Partially state-owned Austrian lender Volksbanken said it does not need more state aid, responding to a magazine story suggesting its debt load and problems in Romania could require extra funding.
Reuters quoted a bank spokesman as saying Volksbanken was "absolutely not" in talks about securing another bailout. While Chief Executive Stephen Koren has repeatedly refused to rule out the bank might need more aid "but that is not the case now," the spokesman said.
Austria took a 43% stake in the lender last April as part of a rescue that cost taxpayers more than EUR1bn in write-downs on previous aid, fresh capital and guarantees.
Citing internal bank calculations, Format magazine said Volksbank Romania had a non-performing loan (NPL) ratio above 30% on its loan book of around EUR3bn. But the spokesman said its NPL rate there was 23-24%, had been stable for a year and was actually improving marginally.
