The businessman Rubens Menin, patron of Atlético-MG, no longer appears on the list of billionaires of the American magazine Forbes, in a report released last Wednesday (15). According to Superesportes, he would have lost a great fortune.
Forbes lists those who have a fortune above 1 billion dollars, or in converted values, about R$ 5 million at the current price. The patron of the Rooster would have left the list of the American magazine due to the sudden drop in the value of the shares of his companies. Owner of MRV and Banco Inter, Menin saw his fortune plummet from $3.9 billion to less than $1 billion.
MTV shares, for example, fell from R$16.50 last year to around R$8.26. Drop of about 50%.
According to the newspaper Superesportes, this represents a vertiginous fall in the financial market in recent years. One of the reasons would be the Covid-19 pandemic itself, which strongly influenced the situation of the economy and the companies of Atlético-MG’s patron. In any case, according to a recent balance sheet, in 2022, MRV achieved a profit of more than BRL 78 million. The net sales of Menin’s company exceeded R$ 1.7 million.
