The Gupta Family said:
Since our decision to step down from all executive and non-executive positions in all our South African business in April 2016, the local management team has grown our businesses from strength to strength, with turnover and profits showing good growth and more jobs created.
As a family, we now believe that the time is right for us to exit our shareholding of the South African businesses which we believe will benefit our existing employees, and lead to further growth in the businesses.
As such, we announce today our intention to sell all of our shareholding in South Africa by the end of the year.
We believe that this decision is in the best interests of our business, the country and our colleagues
We are already in discussions with several international prospective buyers and will soon be in a position to make further announcements.
We believe that this decision is in the best interests of our business, the country and our colleagues.
