Stellar Capital has sold a 51,1% controlling interest in Tellumat, the diversified electronics and communications group, to black-owned investment group Masimong Technologies. Total consideration for the black economic empowerment (BEE) transaction, concluded on May 19, is R180,4 million. The deal is subject to approval by competition authorities and the companies’ respective boards.

Stellar remains upbeat about Tellumat’s future prospects, and will be retaining its remaining shareholding at 48,9%.
