State aid: Commission approves restructuring aid for Greek bank Eurobank
The European Commission has found the restructuring plan of Eurobank Group to be in line with EU state aid rules. The plan will enable the bank to become viable in the long term without unduly distorting competition. Greece has committed to a comprehensive set of measures covering both the restructuring of Eurobank’s activities and the credit policy of the group. On the basis of the plan, the Commission has approved under EU state aid rules the restructuring aid granted by Greece to Eurobank Ergasias S.A., including recapitalisations by the Hellenic Financial Stability Fund (HFSF) in 2012 and 2013, as well as the HFSF’s backstopping of the ongoing recapitalisation. The Commission has also approved Eurobank’s acquisition of Nea Proton Bank and New Hellenic Postbank, whose integration within Eurobank will reinforce the viability of the group without unduly distorting competition.
Commission Vice President in charge of competition policy Joaquín Almunia said: “The restructuring of Eurobank is an important step forward for the Greek banking sector. The restructuring plan approved today reinforces the viability of the bank and ensures that it will be strong enough to support recovery in Greece by providing credit to the real economy.”
