Miloud Chaabi & family was bornon September 15, 1930 in Morocco. Miloud Chaabi's Ynna Holding develops real estate, operates hotels and supermarkets, and is the majority owner of SNEP, a chemical manufacturer in Morocco. In 2014 his son Omar denied published rumors that the group was hard hit by a real estate slump, citing its diversified businesses; he didn't disclose revenues. However, Chaabi is no longer a billionaire due to lower multiples for comparable publicly-traded companies. A French cement company reportedly sued Ynna for alleged breach of contract, and in 2011 a Swiss arbitration court ruled in the French company's favor; recently, so did a Moroccan court. The Moroccan judge ordered Ynna to pay damages. Chaabi disputes the ruling.
