The board of Saudi Arabian retailer Fawaz Abdulaziz Alhokair Co approved the sale of the firm's investment in Spanish clothing retailer Blanco for 350 million riyals ($93 million), the company said in a bourse statement on Wednesday.

The transaction will be proposed to shareholders at the next extraordinary general meeting, Alhokair said on Wednesday, as Alhokair's chairman Fawaz Abdulaziz Alhokair is among the investors in the fund making the offer.
