BBVA, Itau considering $1.5B acquisition of Banco Patagonia, Bloomberg reports

Banco Bilbao (BBVA) and Itau Unibanco (ITUB) are among lenders weighing a takeover of Argentina's Banco Patagonia, Bloomberg reports, citing people familiar with the matter. A deal could be valued at around $1.5B, or 2.5x book value, the report says. Local lenders such as Banco de Galicia Y Buenos Aires and Banco Macro (BMA) are also weighing an acquisition of Patagonia, though those firms would need to raise capital that could dilute their top investors to the point where they could lose control of the new combined entity, the report says.
