A fortress balance sheet and very substantial net worth are core strengths of The Olayan Group. The Group has the financial capability to participate in major transactions, the resilience to withstand market shocks, and the agility to capitalize quickly on high-value opportunities as they arise.
The Group’s exceptional term credit lines with an array of banking partners maximizes this flexibility. Many of these banking relationships are decades old. As a private concern, the Group does not publicly disclose its financials, but of course it maintains full transparency with credit and risk officers at its partner banks.
The Group also has non-financial advantages that contribute to the overall strength of the enterprise. We have relatively flat management structure, short decision-making lines, and close coordination between offices. Our business information and communication systems are state-of-art, backed by cybersecurity.
Our management and strategies are consistent. Many of our executives measure their tenure with the organization in decades, as do employees at every level.
The Group also has strong governance. Its shareholders are active, committed, and farsighted. Corporate profits are reinvested in the enterprise at an exceptionally high rate. The Olayan Group Corporate Board includes both senior executives of the Group and independent directors. Several are members of storied family businesses in the U.S. and Europe who bring especially valuable experience to the table.
Both The Olayan Group and the founder’s family, now in the early stages of its fourth generation, have carried out a highly organized and well-structured program to ensure continuity and smooth succession for the future.
