Abu Dhabi state fund Mubadala said on Monday it has taken a stake in a local artificial intelligence company Group 42 (G42).

As a result of the transaction, Mubadala will transfer ownership of two information technology companies - Injazat and Khazna - it owns to the firm.

Injazat is a cloud and cybersecurity business, while Khazna Data Centers is a commercial wholesale data centre provider.

The size of the stake was not disclosed in the Mubadala statement.
