SAAF is a manufacturer of recycled polypropylene granules and nonwoven fabric.
Takween said in a stock exchange statement that 'the transaction price is based on a total value of 337.5 million Saudi riyals - $90 million - for 100 percent of the shares of SAAF.'
It said the total transaction cash inflow will be 304.7 million riyals ($81 million) comprising net purchase price amount of 197.64 million riyals and reimbursement of working capital of 107.06 million riyals.
Dubai Financial Services Authority-regulated Himmah Capital acted as financial advisor to Takween on the transaction.
Last month, Takween said in a Tadawul statement that it had capitalised part of SAAF's dues owed to it, amounting to 53 million riyals, thereby increasing SAAF's capital from 131.8 million riyals to 184.8 million riyals, and increasing JOFO's share acquisition volume to 129,360 instead of 92,260 shares under the MoU.
Takween Advanced Industries manufactures and sells plastic packaging products and non-woven fabrics with factories in Saudi Arabia and Egypt, according to company's profile on the exchange's website.
