Genoa – Finalizes Banca Carige "On the carpet" on the stock exchange, with investors struggling to digest the capital increase of 400 million euros, after 219 million "adjustments" on loans sent for the first nine months in "red" for 190 million.
The title, which was suspended from trading to avoid "volatility", could not handle most of the session. Only in the end negotiated actions, leaving "half" at the end of the day (-48.65%, € 0.0019). A downward spiral not totally unexpected, given that the bank will face, according to Bank Akros analysts, another "hyperfinite" increase, which aims to put an end to shareholders who do not have to sign it.

It will not be easy after that the bank "burned" 2.2 million euros in 5 years. It will depend on the industrial plan that Innocenzi works, which today also met the unions, to convince investors to bet again by the bank. And to do this, it will be impossible to talk about a merger: "Difficult" to do, says Equita, if it does not make new important steps in the reduction of Npl, now more than 25% of assets, but with an objective at the end of the year 15.8%.
In any case, the bank "is safe"Modiano reiterated that, if the increase falls in the desert, the Fitd will turn the bond into shares within the 49.9% limit of the capital (retain the remainder): "The fund will have hopes to be reimbursed," said Victor Massiah , Ad of Ubi, excluding "we will intervene" to take Carige.
