As reported by Reuters, payments company and RippleNet customer Finablr has been acquired by a consortium of Israeli and Arab Emirates companies for a nominal $1.

Finablr hits financial snag, sells its business

Finablr has run into major financial difficulties, Reuters writes; thus it has made the decision to sell its entire business.

Global Fintech Investments Holding (GFIH) has joined forces with Royal Strategic Partners from Abu Dhabi to acquire the RippleNet member, according to a statement by Finablr.

The purchase price was a nominal $1. GFIH will be providing capital so that Finablr can continue operating and maintain the support of its stakeholders, among whom are its staff and creditors.

Potential insolvency detected earlier this year

In March, Finablr warned shareholders of its potential lack of solvency and hired experts from Skadden law firm to check for any misconduct in the company's past performance or whether misappropriation of assets took place.
