Miroljub Aleksic, the owner of Alco Group, is interested in purchasing the state's share in Jubmes Bank, but only if the price is around EUR 3.6 million, Blic learns.
The letter of interest for the purchase of a 20.1% stake in Jubmes Bank was sent by Aleksic's company Alfaplam, which already owns 4.99% of the bank's capital. As Blic learns, Aleksic, who owns several luxury hotels and successful companies, is serious in his intentions to increase his stake in the bank, but only if the price is realistic. Blic reminds that another five companies, three of them foreign ones, are also interested in buying the state's share in Jubmes Bank.
Aleksic has confirmed Blic's findings. He says that he is interested in the purchase, but not at all costs, since the bank's solvency can be brought into question at any moment. He adds that the state could sell a share which indirectly belongs to it, leaving him with less than a majority stake.
When asked what he would do with the bank, Aleksic says that, thanks to his numerous companies, workers and partners, he would be able to considerably increase the number of the bank's clients.
– The bank could get 10,000 new retail accounts and 2,000 to 3,000 corporate accounts – Aleksic said.
