Stone sells part of his position at Inter
Stone sold part of its position in Banco Inter, exercising the option to cashout that the bank offered to its shareholders as part of its restructuring and listing on Nasdaq.
The acquirer of the green machine said just now that it sold 21.5% of its total position, which was around 5% of the bank’s capital.
the limit of cashout was a maximum of 10% of each shareholder’s position, but as not all investors asked for cashout, the percentage allowed rose to 21.5%.
Stone invested in Inter in June last year, buying BRL 2.5 billion in the follow-on at BRL 57.8 per unit.
