Digiturk has been acquired by Qatar Seyh Nasser Al-Khelaifi

It’s been reported that Digiturk has been acquired by Qatar Seyh Nasser Al-Khelaifi for $820m.

The assets of Digiturk as well as the assets of eleven other companies were seized in May 2013 by the Turkish Savings Deposit Insurance Fund, a Turkish government’s agency, after parent Cukurova Group failed to meet debt obligations. Cukurova currently controls 53% of Digiturk’ shares while the rest is in the hands of private equity fund Providence Equity Partners.

Nasser Al-Khelaifi is also Chairman of Qatar Sports Investments, President of the Qatar Tennis Federation (QTF) and Vice President of the Asian Tennis Federation for West Asia (ATF).
