Komercijalna Bank receives no acceptable takeover bids. The leading local lender Komercijalna Bank announced that it has not received an acceptable bid for the 52.8% stake in it offered for sale by a group of shareholders. In May, shareholders of the lender, controlling 52.8% of its shares, have concluded an agreement to examine the possibilities for selling their stake to an international bank. Komercijalna Bank hired UK-based Nomura International as an advisor. However, in its yesterday’s announcement, the lender comments that it will continue to operate with the existing shareholder structure. The bank did not comment on the limited international tender announced for the stake, which ended on November 1. Unofficially, the names that have so far appeared in the media as potential buyers of the majority stake in the bank have been the French Societe Generale, the Italian Intesa, the Austrian Raiffesenbank, and the Greek Alpha Bank. After the announcement that the sale has failed, the price of Komercijalna Bank’s shares has dropped 9.9% yesterday.
