The wealthy Khamis family of Egypt, well-known for their pivotal role in the carpet industry, has profited more than $21 million from their stake in Oriental Weavers in less than ten weeks, as value investors continue to scoop up stakes in the company, pushing its share price above key technical levels on the Egyptian Exchange.

This huge growth has resulted in a significant increase in Oriental Weavers’ shares and impressive gains for the billionaire family as a result of ongoing purchasing pressures on the Egyptian Stock Exchange.

Since September 13, the market value of the Khamis family’s interest in Oriental Weavers has climbed by $21.3 million, as local bourse investors continue to raise their stakes in the Cairo-based firm.

The market value of the affluent Khamis family’s interest has increased by $21.31 million in just 69 days, from $200.33 million on Sept. 13 to $221.65 million at the time of writing, as a result of the double-digit percent increase in the group’s share price.

Oriental Weavers’ earnings increased significantly in the first nine months of 2023, with profit after tax increasing to $44.65 million, up from $18.88 million in the same period in 2022.
