MANILA - Ayala Corporation on Monday said it has signed a deal with the Villar Group for the sale of its 100 percent ownership stake in the MCX Project Company Inc (MCXPCI).

MXCPCI is the special purpose corporation that will hold the concession assets, rights and obligations for the Muntinlupa-Cavite Expressway Project, Ayala Corp said in a disclosure to the stock exchange. 

AC signed an investment agreement with the Villar Group's Prime Asset Ventures, Inc (PAVI), it said.

Ayala Corp said it is also currently in the process of transferring the concession assets and obligations under the MCX Project Concession Agreement (MCX CA) to MCXPCI.
