In the end, the Banque Tuniso-Koweïtienne (BTK) was not bought-out by the Tunisian state, as previously announced in December 2019. The decision to abandon the deal was, according to our sources, strongly influenced by Prime Minister Hichem Mechichi, who was appointed in July. The shareholding therefore remains unchanged, with BPCE retaining 60% of the Tunisian bank’s capital, and Tunis and the Kuwaiti state each holding 20%. Neither BPCE nor the Tunisian Prime Minister’s office have responded to our requests for comment.
