SPIMACO, Modon ink deal to lease land for new plant
Saudi Pharmaceutical Industries & Medical Appliances Corporation (SPIMACO) on Sunday signed a 20-year agreement with the Saudi Industrial Property Authority (MODON) to lease a land plot for its new plant.
The land, with a total area of 95,500 square meters, is located in the Second Industrial City in Qassim, the company said in a statement to Tadawul.
The pharmaceutical maker is currently completing the designs and will announce the project implementation period along with any other developments later on.
The statement didn’t give a value for the lease deal.
In February 2016, SPIMACO’s board of directors approved the establishment of a new entity with SAR 100 million capital specializing in quasi-pharmaceutical and medical cosmetics.
SPIMACO will own 65 percent of the new firm, while its 95-percent owned subsidiary ARAC Health Care, will hold a 15 percent stake.
The Jordan-based Arab Company for Drug Industries and Medical Appliances (ACDIMA), which owns 20.48 percent of SPIMACO, will hold a 20 percent stake in the new company.
