The Industrialisation and Energy Service Company (Taqa) has announced the closure of its 100% acquisition of Al Mansoori Petroleum Services (AMPS), expanding Taqa's Well Solutions business internationally.
The acquisition is funded by a capital increase led by Taqa's existing major shareholders. This investment brings to Taqa a long-established, well-diversified Mena-based business with a track record of strong performance and longstanding relationships with large oil & gas companies in the region.
The combined businesses employ over 5,500 employees, serving a wide and diverse customer base across 20 countries, creating a regional and global integrated Well Solutions business headquartered in Dhahran, Saudi Arabia.
"I would like to thank Taqa Shareholders for their trust in Taqa and their commitment to support Taqa's growth journey and progressive plans that are aligned with the kingdom's Vision 2030. The capital increase will position Taqa as an international company operating across multiple geographies, a true Saudi national champion," said Engineer Ahmed Al Zahrani, Taqa's Chairman of the Board.
Khalid M Nouh, CEO of Taqa, said: "Together, we are better positioned to continue our journey into profitable growth through the unique opportunity to build upon our combined portfolio, strong business acumen, recognised brand and quality products and services. Our focus remains to provide exceptional products and services to our customers while creating the highest value for our shareholders and people."-- TradeArabia News Service
