Besides this, the company also focuses on the establishment of factories and lab connected with cement industries.

The value of the rescheduled portion (the financing balance) is SR380.82 million, said the cement company in its filing to the Saudi bourse Tadawul.

The previous bank credit repayment period was six years, of which one was a grace year which began on March 13, 2018 and ended on the same day last year.

The payment of instalments, which began on June 13, is scheduled to end in 2024 with the amount being repaid in a total of 20 instalments on the Islamic financing terms, said the statement.
