Bidzina Ivanishvili, leader of Georgian Dream opposition coalition, has sold his real estate assets in Moscow to Russian property group BIN for USD 982.5 million, Unicor, which manages Ivanishvili’s assets in Russia, said in a statement on May 16.

Deal, which is expected to be closed by August 15, includes high-class residential complex Sadovye Kvartaly on a 11-hectare area; a planned luxury hotel managed by Mandarin Oriental Hotel Group; a mixed-use complex Summit, which also includes hotel InterContinental Moscow Tverskaya; 8.8-hectare “Kauchuk” commercial property.

Beneficiary owner of these assets, except of “Kauchuk” commercial property, will be Mikhail Shishkhanov, who owns 97,6% stake in BinBank; “Kauchuk” will be owned by Shishkhanov’s relative Mikhail Gutseriev.

It was announced on May 10, that Ivanishvili sold his bank in Russia, Rossiyskiy Kredit, to a group of six private investors for USD 352 million. It was reported on May 12 that Ivanishvili also sold pharmacy chain Doctor Stoletov.
