Commercial International Bank (CIB Egypt) Company Profile

Commercial International Bank (CIB) was established in 1975 as a joint venture between the National Bank of Egypt “NBE” (51%) and the Chase Manhattan Bank (49%) under the name "Chase National Bank of Egypt”. Following Chase's decision to divest its equity stake in 1987, NBE increased its shareholding to 99.9%, and the bank name was changed to Commercial International Bank (Egypt) S.A.E. NBE’s stake gradually decreased to 18.7% through several public offerings. In 2006, a Consortium led by Ripplewood Holdings acquired NBE stake. In July 2009, Actis, a leading emerging markets private equity firm, invested US $244 million to acquire CIB shares. Actis acquired then 50% of the stake held by the Consortium. Five months later, Ripplewood sold its remaining position of 4.7% through the open market, which marked the successful transition of strategic partnership to be with Actis, who then became the largest shareholder with a 9.1% stake. In March 2014, Actis sold a portion of its holding in CIB, representing 2.6% of Bank’s total outstanding shares, in the open market to a group of international investors. In May 2014, Actis, successfully realized its investment in CIB and sold its remaining 6.5% to Subsidiaries wholly owned by Fairfax Financial Holdings Ltd.
