The majority owner of Bulgaria's Corporate Commercial Bank Jsc, Bromak Single Member Ltd, announced Tuesday it had made a deal for the sale of 30% of the bank's capital to the State Joint Reserve Fund of the Sultan of Oman, Qaboos ibn Sa'id.

The deal still has to be approved by the Bulgarian National Bank and the Competition Protection Agency.

It has already realized a number of investments in Bulgaria, and sees the acquisition of part of the shareholding capital of the Corporate Commercial Bank as furthering its investment strategy in the country.
