The Saudi Public Investment Fund will raise 12 billion riyals ($3.2 billion) by selling a 6% stake in the Saudi Telecom Company, after setting the deal price in a secondary offering.
The Saudi Public Investment Fund set the final price for selling 120 million shares, at 100 riyals per share, at the minimum price range from 100 to 116 riyals, after completing the process of building a book of orders by institutions.
The final offering price, which was announced today, Friday, is equivalent to a discount rate of 9.1% compared to the closing price of the share on Thursday, December 9, 2021.
