History of the Bank

History of the Bank

  • About the UPI Banka d.d. Sarajevo

The UPI Banka was established in 1972 as an internal bank of the corporate system of the Udružena poljoprivreda, prehrambena industrija i promet (Associated Agriculture and Food Industries and Sales), aimed at supporting the operations of these sectors, which at the time employed more than 35,000 employees. Upon the same principle, internal banks were also organized in other sectors, and the UPI Banka was among the strongest.
Since 1990, a new phase came in the development of the UPI Banka, when it was registered as a shareholding company and it was in a majority state ownership (92 per cent). The Bank started with expansion of the network of corporate clients, focusing on the sector of small and medium entrepreneurship.

During the 1992-1996 war in BiH, the UPI Banka maintained its operations even under difficult conditions.

As early as in 2000, through the emission of shares, the Bank was fully transferred into the hands of private capital, even before the law on privatization came into effect. The UPI Banka was among the first in BiH to obtain the certificate from the Deposit Insurance Agency.

Further increase of capital and development of the Bank were significantly boosted through obtaining of the credit line from the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD), and since 2003, this financial institution also became one of the major shareholders of the UPI Banka.
For the five successive years, the UPI Banka paid dividend to its shareholders, and after the entry of the EBRD into the ownership structure, the profit was directed into capital strengthening.

The UPI Banka has joined the SWIFT since 1997, and has been a member of the WESTERN UNION network since 2002.

  • Acquisition of the UPI Banka by the Intesa Sanpaolo

The major corporate event in 2005, opening up a new stage in development of the Bank, was the change of its ownership structure and involvement of the strategic partner, Intesa Sanpaolo (Italy), as the majority shareholder.

In early 2005, activities were undertaken for selection of the strategic partner of the Bank, and invitations were sent out to the potential investors for submission of bids for acquisition of the majority package of equity shares. This initiative was responded by six banking houses. In the second round of selection, the representatives of four banking institutions conducted the due diligence of the UPI Banka, following which bids were submitted.

The consortium of the largest shareholders of the UPI Banka selected the bid from Intesa Sanpaolo as the most favorable one and the procedure was undertaken to obtain the required approvals from the Banking Agency of FBiH and the Central Bank of Italy, on December 12, 2005, the sales transaction was announced at the Sarajevo Stock Exchange (SASE), and the Intesa Sanpaolo became the owner of 35.03% of the shares of the UPI Banka. In block transactions, Sarajevska pivara d.d. Sarajevo, Klas d.d. Sarajevo, Bosna Re d.d. Sarajevo, and Coning d.d. Varazdin (Croatia) sold their equity shares to the Intesa Sanpaolo.

  • Merger with the LT Gospodarska Banka

The general shareholder meetings of the UPI Banka d.d. Sarajevo and the LT Gospodarska Banka d.d. Sarajevo, held on June 18, 2007, passed the final Decision on Merger of the LTG Bank to the UPI Banka as of July 31, 2007. The new integral Bank continued operating under the name of the UPI Banka.

The procedure for merger of the LTG Banka to the UPI Banka was initiated by the members of the Intesa Sanpaolo Group, the Privredna Banka Zagreb d.d. (PBZ), as the majority owner of the LTG Banka, with 66.99% voting rights, and by the Intesa Holding International Luxembourg (IHI), as the majority owner of the UPI Banka, with 81.18% voting rights.

After the merger, according to the proposed swap proportion in the ownership structure of the new UPI Banka, the Intesa Sanpaolo Group became the owner of a total of 77.17% regular shares of the UPI Banka carrying voting rights (of which 58.22% for IHI, and 18.95% for PBZ), whereas the rest of the 7.17% remained in the ownership of the EBRD, and 15.66% in the ownership of small shareholders.

During the year of 2011, Intesa Sanpaolo Group acquired additional shares, including the ownership of EBRD, and became the owner of 94,92 % of total shares of Intesa Sanpaolo Bank d.d. Bosnia and Herzegovina.

During 2015, within Intesa Sanpaolo Group, to which this Bank belongs to, the restructuring was implemented by changing the control over the subsidiary company with the seat in Bosnia and Herzegovina – Intesa Sanpaolo Bank d.d. BiH. The restructuring was done in the manner that the entire control package of shares of the issuer Intesa Sanpaolo Banka BiH, which was in the ownership of Intesa Sanpaolo Holding International S.A. Luxemburg, was acquired by Privredna banka Zagreb d.d.
In this way, in the middle of 2015, Privredna banka Zagreb d.d., after the acquisition of 94.94% of total issued voting shares, became the new owner of Intesa Sanpaolo Banka d.d. BiH.
The aim of this step was to reach optimum synergy effects that may be attained between Privredna banka Zagreb d.d. and Intesa Sanpaolo Banka d.d. BiH after the transfer of control package of shares.

After the status changes of the merger of LT Gospodarska banka with UPI banka, UPI Banka continued to operate until 2008, after which Banca Intesa group carried out re-branding and officially started operating as Intesa Sanpaolo Banka d.d. Bosnia and Herzegovina from August 20, 2008. year, whose majority owner today is Privredna banka Zagreb d.d. with 99.9% of shares.

  • Change of the name and corporate identity

Pursuant to the decision of the Strategic Committee of the Intesa Sanpaolo Group, on January 14, 2008, a re-branding program was presented to the public, aimed at harmonizing the image of all member banks of the Group. Pursuant to the adopted program, the UPI Banka received a new logo and a new name – Intesa Sanpaolo Banka Bosna i Hercegovina. The formal legal procedure for new registration has been completed and since then the Intesa Sanpaolo Banka Bosna i Hercegovina has been operating on the market.
Intesa Sanpaolo Bank Bosnia and Herzegovina is a member of the Intesa Sanpaolo Group, one of the leading banking groups in Europe. The Intesa Sanpaolo Group operates in 13 countries via its subsidiaries in the Central and Eastern Europe region, and has 1,800 branches and 8,6 million clients.
