YEREVAN, June 23. /ARKA/. Factoring transactions by Ameriabank rose by 66% to $31 million as of the end of 2013 compared to 2012, head of corporate transactions at Ameriabank Gagik Sahakyan said at the summing-up of the 2013 transactions.
The bank effected 675 factoring deals in 2013, of them 77% were local transactions.
