Saudi Arabia’s Seera Group has signed a non-binding term sheet with the kingdom’s Public Investment Fund (PIF), which will see the fund invest SAR 1.554 ($414 million) in its subsidiary Almosafer Travel and Tourism Company.
Almosafer will use the capital to scale its inbound, outbound, religious and domestic tourism operations, Seera Group said in a statement to the Saudi Stock Exchange, Tadawul.
The investment in the wholly owned subsidiary is based on a preliminary pre-money enterprise value of SAR 3.75 billion ($1 billion) including an earn-out amount, Seera said.
Almosafer operates in consumer and business travel as well as destination management, Hajj and Umrah.
PIF aims to have a shareholding of 30% for a consideration of SAR 1.554 billion, including up to SAR 386 million earning out amount, to be paid to Almosafer in subscription for new shares in Almosafer, the statement added.
