Banka Slovakia gets bid

A CONSORTIUM of European American Investment Bank AG and brokerage house Slávia Capital will submit a bid for a 60.07 per cent stake at the smallest Slovak bank, Banka Slovakia.

Both parties expect that their mutual offer will persuade the central bank of their serious interest in the bank.

Slávia Capital already tried to get the stake on its own in the second round of a tender but did not succeed after the tender was cancelled.
