Mustek to sell Comztek stake

South Africa: broadliner Mustek aims to sell its stake in Comztek and Rectron Australia within the next year. Mustek has started an “active” programme to locate buyers and complete its plan to dispose of the units. Mustek owns about 42% of Comztek. Almost two years ago, a bid by London- and Johannesburg-listed Datatec to buy Comztek, for €9.45m, fell through. Mustek acquired the Comztek stake when it helped management purchase the company in 1999. Mustek founder and CEO David Kan says the reason behind the sale is that Mustek does not have a controlling stake in the distributor. He is confident a deal will be signed in the next 12 months (source : IT Web South Africa).
