WARSAW, March 22 Belgium's KBC and
Spain's Banco Santander sold almost 20 million of
shares in Polish lender Bank Zachodni WBK for 4.9
billion zlotys ($1.5 billion), or 245 zlotys per share, BZ WBK
said in a statement on Friday.
The news confirms a Reuters story from Thursday.
The final price was near the bottom of the indicated range
of 240-270 zlotys, showing demand was not as strong as the
sellers had expected. It is also 4 percent below the price from
Thursday's market closing.
($1 = 3.2392 Polish zlotys)
