Public Investment Corporation Limited Key Developments
PIC Reportedly Eyeing Barclays Africa
Nov 7 16
Public Investment Corporation Limited (PIC) may acquire stake in Barclays Africa Group Limited (JSE:BGA). Two sources close to the matter said that PICL has sought approval from South Africa's central bank to raise its stake in Barclays Africa. Barclays Africa's parent, Barclays Bank PLC (LSE:BARC) wants to reduce its holding to below 20%, which would make it an equity investment rather than a subsidiary. The plan is part of a broader sale by the company of its African assets as it shifts to focus on the United States and Britain. PIC could buy at least an additional 31% stake, the sources indicated. The source stated, “PIC has always looked at Barclays Plc's retreat as an opportunity to create a black-owned bank, but there aren't many people with deep pockets to make that happen.” The news report stated that the South African Reserve Bank's spokesman Jabulani Sikhakhane declined to comment. Sources with knowledge of the matter told Reuters in September 2016 that former Barclays Plc, Chief Bob Diamond was still looking to acquire the remaining 50%.
