It is B for the subject identified by Fitd, the Interbank Deposit Protection Fund, to negotiate the sale of the controlling stake in Carige. This is what Ansa learned in financial circles on the day when the Fitd met the management committee to examine the proposals received for the Ligurian cash register from Crédit Agricole, Cerberus and, indeed, Bper.
Positive closing on the stock exchange for the Genoese bank. The stock rose by 0.97% to € 0.89, on expectations of a more generous takeover bid compared to the € 0.89 of Bper’s initial proposal, while the Emilian institute appreciated by 0.34%, to 1.91 euros. The market has easily digested the lowering of Bper’s claims, which is said to have reduced the request for financial dowry to the Fitd from 1 billion to around 600-700 million. “The change could still make sense for Bper as the benefits of the DTAs are close at hand,” commented Mediobanca analysts. The choice of the Fund seems to confirm this thesis.
