Spain's Bankia sells Indra stake to state holding company SEPI
MADRID Aug 2 (Reuters) - Spanish nationalised bank BFA-Bankia said on Friday it sold a 20.1 percent stake in technology company Indra to state holding company SEPI for 337 million euros ($447.6 million).
The sale netted BFA-Bankia, under pressure to sell assets since a European bail-out last year, 43 million euros in capital gains, the bank said.
Bankia sold the stake at a price of 10.20 euros per share, a 2.5 percent discount to its closing price on Friday. SEPI is now the biggest shareholder in Indra.
