 2H11, making the full-year dividend SR1.00 per share.

The Saudi transport sector continued to consolidate in 2011,
reporting a gradual recovery. However, continued uncertainty
about global economic recovery negatively impacted trade flows
and cargo volumes. Nonetheless, the government's commitment
toward building a robust transport infrastructure supported the
recovery in the sector. The government increased its prospective
spending on transport and communication by 40% YoY (or 5.1% of
the total spending earmarked in the 2012 budget). The sector also
benefits from the strong potential of religious tourism as well as
growing demand from the non-oil sector amid the government's
increasing focus on diversification.
Growth in the transport sector remained relatively flat compared to other GCC
countries in 2011. Nonetheless, the sector's ROE stood at 11.2%, higher than
the GCC average of 9.7%, during the same period.

The sector's revenues rose only 2.2% YoY to SR3.4bn in 2011, primarily due to a
substantial decrease in volumes and selling prices by the end of the year. The
sector's two biggest players exhibited mixed performances in 2011 - NSCSA's
revenues fell 3% YoY, while SAPTCO recorded a sharp increase of 8.5% YoY.
Saudi transport and investment Company (MUBARRAD), the smallest player in
the sector, recorded the steepest decline in revenues (down 6.5% YoY) in 2011.
The sector's profitability dipped 39.5% YoY as the shortage of skilled labor and
inherent inflation increased expenses. SAPTCO recorded the highest growth in
net profit (up 30.5% YoY) in 2011, while MUBARRAD reported over tenfold
decrease in profits.

Although the outlook for the sector remains mixed, a prospective increase in
expansion projects and infrastructure development activities across industries
could support the local freight industry. The Kingdom continues to witness a
steady supply of projects. n December 2011, the Ministry of Transport and
UNDP signed an agreement to develop a transport system in Saudi Arabia; the
project was approved for five years (201216). Also, work on Jeddah's new King
Abdulaziz Airport, six other airport upgrades and 4,200 km of new roads are in
progress. n addition, under the 2012 budget, the government raised the
municipal spending (largely on traffic infrastructure upgrades) by 19% to 4.2% of
the overall proposed spending for 2012.

The media and publishing sector displayed poor performance in
2011, after recording a strong recovery in 2010. Advertising and
educational publishing businesses were resilient, while the
traditional print business continued to decline as the industry
witnessed a structural shift toward digital media. An improvement
