Actis LLP acquired a stake in Tracker Ltd., South Africa’s biggest vehicle tracking company, from Remgro Ltd. (REM) in a 3.9 billion-rand ($481 million) buy-out that has resulted in a new ownership structure.
Other shareholders in Tracker have re-organized their holdings, Tracker’s owners said in an e-mailed statement today. The Mineworkers Investment Co. will increase its stake while FirstRand Bank Ltd. restructures its investment to include RMB, according to the statement.
Remgro said on Sept. 20 that it sold its stake for about 1.2 billion rand, without saying who the buyer was.
