Westpac said in a statement to the Australian Securities Exchange, it had completed the acquisition of the target's Australian asset finance business, Capital Finance Australia.

It also purchased the BOS International (Australia) Ltd, target's Australian corporate loan portfolio.

The bidding war for the target's assets had also comprised Macquarie Bank and ANZ.
