Middle East ride-hailing company Careem said on Thursday it had secured $200 million in new funding from existing investors, including from Saudi Arabian billionaire Prince Alwaleed bin Talal's Kingdom Holding.
The $200 million was the first close of a funding round in which it expects to raise over $500 million, Careem said in a statement.
The $200 million raised from existing investors also includes Saudi Arabia's Al Tayyar Group and STV, and Japanese e-commerce company Rakuten, Careem said.
It was not immediately clear what Careem's valuation would be after securing the latest funding. It was estimated to be worth about $1 billion as of December 2016.
Reuters reported in March Careem was in early talks to raise as much as $500 million from investors.
Careem, founded in 2012, says it has 30 million registered users in over 120 cities in the Middle East, North Africa, Turkey and Pakistan.
Careem has previously raised funding from German car maker Daimler and China's largest ride-hailing company DiDi Chuxing, among others.
