Planet Says Arranged Debt for EFG Bid, Waiting for Due Diligence

May 31 (Bloomberg) -- Planet Investment Banking raised $650 million in debt and a “lower amount” in equity for its planned offer to take over Egyptian investment bank EFG-Hermes Holding SAE, Chief Executive Officer Ahmed El Houssieny said.

The company is backed by domestic, regional and international investors, including a member of the ruling family of Sharjah, United Arab Emirates, El Houssieny said in a telephone interview today.

“The only thing between us and a public tender offer is due diligence,” he said.
