SKB with excellent financial results in the first half of 2016

In the first half of 2016, SKB Group reported EUR 34.2 million of net profit. This excellent financial result is due to intensive sales activities, strict cost and risk control, as well as one-time business events on the sale of capital investments. Commercial upswing of SKB Group will be accelerated by the acquisition of 100 percent stake in the company BPF FINANCIRANJE, the owner of which became SKB Leasing, and which clearly reflects the Société Générale Group’s confidence (the owner of SKB since 2001) in the future economic development of the country and its will to continue to invest in Slovenia.
