Corporate Impacts

  • Greek Banks: The three major banking groups, as well as the Hellenic Postbank are interested in acquiring the Greek branches of the Cypriot banks (BoC, Cyprus Popular Bank and Hellenic Bank).
  • Cypriot Banks:The Cypriot Parliament has postponed until today at 6 p.m. the debate on the bill for the bailout package that will include amendments in order to get the House’s vote after the Eurogoup’s decision, which deposits of more than 100k will be hit with a 9.9% charge, while under that threshold the levy drops to 6.75%. However, Eurozone finance ministers agreed yesterday night that Cyprus should be allowed to tweak a controversial bank deposit tax agreed early Saturday morning in Brussels as long as it still raises the arranged amount. Furthermore, Russia has made no decision yet on whether to extend the duration or ease the terms of a sovereign loan to Cyprus. Please note that Russian banks had about $12bn placed with Cypriot banks at the end of 2012.
