Another Banka Slovakia tender called

The FNM privatisation agency will announce a new tender for the state's 60% share in the country's smallest bank, Banka Slovakia. Two earlier tenders were cancelled because the central bank did not approve of the intentions and financial qualifications of the bidders for Banka Slovakia's licence.

A first tender for the bank was launched more than a year ago as part of a wider government programme to sell its stakes in finance houses.
