Russia's biggest lender Sberbank, which completed the purchase of local Magyarorszagi Volksbank on February 15, targets to boost corporate lending in Hungary to EUR 200mn by end-2012, Hungary AM reported, citing deputy chairman Sergey Gorkov. The bank aims for a 5% share on Hungary's market. Sberbank acquired Magyarorszagi Volksbank in 2011 as part of a deal in which it bought Vienna-based Volksbanken International AG (VIA), the eastern European arm of Austria's Oesterreichische Volksbanken. Magyarorszagi Volksbank will be rebranded as Sberbank in 2013.
