Zain Saudi Arabia, the country's third mobile operator, signed a two-year refinancing agreement worth SR2.25billion ($600m) to help fund its capital projects and meet "previous obligations", according to a report from Reuters.

The telco signed the agreement, which is Shariah compliant, with Saudi Arabian banks including Arab National Bank and Banque Saudi Fransi, on April 11, according to a statement posted on the Saudi Arabian bourse.

The deal came just two days after Zain Group confirmed that it had signed a term sheet agreement with Batelco and Kingdom Holding to sell its 25% stake in Zain Saudi Arabia.
