LOLC Group announced yesterday it has acquired a 60% stake in Thaneakea Phum Cambodia (TPC), for $ 20.3 million.
The acquisition was through LOLC’s fully-owned subsidiary, LOLC Micro Investments Ltd. (LOMI), which is the microfinance investment arm of LOLC.
The LOLC Group has received all required regulatory approvals, including approvals from the Central bank of Sri Lanka, Ministry of Finance of Sri Lanka, National Bank of Cambodia and the Ministry of Commerce of Cambodia for the acquisition.
