SEB acquires Finnish ABB Credit

SEB has – via its subsidiary SEB Finans AB – signed an agreement to acquire 100 per cent of the shares in the Finnish leasing company ABB Credit Oy (with a balance sheet of €1.2bn according to local statutory annual accounts of 2004) from ABB Oy. The acquisition will strengthen SEB’s overall foothold in the Finnish market and also cement SEB’s position as the leading provider of large leasing financing in Finland. The Finnish branch has been active in equipment leasing and receivables financing since 1999. With a wider range of leasing services, such as sale-lease-back and real-estate leasing, it will be possible to extend the business with SEB’s existing customers in Finland and attract new customers, not least within the mid-sized corporate segment. SEB has some 300 employees in Finland representing SEB Merchant Banking, Enskilda Securities, Gyllenberg Asset Management and Diners Club Finland. SEB has leasing operations in Sweden, Finland, Norway, Denmark, Germany, Lithuania, Estonia, Latvia, Russia, Ukraine, Poland and the UK.
