The new firm will buy bad loans from the major Montenegrin lender, CKB. OTP is a 100% owner of CKB. We note that the local banking system witnessed a rapid increase of bad loans during the economic crisis, which was rather expected, having in mind the impressive lending expansion in the previous couple of years.
