RIO DE JANEIRO, BRAZIL - Argentine banking and financial services company Grupo Supervielle saw its shares spike over 50% on Thursday, February 18th, on rumors of a potential takeover, hitting the highest level since 2018 before easing back to be up around 14%.
Traders said that unsubstantiated talk of a potential sale to a Brazilian buyer had pushed up the shares as well as the firm’s American Depositary Receipts (ADRs).
“There is a rumor that it is being sold to a powerful group in Brazil, but nothing is known,” one trader told Reuters.
