Privatisation of Niska Banka and Panonska Banka – Government of Serbia / World Bank

The predecessor company to Financial Access was retained by the Serbian bank restructuring agency (BRA) for the preparation of 2 banks – Niska Banka and Panonska Banka — for privatisation via trade sale. Due diligence was co-ordinated amongst several professional advisers under out guidance, and selling documentation was prepared. International investors were identified and a sale process designed and executed. The government realised a successful privatisation of the two banks with substantial receipts and the return of these institutions to the private banking markets. The process was supported with assistance from The World Bank.
