Gazprom Bank Arm

BUDAPEST, Hungary -- Russian gas giant Gazprom's Central and Eastern European banking arm says it may list its shares in the next few years and was also eyeing bond markets to finance its expansion.

"Both the bond issue and bourse listing are among the medium-term plans of AEB bank," Marietta Szabo, department head of the subsidiary said at a business conference Monday.

Budapest-based Altalanos Ertekforgalmi Bank, or AEB, has been expanding rapidly since it was taken over in 1996 by Gazprom.
