MOSCOW, Oct 29 (Reuters) - Russia's largest lender Sberbank SBER.MM said on Tuesday it had signed a non-binding agreement with lender Gazprombank GZPRI.MM to buy a minority stake in joint venture MF Technologies.
MF Technologies was set up by Megafon MFON.MM, Gazprombank, Rostec and USM holdings in 2018 and holds a stake in Mail.Ru Group MAILRq.L.
Sberbank said it plans to sign a binding agreement with Gazprombank this year.
A banking source and a source close to Mail.ru told Reuters on Monday that Gazprombank was in early stage talks to sell its indirect stake in Mail.Ru.
