Ebix wraps up controlling stake acquisition in Weizmann Forex

February 11, 2019

EbixCash World Money, the Indian arm of on-demand software and e-commerce services provider Ebix, has concluded the purchase of a 74.84% controlling stake in India’s Weizmann Forex.

The acquisition was announced last month. Ebix financed the deal through its cash reserves.

As per the agreed terms of the transaction, EbixCash made a public offer to buy the remaining Weizmann Forex shares for INR528 ($7.54) per share.

“The purchase valued 100% of Weizmann Forex at $65.94 million, net of $17.51 million of cash remaining in the business,” Ebix said in a statement.

Weizmann will now be merged into the EbixCash Financial Exchange in India and abroad.

According to Ebix, the deal will contribute at least 15 cents a share in additional diluted EPS over a year.
