BNP Paribas Leasing Solutions signed a memorandum of understanding for the 100% acquisition of IKB Leasing Romania, a leasing company specializing in agricultural material financing.

IKB Leasing Romania, founded in 2008 and based in Bucharest, is a company specializing in professional equipment financing, particularly agricultural equipment.
