There is a sense of adventure in the kingdom that we have not seen before, and we are expertly positioned, as part of the Cenomi ecosystem, to fulfil that, and more.“
Mourad added: “We have created a platform that allows our lifestyle destinations and fashion retail business to work ever closer, together with our new loyalty program and our existing and new ecommerce platforms, to create a true lifestyle powerhouse.”

The signing took place between Arabian Centres’ CEO, Alison Rehill-Erguven and Suleiman Al Harbi, Deputy Chief Executive Officer, Adeer Real Estate.
The agreement follows recent approval of the programme from the company’s Board of Directors to sell an identified portfolio of non-core landbank assets, with a book value circa SAR 1.2 billion and a market valuation estimated at more than SAR 2 billion. The assets were identified by a study that showed they were best suited for residential or office space development and did not support Arabian Centres’ strategic priorities of developing best in class lifestyle destinations.
Alison Rehill-Erguven, CEO, Arabian Centres, said: “This is a strategically important programme for Arabian Centres, as we further align our future growth priorities with our overarching business initiatives. Adeer Real Estate is a leader in the sale of large-scale land and developments and intrinsically understands both the monetary and locational value of these assets, I am confident that this agreement will support the continued success of this programme.”

The decision came following the Capital Markets Authority’s announcement earlier this year, which permitted listed companies to adopt “FMV” for the financial periods starting 2022 onwards. FMV is the most used practice by the biggest real estate companies globally, and it is in accordance with the IAS 40 accounting standards.
By adopting FVM, ACC’s investment properties will be presented at their fair value in the financial statements which will reflect the traded market value of these assets in accordance with the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (“RICS”) that comply with the international valuation standards.
In addition, the implementation of this accounting standard will boost ACC’s financial position, including improving leverage ratios, triggering an increase in shareholder equity and retained earnings balance by approximately SAR 10 billion. This in turn will increase the book value per share from approximately SAR 12 to around SAR 34, providing ACC with an additional ability to maximize shareholders returns, and a higher flexibility in coping with the sector’s future developments and mitigating its associated risks.
ARABIAN CENTRES ADOPTS FAIR VALUE MODEL,
• Net assets will increase from SAR 16 billion (cost model) as recorded at cost model to approximately SAR 26 billion (market value) • Increases the book value per share from approximately SAR 12 to SAR 34 • Aligns with international best practice as the company pursues continued and ambitious growth plans
