Shareholders of Gránit Bank on Thursday approved a 2 billion forint (EUR 5.0m) capital raise in the lender by Tiberis Digital, a unit of Hungarian-owned BDPST. Gránit Bank said Tiberis Digital’s stake will rise from 43.2% to 44.8% as a result. BDPST acquired a 57% stake in Gránit Bank a year ago. Gránit Bank said Q1-Q3 after-tax profit of 8 billion forints was placed into profit reserves. Éva Hegedüs, Gránit Bank’s chairman-CEO and minority owner, told shareholders that the lender’s pre-tax profit is expected to climb over 12 billion forints, while its balance sheet comes close to 1,000 billion forints. Growth of both deposit and lending stock beat the average for the sector, she added.
