Cascade will buy 23.8% of Prince Alwaleed’s stake to own 71.3% of Four Seasons, valuing the hotel chain at $10 billion on an enterprise basis.

Prince Alwaleed, through investment vehicle Kingdom Holding Co., will continue to own the remaining stake, Four Seasons said.

The billionaire prince is one of Saudi Arabia’s top businessmen and is known for his bets on Citigroup (NYSE:C) and other top western companies.
