Nayifat, a consumer-focused Islamic finance firm, said in a statement that it plans a sale of 35 million shares to institutional and retail investors.
The sale of existing shares will be made by its current shareholders, it said.
Falcom Holding, a Saudi firm which owns businesses in leasing and financing of vehicles, as well as brokerage services, investment advisory and asset management, holds a 73.86% stake in Nayifat.
IPO activity in Saudi Arabia has boomed in recent years, with several companies considering flotations.
A public share sale will allow Nayifat to capitalise “on its core consumer business while growing its portfolio of financing solutions such as credit cards, SME lending and its new
crowd funding platform,” it added.
Nayifat’s intention to float did not include details of how much it plans to raise in the IPO or give a price range.
