The El-Sewedy family, known as one of Egypt’s billionaire families, has seen a considerable increase in their wealth. Their stake in Elsewedy Electric has increased to $1.6 billion due to recent share price increases on the Egyptian Exchange.

In the last two weeks, the market value of the El-Sewedy family’s holding in Elsewedy Electric increased by EGP4.02 billion ($129.96 million). The recent jump is being driven by increased investor interest in the Cairo-based firm.

Elsewedy Electric shares have risen 8.84 percent in 14 days, from EGP30.78 ($0.995) on Feb. 6 to EGP33.50 ($1.083). This boost has increased its market capitalization to more than $2.3 billion, with stockholders profiting by millions of dollars in the last two weeks.

Ahmed El-Sewedy and his siblings, Sadek and Mohammed, own 68.1 percent of the corporation, which translates to 1,478,358,330 ordinary shares.

As a result of the recent increase in the company’s shares, the market value of the family’s joint ownership has increased by EGP4.02 billion ($129.96 million), from EGP45.5 billion ($1.47 billion) on February 6 to EGP49.53 billion ($1.6 billion) at the time of writing.

This increase in the market value of the family’s interest strengthens their position as one of Egypt’s billionaires and important investors on the Egyptian Exchange.
