The Central Bank gave its seal of approval for a Credit Libanais deal which saw the entry of new partners and the increase in shares of the existing ones, bankers said Thursday.The Central Bank meeting, which was headed by Gov. Riad Salameh, accepted the request of Credit Libanais to sell part of the shares controlled by Cairo-based EFG Hermes to a group of Lebanese and Arab investors.The increase in the holdings of CIH and Demerjian totals to less than 12 percent of the bank's shares, meaning it's still not known who will acquire much of EFG Hermes' holding – some 28 percent of Credit Libanais ownership.
