RIYADH: According to MAGNiTT, the private equity market in Saudi Arabia has experienced growth over the last five years, with transactions totaling $4 billion in 2023.

The venture data platform published a report in collaboration with Saudi Venture Capital Co. that showed a notable increase in private equity activity in the Kingdom. The industry has experienced remarkable growth since 2020, reaching a 3.7 multiple in 2021 over the prior year and an exponential jump to 5.9 times in 2022 over the prior year.

Capital infusion by individuals or organizations into privately held businesses that are not listed on stock exchanges is known as private equity investing.

These investments, which are overseen by private equity companies, are made with the intention of increasing the company’s value through operational and strategic efficiencies and later selling it for a profit.

Long-term investments, proactive management, and better risk-reward profiles define this industry.

Unlike venture capital, which employs equity funding to focus on early-stage businesses with strong growth potential, frequently in the tech industry, private equity usually makes investments in more established companies.
