Anaam Holding inks MoU to acquire assets in return for new shares
Anaam International Holding Co. has signed on Wednesday a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with Abdullah Abbar & Sons Cold Stores Co. and Dar Al Abbar Holding Co. to acquire real estate and commercial assets held by the two companies, the Saudi-listed company said in a bourse statement.
The deal also includes a usufruct right with an irrevocable purchase right.
The transaction will take place through raising Anaam’s capital and issuing new shares to Abdullah Abbar & Sons Cold Stores Co. and Dar Al Abbar Holding Co. in the value of purchased assets.
The MoU is valid for 12 months or until the general assembly of the purchasing company approves the deal, whichever is closer unless the two parties sign an extension agreement.
The assets to be acquired are located in Jeddah, Riyadh, Dammam, Buraydah and Khamis Mushait.
Anaam Holding has appointed Aldukail Financial Group as financial advisor for the deal.
The deal is subject to the approval of the company’s general assembly as well as all other related regulatory bodies.
