On December 20, 2018, Alantra announced that it had entered into an agreement to acquire a strategic stake in Access Capital Partners.
Under the terms of the agreement, Alantra will pay €19 million in cash for a 24.5% interest in Access Capital Partners (“Access Capital”) from OP Financial Group. Alantra will then have an option to purchase OP Financial Group’s remaining interest, which would bring Alantra’s interest to 49% and result in Alantra being Access Capital’s only strategic shareholder over time.
