Sberbank, Russia’s largest savings bank, has formally committed to investing in the development of its future new asset, a Russian cartographic service called 2GIS, the Russian business daily RBC reported.

Under terms of the deal, Sberbank and partners are taking over a 75% stake in a company that was just prior to the transaction valued at $204.3m.

In this deal, Sberbank is reported to be pursuing the goal of “expanding its ecosystem.”
