Jadwa Investment Portfolio Company completes dividend capitalization

The transaction allowed Jadwa Refining Opportunity Fund to return 64% of invested capital to fund investors while maintaining the same ownership stake in the company.

Riyadh: Innova Holdings Limited, a private equity portfolio company of Jadwa Investment, recently completed a SAR 187.5 million dividend recapitalization transaction. The transaction allowed Jadwa Refining Opportunity Fund, a private equity fund managed by Jadwa Investment, to return 64% of invested capital to fund investors while maintaining the same ownership stake in the company.

Jadwa Refining Opportunity Fund acquired a significant minority stake in Innova Holdings in 2015.  Following the acquisition, Innova has initiated a major construction of a new processing facility that will allow it to triple its production capacity.

Tariq Al-Sudairy, Managing Director and CEO of Jadwa Investment, commented: “When we acquired Innova, it marked our first private equity investment outside Saudi Arabia as we had recognized its potential for growth. We believe that the abundance of petrochemical by-products in the GCC, Innova’s innovative expansion plans, and the depth and expertise of its management team continue to drive the company’s growth prospects as one of leading regional players in the petrochemical by-products industry. We are pleased to see that the recently completed dividend recapitalization transaction has allowed our investors to realize a portion of the investment’s value creation.”

Headquartered in the UAE, Innova is an integrated petrochemical by-products and used lube oil processing, trading, and logistics company. Through its advanced facilities, Innova transforms petrochemical by-products and used lube oil into value-added products that are used in numerous industries, including construction, pharmaceuticals, and textiles. The company employs a versatile team of professionals, including scientists and researchers, engineers and marketing professionals, working together to serve international clients worldwide.

Besides the Innova acquisition, Jadwa has in total deployed around SAR 6 billion in private equity investments across multiple sectors, including manufacturing, industrial, waste management, healthcare, hospitality and entertainment, food and beverage, building materials, consumer electronics, and oil & lubricants.
