Investors become less attractive to put in these IPO houses that causes under pricing of IPO. Although, MENA part has the limited figure of IPO but at the same clip under pricing is the common and prevailing phenomenon ( Chahine & A ; Tohme 2009 ) . The other ground for the phenomenon of under pricing is the presence of foreign strategic stockholder that has great impact on the attempts to cut down under pricing. Therefore, the corporate administration patterns addition transparence and equity and besides improves the revelation that may be effectual to cut down the under pricing of IPO houses. The direction of the companies should follow the sound corporate administration patterns that would be effectual to heighten the capital entree ability of the concerns and to cut down the job of under pricing ( Chahine & A ; Tohme 2009 ) .
