Egyptian Biilionaire Yasseen Mansour Profits $2.8 Million from Real Estate Business

Egyptian billionaire Yasseen Mansour’s fortune has increased significantly over the last ten days as a result of the persistent rise in Palm Hills Development’s shares on the Egyptian Exchange.

Mansour’s share in Palm Hills has increased by EGP 86.98 million ($2.81 million) since Jan. 31, as local investors strengthen their positions in the Cairo-based real estate company.

Over the last ten days, the company’s shares have risen 13.74 percent, from EGP3.13 ($0.101) on Jan. 31 to EGP3.56 ($0.115) at the time of writing, bringing its market capitalization above $335 million and returning millions of dollars to its shareholders, including Mansour.

Mansour, the chairman of Palm Hills Development and one of Egypt’s wealthiest individuals, owns a significant 5.6% stake in the Cairo-based real estate corporation, equivalent to 202,291,698 ordinary shares.

With the double-digit percent increase in the group’s share price, the market value of the Egyptian billionaire’s stake has increased by EGP 86.98 million ($2.81 million) since Jan. 31, rising from EGP633.17 million ($20.50 million) on Jan. 31 to EGP 720.16 billion ($23.30 million) at the time of writing.
