Hungaryʼs OTP Bank has completed the acquisition of Brussels-based AXA Bank Europeʼs retail lending and savings, as well as its corporate business in Hungary, the lender announced late Wednesday, according to Hungarian news agency MTI.
OTP announced in February that it had signed an agreement on the takeover. The purchase price was not disclosed.
The transaction was cleared by the Hungarian Competition Authority (GVH) in June.
