POTAMITISVEKRIS is proud to announce that we advised Eurobank Holdings in a historic transaction – the conclusion of a conditional share purchase agreement to acquire its own shares in a directed share buy back from the Hellenic Financial Stability Fund (HFSF).
Following completion of the transaction, which is subject, among others, to the conclusion of a competitive process launched by the HFSF, Eurobank will be the first Greek systemic bank since the global financial crisis of 2009 to exit the state support scheme.
The transaction is innovative in that it combines an unprecedented, direct share buy back in a listed company with the combination of the conclusion of a conditional share purchase agreement with a competitive process.
The first successful divestment of the HFSF marks a pivotal moment for the Greek banking industry and the Greek economy as a whole.
