Press release -

On 10 June 2011, ABN AMRO reached agreement with BNP Paribas Fortis on the sale of the non-Dutch activities of factoring company Fortis Commercial Finance (FCF).


FCF used to be part of Fortis Bank Belgium (now part of BNP Paribas). The Dutch part of FCF will remain with ABN AMRO and be integrated into ABN AMRO's factoring business, ABN AMRO Commercial Finance.

The planned sale is subject to the usual conditions, including advice from the Works Council and approval by the relevant authorities, including merger control authorities.
