SAO PAULO, July 11 (Reuters) - Brazilian antitrust watchdog Cade has approved Mexican lender Inbursa’s acquisition of a roughly 33% stake in the Brazilian unit of payment technology company Global Payments Inc, according to a report from the regulator.
Inbursa, which is controlled by the family of billionaire Carlos Slim, intends to have a card processor business in Brazil through Banco Inbursa SA.
Cade said Inbursa informed it that Global Payments and Slim’s Brazilian subsidiary of America Movil may forge a partnership in the future.
