Canadians paid $103M for ABA stake: source

The National Bank of Canada paid $103 million to increase its stake in Cambodia-based Advanced Bank of Asia (ABA Bank) from 42 per cent to 90 per cent, the Canadian press said yesterday, reporting on the acquisition announced on Monday.

National Bank of Canada took a controlling stake in ABA Bank with the share purchase, raising its total investment in the bank to $148 million.

A previous version of this article incorrectly stated that National Bank of Canada had acquired an additional stake in ABA Bank by purchasing shares from the bank's CEO, Askhat Azhikhanov. Records show, however, that Mr. Azhikhanov is not a shareholder in the bank. The Post apologises for any inconvenience caused.
