Saudi Oger mulls sale of airport operator stake

Saudi Oger is mulling the sale of its stake in the company that operates Madinah airport to Turkish contractor TAV.
Saudi Oger is mulling the sale of its stake in the company that operates Madinah airport to Turkish contractor TAV.

Contractor Saudi Oger is said to be considering the sale of its stake in the company that operates the kingdom's Madinah airport. 

Citing Bloomberg, Arabian Business reported that the contractor is in talks with Turkish partner TAV to sell a 16.7% stake in Tibah Airports Company. 

In a statement to the Istanbul bourse, TAV said its stake in the airport would increase from 33.3% to 50% should the deal be finalised. 

Saudi Oger reportedly owns 33.3% of Tibah with Al Rajhi Group, according to Bloomberg

The slowdown in Saudi Arabia's construction sector has deeply impacted Oger, which was last month reported to be in talks over its sale to the kingdom's government. 

The contractor has also grappled with salary payments to its employees.
