Press Release :: KBC Group

Logo KBC GroupHaving received all the necessary regulatory approvals, KBC Bank today finalised the sale of 100% of its shares of Zagiel, its consumer finance business in Poland to Santander Consumer Finanse S.A., the Polish consumer finance subsidiary of Santander Group for a total purchase price of PLN 10 million.

In the investment agreement signed on 27 February 2012 between KBC and Santander for the proposed merger of their respective Polish subsidiaries, Kredyt Bank and Bank Zachodni WBK, Santander had also committed to acquire 100% of Zagiel.

It operates through its extensive distribution network which consists of points of sale including online shops, tied agent credit points and independent brokers.

It is with regret that we say goodbye to our Zagiel management and staff. I would like to thank them for their commitment and effort over the years and wish them all the best in their future careers."
