Czech investor acquires shares in Fibank
Valea Foundation owned by the Czech entrepreneur Karel Komarek participated in the capital increase of First Investment Bank- Fibank. Valea Foundation acquires 7.9% of the Fibank’s shares. The Bulgarian Development Bank acquires almost 18% of the bank’s shares. The investors have already paid for their shares. The capital increase of Fibank is a condition for Bulgaria to apply for accession to the Eurozone’s waiting room (ERM II) and the Banking Union. This is our first portfolio investment in Bulgaria, which is a promising and fast-growing EU country, Paul Schmidt- member of the Board of Directors of Valea Foundation said.
