Have you ever hear of a video game company buying up bank stock? I guess that is one way of getting funding.

This is news?

 

I've known about this for years...    :amazed:

 

As I recall, the initial reason for their investment was to free up some frozen funds the bank held...

It appears WG is reducing their shares in the bank based on past news articles with Hellenic Bank

 

Mar 2019
Wargaming will become the biggest shareholder in the bank as it will control around 21.6% of its shares.

Oct 2015
Wargaming reduces Hellenic Bank stake to 24.8% from 26.21%

Nov 2011
Wargaming.net is spending 40 million euros to increase its stake in the bank, the “World of Tanks” gamemaker said on Nov. 1. It's poised to own 30 percent of Hellenic.

 

 

FYI - One possible reason they went into Hellenic Bank is because of a regional recession.

I think the relationship started with WG when Hellenic Bank open offices in Minsk back then 2011. Around 2011 to 2016 (?), those Hellenic Bank offices have been sold off to another Russian bank.

You're about right. :popcorn:

Since August 2018, it's down to about 74 players on average a day.
