Lone Star Funds Key Developments

Four Leading Bids For Africa-Israel

Four bids had passed to the next stage following the meeting of bondholders' representatives of Africa-Israel Investments Ltd (TASE:AFIL). The four bids were by Brosh Funds Management Ltd., Globalworth Real Estate Investment Limited (AIM:GWI), Patron Capital Limited and Lone Star Funds. As of now, current controlling shareholder Lev Leviev, who submitted a binding bid in cooperation with Moti Ben-Moshe, is not on the list of leading bids. Leviev himself, however, does not require due diligence, and therefore can submit a revised binding bid with partner at the end of the second stage in the process, should they wish to do so.

Lone Star Funds Makes Strongest Bid To Buy Novo Banco

Banco de Portugal said that Lone Star Funds made the strongest bid for Novo Banco, S.A. The Bank of Portugal says it has invited the fund, based in Dallas, Texas, to deepen negotiations over the possible purchase, though it said rival bidders have expressed a willingness to improve their offers and would not be excluded.
