The largest shareholder in Wizz Air plans to sell up to £400 million-worth of shares in the Hungarian low-cost airline.
Private Equity firm Indigo Partners owns 15 million shares, or a 17.5% stake, in Wizz Air as of Monday.
Based on the last closing price of Wizz Air shares, Indigo Partners’ stake in the airline amounts to about £825 million.
The share placing is due to be completed by Thursday, according to Barclays Bank, which is acting as the global co-ordinator on the deal.
Wizz Air said it will not receive any proceeds from the transaction.
Passenger numbers at Wizz Air plunged 87% in February to 383,000 from three million a year earlier due to Covid-19 travel restrictions.
