RIYADH — Saudi food delivery app Jahez signed a share purchase agreement (SPA) to acquire 100% share capital of The Chefz for SR650 million ($172.9 million), according to a bourse filing on Wednesday.

The deal is still subject to regulatory approval and is expected to close in the first quarter of 2023, the filing mentioned.

The transaction includes a cash consideration worth SR325 million and the issuance of new shares in Jahez with a value of SR325 million, representing 5% of the delivery firm’s share capital.

As part of the deal, the founding members of The Chefz will receive an earn-out of SR100 million in cash, subject to various performance-related targets attained between January 1, 2022 and December 31, 2022.

Once the acquisition is completed, the share capital of Jahez will increase from SR104.9 million to SR108.7 million.
