Saudi’s Kingdom bids for hotels

Kingdom Holding, the investment firm of Saudi Prince Alwaleed bin Talal, wants to buy $375m (£249m) worth of shares in its hotel division listed in Dubai, in a blow to the beleaguered Nasdaq Dubai bourse. Kingdom Hotel's shares have not traded since 11 January and are down 57 per cent since listing on the Nasdaq Dubai in March 2006.
