OTP Bank to buy Slovenian peer
Hungary's OTP Bank offered €300 mln in a non-binding bid for Slovenian state-owned bank Nova KBM in July, Reuters said today, citing a report that appeared in the Slovenian paper Finance.
OTP Bank’s bid for the Slovenian bank was the top non-binding offer, ahead of the bid from US private equity firm Apollo Global Management, the Slovenian newpaper reported, citing unnamed sources.
Binding bids for Slovenia's second-largest lender must be submitted by October 7.
OTP Bank has units throughout the CEE region but not in Slovenia.
