MADRID Oct 9 Spain's bailed-out lender Bankia
and construction group FCC are looking to
sell their controlling stake in property firm Realia
and are close to appointing an adviser, three people familiar
with the situation said.
The shareholders own nearly 58 percent of Realia, which has
a market capitalisation of nearly 200 million euros ($272
million) and is one of the rare Spanish property groups to
survive a 2008 real estate crash as rivals went bankrupt.
FCC and Bankia declined to comment.
