Talaat Moustafa Group Holding, Egypt’s largest publicly traded property developer, gained the most in more than a month after the public prosecutor ended an investigation into a land purchase for its biggest project.
The shares rose 3.6 percent to 7.25 Egyptian pounds at 11:35 a.m. in Cairo, the biggest gain since July 13.
The public prosecutor ended the probe into the sale of land by the state-run Urban Communities Authority to Talaat Moustafa for its residential Madinaty project, Al Akhbar reported, without saying where it got the information. The investigation followed a complaint filed by 45 parliament members, it said.
An Egyptian court is due to issue Sept. 14 a ruling on the validity of the Madinaty land sale to Talaat Moustafa based on a separate lawsuit.
