UAE-based Abraaj Group has submitted a mandatory tender offer to acquire all the shares in the Cairo Medical Centre, Bloomberg has reported. The hospital group, which has a market value of EGP206.5m ($29m), is a tertiary care facility with 177 beds located in east Cairo. The offer for the hospital group is conditional on 51% of the outstanding shares being tendered, Dubai-based Abraaj said.
