WARSAW, March 27 (Reuters) - Poland’s fourth largest lender by assets mBank said on Tuesday that proceeds from the sale of parts of its mFinanse business would increase the bank’s first-quarter net profit by 177 million zlotys ($52 million).
The bank, a unit of Germany’s Commerzbank, said in a statement that total proceeds from the sale would amount up to 491 million zlotys. The bank said in November it planned to sell parts of mFinance for a total of about 520 million zlotys.
The bank said it was selling the business to Phoebe IVS, based in Denmark.
