Under the agreement, Seoul Securities will acquire 97.5% of CJ Futures for 24.4 billion won ($19.7 million) while CJ Corp will receive one third of CJ Futures's earnings for the next two years. Kang added that the firm has intentions to buy the remaining stake in the company held by individual shareholders.
"This is a great opportunity to buy something at a price that we believe was reasonable," said Kang. "This is a company that made 3.2 billion won ($2.6 million) last year so we think it will have a positive impact on our earnings."
