PIF’s remaining stake equates to 72 million shares or 60 per cent of the company’s share capital.

Eyas AlDossari, head of the investment advisory in the MENA Investments Division at PIF, said: “This transaction is in line with PIF’s strategy to recycle the fund’s capital and invest in emerging and promising sectors in the local economy. The strong interest generated from domestic and international investors is indicative of Saudi Tadawul Group Holding Company’s ability to attract a broad base of investors as one of the leading companies listed on the Saudi Exchange.”

The transaction also contributes to increasing the company’s free float, enhancing the liquidity of the market for both local and international investors, and is expected to contribute to the value creation for the company’s shareholders and for the Saudi market as a whole.
