McLaren Group Ltd. said 150 million pounds ($185 million) has been injected into the British supercar maker by way of an equity subscription.
McLaren obtained the loan from National Bank of Bahrain BSC, which is an associate of the carmaker’s largest shareholder Mumtakalat. “This loan had been provided with support from the existing shareholder group,” McLaren said in its annual report.
