Egyptian businessman Hisham Talaat Moustafa, the billionaire chairman of Talaat Moustafa Group (TMG) Holding, is facing fresh financial setbacks. This follows a $727-million plunge in his net worth between March 6-9 due to the Egyptian pound devaluation.

According to data tracked by Billionaire.Africa the market value of Hisham Talaat Moustafa’s stake in TMG has declined by EGP8.53 billion ($180.19 million) over the past 26 days, amid sustained selling pressures in the shares of the leading group on the Egyptian Exchange.

Talaat Moustafa Group (TMG) Holding is a leading player in Egypt’s real estate sector with a long history dating back to its founding in the early 1960s. It presently ranks as one of the largest real estate developers in Egypt.

Hisham Talaat Moustafa, the CEO, who steered TMG Holding to its current heights in Egypt’s urban development, holds a controlling stake of 43.16 percent in the group, representing 890,633,483 ordinary shares.

TMG’s share price on the Egyptian Exchange has fallen 12.42 percent since March 9, dropping from EGP77.11 ($1.62764) to EGP 67.53 ($1.4254). This decline has pushed the company’s market capitalization below $3 billion, resulting in losses for stakeholders, including Moustafa.
