LONDON (Reuters) - The British government said on Thursday it will sell the Green Investment Bank (GIB) to Macquarie Bank [MBL.UL] in a deal worth 2.3 billion pounds ($3 billion).
"(The) deal will meet government requirements for a sale, providing value for the taxpayer while ensuring GIB continues its green mission in the private sector," the government said in a statement.
The deal includes a 1.7 billion pound transaction price and 600 million pounds of estimated future funding for existing GIB projects, it added.
