It said it was selling land located in Dhahban area in Jeddah - an area of 330,000 sq m - valued at SR215.5m ($57.4m).

The company said in a statement published by Saudi Press Agency that the proceeds will finance the company's acquisition of 100 percent of shares in Emirates National Factory for Plastic Industries.
