Jabal Omar to get 3 bln Riyal Saudi Govt Loan

Saudi developer Jabal Omar has signed a loan agreement for 3 billion riyals ($800 million) with the finance ministry to complete some of its projects in Mecca, the company announced late on Tuesday.

“The loan will be repayed over eight years, two of which are a grace period,” according to a statement issued via the bourse.

Jabal Omar is in charge of developing an area near the Grand Mosque in Mecca, Islam’s holiest city. The project will include luxury hotels, shops and houses.

The developer sought shareholder approval last year for a change in its basic charter that would allow it to take on more debt.

In May Jabal Omar’s shareholders approved a 38.4 percent capital increase to 9.3 billion riyals through a rights issue, of which part of the proceeds went to pay back a 350 million riyal bridge loan from Al-Rajhi Bank.

The prospectus posted on the Capital Markets Authority website in May said the largest part of the cost of the first phase of its project will be financed through a syndicated loan from local banks, worth up to 5 billion riyals.

Last year, in October, the firm secured a 1.35 billion riyal bridge loan from local banks and said it would finance it through the 5 billion riyal syndicated loan.     ($1 = 3.75 Saudi riyals)     (Reporting by Asma Alsharif)
