Mubadala in talks to buy stake in hotel group from 1MDB-linked Low: FT | Reuters:

"UAE state fund Mubadala Development Co PJSC is in talks with the U.S. Department of Justice for approval to buy the rest of the partially-owned Viceroy Hotel Group from Jho Low, a financier linked by prosecutors to Malaysia's 1MDB corruption scandal, the Financial Times reported on Sunday. Mubadala hoped to finalize a deal, that would need the DoJ's approval, to buy 50 percent of Viceroy Hotel Group "within a matter of days," the Financial Times reported, citing one person aware of the matter. The Abu Dhabi fund already owns 50 percent of Viceroy, which has more than a dozen hotels across the world, while the remainder is owned by Low and affiliates that purchased rights to and interests in the hotel group with funds from 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB), the newspaper said.
