Banca IFIS S.p.A. et Banca Popolare di Vicenza ont renforcé leur collaboration en acquérant chacune une participation dans le capital de l'autre.
Banca IFIS a acquis une quote-part des actions ordinaires de Banca Popolare di Vicenza pour un montant d'environ neuf millions d'euros, ce qui correspond à environ 0,2 % du capital social de la Banque " Berican ", alors que Banca Popolare di Vicenza a acheté des actions de Banca IFIS sur le marché pour un montant total d'environ cinq millions d'euros, soit approximativement 1,8 % du capital social de Banca IFIS.
This reinforcement in the relationship between the two banks has taken place following the excellent results achieved nine months on from signing the commercial agreement for the distribution of Banca IFIS's factoring products and services in the 680 branches of the Banca Popolare di Vicenza Group.
