MNT Investments, a GB Auto subsidiary which is owned by GB Capital, agreed to sell almost 22% stake to Chimera Investments’ Chimprop 2 Investments.
GB Auto is selling a 7.5% indirect stake in MNT Investments for $60 million with an earnout component that could reach $71.3 million. This transaction brings down GB Auto’s indirect stake in MNT to 49.5%
MNT indirectly owns a majority stake in Mashroey and Tasaheel Microfinance which are companies in consumer finance and microfinance operating in Egypt.
Arqaam Capital was the exclusive sell-side financial advisor to GB Auto in this transaction. Chimera Investments acquired a 56% stake in Egypt’s investment bank Beltone Financial earlier this year.
MNT BV, which is a Netherlands corporation and a subsidiary of Ghabbour Auto, entered into a share swap agreement last June with Halan to create FinTech super app MNT-Halan.
