SEOUL (Reuters) – South Korean builder Hyundai Development Co (KS:) said on Friday its consortium has closed on its 2.5 trillion won ($2.16 billion) acquisition of a controlling stake in the country’s second-biggest carrier Asiana Airlines Inc (KS:).
Hyundai Development said out of the 2.5 trillion won its consortium with Mirae Asset (KS:) will pay for the acquisition, its portion was 2.01 trillion won.
The airline’s top shareholder, Kumho Industrial Co Ltd (KS:), put its 31.05% stake up for sale earlier this year as it came under pressure from Asiana creditors to reduce debt at the loss-making carrier.
