The Gilinski Group continues to get closer to its goal of obtaining up to an additional 6.25% in Grupo de Inversiones Suramericana. Today, according to figures revealed by the Colombian Stock Exchange (BVC), 230 new OPA acceptances were registered, with which the consolidated figure amounts to 1.11 million species sold, equivalent to 3.81% of the total to be purchased.

As for Grupo Nutresa, the exchange registered only 79 acceptances for 108,184 titles. These figures led to the total amount granted being 276,932 papers and 0.26% of the maximum sought by the Caleño. It is expected that, if the offer is successful, Jaime Gilinski will manage to have 31.5% in Sura, thus being the largest shareholder, and 50.4% of the food company.

The period in which the shareholders of both companies will be able to sell will go until February 28, despite the fact that the offeror has the power to extend said term if they so wish until completing the maximum 30 business days of the regulation.
