MADRID (Reuters) - Broker UBS said on Thursday it had placed the 12 percent stake in Spanish insurer Mapfre held by the country's largest state-rescued lender Bankia for 2.647 euros ($3.6) per share for a total of almost 1 billion euros.

The sale represents a discount of almost 3.8 percent from Mapfre's closing share price of 2.753 euros per share.

UBS, handling the deal alongside Bankia Bolsa, said that a total of 369.61 million shares were offered in the placing.
